The 1st City of Taylor Sweet Corn Festival and Arizona State BBQ Championship.

When:    Sept 02, 2006
Where:   City Of Taylor Rodeo Grounds. Taylor Arizona
What:     Four meat cookoff. Brisket, Pork, Ribs, and chicken. Bring your own meats.
                                                   

Contact:  Aaron Shreeve
                 480-329-8728
                 nightwish@cox.net (preferred)

This event will be held on the rodeo grounds in Taylor. The event also has the fireman games, classic car show, crash up derby, and parade. You can camp overnight and alcohol is permitted however this contest is in conjunction with Taylors sweet corn festival so please keep a low key on the alcohol consumption once the event starts on Saturday. Anyone who cant abide by this will be asked to leave. They are making an exception so that we can drink so lets don't abuse it. We will be setting up on gravel and it does rain that time of year but for the most part it doesn't get muddy and the rain is generally brief. They also hold the fireman games during this event so bring your fire extinguishers. More than likely they will be asking us about them. I haven't decided what entry fees and prizes are going to be yet, but they will be of state championship caliber.

If you are interested in helping put this on please let me know. I need CBJs and anyone who wants to get out of the heat in Sept. to help run a contest. I need all the help that I can get. Also please let me know if you think you will compete. The more I know about how many teams I have the easier this will be to pull off. I also might be limited to the number of teams that I have space for so it will be first come first served. I hope that I can meet the requirements to make this contest a qualifier for the Royal and the Jack. I hope that this contest is alot of fun for everyone and provides a nice escape from the Valley heat.

DDog, this sounds like a fantastic event.  It is the weekend after we get back from our Annual Guys Camping Trip, so I will have to check with the boss to see if I can come out and play, but it certainly is something I would love to attend.

Where is Taylor, Arizona?

What categories are you planning on cooking in?  All of them?

Taylor is just up the road from Show Low. I will be there, haven't decided on competing yet. Think I just may. I will be teaming up with Aaron getting organized and trying dig up sponsors in the white mountain area.

That does sound appealing.  If I can't come to help compete with you guys, I will at least come to say "Hello" and check it out.  I really want to help out though.

Ddog, what type of sponsors are you looking for?  We might be interested in doing something to help out.  I also have a core group of sponsors depending upon where the event is and what type of exposure it will bring.

I think you should both compete in this contest! I have done 2 BBQ contests and I am totally hooked. It is fun to meet all the other BBQ teams and the competition aspect makes it challenging! But if we want to have more BBQ contests in AZ we need to have as many teams as possible there.

Plus Sept 4th is Labor day. So that weekend is a three day weekend and you are already up in northern AZ! Nice!

 :D There you go Ddog, upsell....upsell..  ;D

I agree with you, we do need to get more people active in these events to make them a success.  I will let you know here in a few weeks (By the end of April) if we will be able to compete, this should give us enough time to check the logistics and check with the boss  ::)

Off subject a bit, what is required at competitions like this for the rigs?  Water tanks, Sink, etc. ???

I have heard different requirements and would like to know so we don't get ticketed.

Thanks,

No they are not that strict. They might require that you have a wash basin for clean up and a fire extiguisher. Also your smoker has to use wood or charcoal only during the contest. But then again the final rules for this one have not been posted yet so this is only my thoughts.  ;D

Great, thanks for the info.  Why would we cook with anything other than wood or charcoal???  It's a BBQ cook off, not a Grilling cookoff  ;D  Just my $.02

I know you know that but some people do not understand the difference between BBQing and grilling. I know I have explained it to people a bunch of times! ;D

DDog,

I e-mailed Aaron last night and asked him to log on and post some more details about this event.  I would really like to compete in this event.  Hopefully we can get all our ducks in a row here in the next few weeks and commit to it.

Any idea how many teams are currently registered?

Not sure how many are signed up yet. Aaron has been doing the chicken with head cut off routine. I have been keeping up with reading azbbqa forums and looks to be a good turn out. Looking like a few teams from NM and CA will be there. I will be a little more in the know after we get to show low. Also if anyone has any businesses or knows any that may want to be sponsors let me know. Aaron is working on getting info packs together.

Bear,  Have Aaron get me a few of those info packs, I will send them on to some of our great sponsors to see if this would be something that interests them.

Depending upon what levels of sponsorship, we would be willing to do something too in order to promote this fantastic web site as well as our grills.

Let us know some more details.

Thanks,

How cool is that???

Hope to see a lot of you up there for this event.  Even if you are not planning on cooking, let's give a strong AZBarbeque showing and show everyone what a great group of BBQers we have here.
