The Finished Trailer

I don't think I ever shared the new trailer with graphics with y'all.  Well, here it is. Timm designed it, he and Chris built it.  Scott and Dad helped out when they could. It's worked out great so far.  Improvements additions seem to keep Timm busy with it.  It traveled clear to Bentonville, Arkansas in October and back.  We were sure glad we had the enclosed part when it rained for 3 hours back there. 
Gosh, it's hard to believe it's been a year since we decided to build it.  The contest in Lake Havasu was the turning point and deciding factor to build it.  Seven thousand dollars's a great trailer.  Still don't have the waster tanks put under it yet and the sink put in but Timm is still trying to figure out if he wants them on there or not.  
It draws lot of attention when we're out, then again, so did the pit when it was on it's original trailer.  Folks always want to ask questions, see it, take pictures, etc.  There was even a guy that stopped by the house over the weekend to see it.

First Contest 2013

Our first contest of the year is just over a week away.  We'll be heading to Lake Havasu City, AZ on the last weekend of January for the Music, Brews and BBQ contest.  
Our plan is redeem ourselves from last year's results.  In fact, this contest is why we built our new BBQ trailer.  Last year, at one point there were 15 people in our booth.  We shot ourselves in the foot for sure.  
Come on down (or up) to Lake Havasu on Saturday, January 26 for some great barbeque.  Teams will be offering samples for a small fee, with a portion of the fee going to local charities.  We'll be offering all four KCBS meats...chicken, ribs, pork and brisket throughout the day.  
Let's hope the wind doesn't blow this year.  Last year the wind was quite a formidable foe.
There is live music, beer, food and BBQ vendors, team sampling and a carnival this year...something for everyone!  We hope to see you there!
