Title: Red white and BBQ(Westmont IL)
Post by: Wickey-Q on April 30, 2012, 08:34:09 PM
Is anyone attending this event in may?  I compete and was looking to meet up with anyone local.  Sounds like all are from other areas of the country.

I might go to that one. I'm in Glenview, so it's probably a forty minute drive. Thanks for the heads up.

What's your team name? Are you going to compete in this one?

We have a few people in our area although not everyone is on the map that's in roll call.

I would like to meet up, try some BBQ and have a few beers with other Keggers.

I was going to compete there but the organizer was not that helpful answering my questions.  It seems like a big event.  70+ teams.  I may go down for the day to watch still.

Hopefully we can get more keggers in the area to attend. Looks like a pretty good size competition. I wonder if they will have Chicago hot links?

Last year was crazy with the rain.  We were even ordered to leave by the police due to tornado conditions.  Stuck it out and placed 6th with a first in brisket best new team and 4th in desert.

Hi Neighbor,

I bought my BSK up by you at the Ace on Half Day and 41. There is another guy on this board that used to post from Highland Park. There is a good BBQ store in Wilmette if you need wood chunks.

I got my BKK from the same Ace last July. They are really nice people at that store.  They are a big Weber and BGE dealer. I have been to that store in  Wilmette  several times. They carry a good selection of sauces and rubs. Maybe I'll see you at Westmont and say Hi.

I do like smb but this is the name choice of the team I am on.  One day I will venture off on my own as Dubs Brew and Q or Wickey Q.

Hello everyone.

I have recently decided to start my long term stock pile of food. I have found that white rice and beans navy beans, black beans and red kidney beans seem to give the best bang for your buck cal wise and protein wise. The only problem I am running into is how make them eatable.

Right now I find them incredibly plain and tbh I seriously doubt I would be able to eat that over extended periods of time.

Do any of you guys know of good recipes that are made with long term store able spices or seasonings that could be used to make this stuff taste better?

Also when I say long term I am thinking along the lines of 10 plus years of storage before having to rotate.


Thank you.

Re. Long term food stockpiling - Definitely can't go wrong w rice n beans.

Also for some variety: https://m.costco.com/all-emergency-food.html  Their stuff will likely last much longer than their marked expiry dates.

Or even more natural - how about ...
