CHILI CONTESTANTS

These are just a few of the campers and cookers..There were only 13 entrees for chicken, 14 for ribs, 13 for brisket..But I think some of them only entered one of them while some entered all of them...Who ever the 14th one was that entered the rib cook off, should be hung up by his balls..they were so disgusting I almost barfed.. they had put cinnamon in them..and while all the other ribs were small pork ribs and pretty tasty, the ones with cinnamon on them were huge, and were so tough the plastic fork and knife wouldn't work, we had to rip the meat off and it was so tough I broke a nail...









this one was my favorite..if you can't read it it says 3 things i hate in life..hot beer, cold women and Jeff Gordon...





These 2 were the oldest cooks there.



The bathrooms for the K.C. Grounds. It's really very pretty there and think I will go back and maybe just sit on one of the benches and eat a sammich and drink a Dublin Dr Pepper




The showers





















































I went to take a picture of the Christians cooker and fell in love with the pooch..He also fell in love with me..must like pagans..I petted on him for the longest time and when I finally walked away he wolfed and barked and whined..had to go back and pet him some more. The commented on how much he liked me...man...I wanted to say something sooooo bad..but didn't want to get thrown out before I even got started.




There is a lot of money wrapped up in these cookers..and some of them came a long ways.

You can't go wrong with a fat basset by your side.

My mama says that kids and dogs will always let you know who's good people and who's not.
