Please post it or put up a link. We'll be out but Ma can't cook it. She is hooking up with her friend in the afternoon as they both have to fly out early Monday morning.

Plus....she wanted Doc to have a chance at a trophy....:elmo:

OK, so I'm kinda thinking about trying to enter this thing to support you. I think I make a great batch of chili and the wife makes some awesome tater salad, but I (we've) never done a cookoff. So, I've got a few questions for the experienced ones:

1) How does it work?
2) Does everything have to be cooked on site?
3) What is provided, if anything, and what are you allowed to bring?

I may have more, but that's a start.

I think its too late to register for this one but I would say to come check it out. Then look for a cookoff near you (KofC/VFWs) and just go for it. You'll learn as you go.

Gary, glad you guys could fit us in. I forgot to ask your mom, but how much potatoe salad should we plan on making? I saw the 3 gallons of chili, but didn't see the specs on the tater sald. Also, am I allowed to bring some sort of canopy? So far, I know I can bring a table (I'm thinking one that's about 8 feet long, is that too big or should I go for something in the 4-6' range?), chairs, pots, utensils, propane & burners, and ingredients, etc. Is there something I'm missing, I've never done this before and I don't want to come unprepared and be missing something major. Any feedback from a cookoff pro would be helpful also.

gary
02-16-2009, 03:47 PM
You can bring a canopy and if I think a 6 foot table would be better. The spots ar 10x10. A minumum of 5 pounds for the potato salad. There should be a lot of people tasting. Check what you need for your chili and make sure you have all your ingredients. You have to bring your own pots and utensils and all your own ingredients.

Great, I've got it all covered then. We'll probably make atleast 10 lbs of tater salad, the stuff goes fast. I'm looking forward to it, can't wait to meet all of you guys/gals.

Wow, that's awesome man. It sounds like it's going to be a great turn out and the weather is supposed to be fantastic. Weather.com says 0% chance of rain with the highs around 63 or so. Should be perfect.

Heading to HEB after work to get the chili supplies. I'm thinking of tweaking my recipe for the cookoff, so I'll probably make a small batch this evening to see if I can kick it up a notch. Although, it is hard to improve on perfection.

Gary, just so you know, I told my wife about you last night and she can't wait to meet you. We'd like to help you out if you have any other fundraising events or any other way you need. Let us know.

Amy's tater salad was really good. Very unique recipe.

#73 is a big ol boy, ain't he? Nice guy too. He made a point to go around to every team.

Matt Jackson looked like it will be a whiile before he has any chili or potato salad.

The Mrs slept very well. LOL

I didn't win anything, other than getting to finally meet some message board peeps. (which was much better). Joe won everything in the raffles and another category (can't remember what). Blue Crew kicked butt in a few categories. Me and the Mrs, not so much. But good food, good friends, good cause....that's what it was really all about. Gary, it was great to finally meet you and we would be honored to help out at any other function your foundation decides to put on. We'd be happy to volunteer to hand stuff out, serve people, whatever you guys would need. Let us know. :)

And yes, #73 was HUGE!

I honestly can't remember. I think he won a $25 gift card for Bubba's and another gift card for a round of golf. IIRC, he won a couple of other items. He also won 2nd place in one of the cookoff events and I think he got a knife set and a cutting board for that one.

I am sure that Gary will post the results with some pics later.

I had a fantastic time. Amy's potato salad won 2nd place and Lynn's margaritas didn't win but should have by all accounts of the tasters. We won 1st in chili but it was not me. Our team worked so well together chopping up the fixings and Dave (Glass Half Full's husband) did most of the work in browning. I just threw my 2 cents in along with a few seasonings from time to time.

Again, it was a team effort, and there is no other team I would rather have had.

The Blue Crew rocks.

BTW, nice to meet Jeremy and the Mrs. You guys need to make it out to more events. Remember to contact me this season about going to a game and being our guest at the Blue Crew tailgate.

It was great to meet you and your crew as well Ted. We had a lot of invites for football season tailgating yesterday....and we are definately going to take all of you guys up on the offer. Let us know what to bring, and we're there. Also, do you guys know of any other get togethers? We're looking forward to meeting more of the fellow boarders, so it would be nice to not have to wait until football season. Maybe someone can put something together? The beach, the lake, it doesn't matter to us.

I had a great time also and had fun meeting new people. I probably shouldn't have taste tested the margaritas QUITE so much.

And Ted is being too modest. He was the genius behind the chili!

I will probably be at the draft day party at Reliant. There was a good turnout last year of message board members there, we also were able to park free and tailgate. I am hoping they allow that again this year.
