The BBQ Throwdown & Jam - Salem, Illinois

Post  ILBBQS.com on Mon Aug 25, 2008 5:39 pm

Hey BBQ Brothers & Sisters,

Though I know many of the folks on this forum are from overseas, I know we have a lot of lurkers/occassional posters from the U.S. as well. That's why this post is here...

We're a few weeks away from The BBQ Throwdown & Jam in Salem, Illinois and there is still room for teams. We capped (with a waiting list) at 50 teams in 2007.

Generally speaking, team counts have been down nationwide, so attendance is expected to be down...BUT PRIZE MONEY IS THE SAME! We're going to cap at 40 teams this year and will be paying out a $5,000 purse...not to mention the contest passes we will be giving away for 2009.

If you're not familiar with this contest, it is a KCBS sanctioned qualifier...is in it's 3rd year (though sporting a new name this year)...went from 15 teams the first year to 50 teams last year...and is tied with a 2 night music festival as well. It's located in Salem, Illinois...just 70 miles east of St. Louis, 4 hours from Chicago, 3 hours from Indianapolis and Nashville. The contest and music festival is being held as a fundraiser for a local school and the American Cancer Society.

We sure could use your support! More information can be found online at http://www.TheBBQThrowdown.com .

Come on over! If I can get you here from the UK, I'll let you in for 1/2 price!! Just for the 'cool' factor of having a team from overseas! Smile
