May 29, 2017:The Que Is Set! We have our judges, we have 68 BBQ teams, and we are set for June 2nd and 3rd come rain or shine
Check out the Friday or Saturday pages for schedules of events, the location page for location and directions, and send me a e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
May 8, 2017:So far, we are expecting about 68 teams, and hoping we fill the full 75. Also, we are accepting more judges at this time, so if you would like to judge, and are KCBS Certified, please fill out the Judge's Application right online. Thanks!
Mar. 29, 2017:Good Morning! The Que continues its steady pace to fill the 75 teams we are hoping to get in for this years competition. Get those applications in to hold your place as soon as possible. I'd like to thank some more sponsors for coming in to help out the Que: Thanks to Penn Valley Printing and The Learning Experience for their support.
Mar. 19, 2017:Hello BBQ people! The Que for the Troops continues to fill up, but keep those competition applications coming. We still have a wait list open for judges available, but it is a wait list still as of now.
Jan. 31, 2017:I'm updating the competitors list today, so take a look at that on the Competition page. I'd like to thank more of our sponsors for helping out the Que: First National Bank and Trust Co of Newtown, SEI, Giant Foods, and Brown's Shop Rite.
Jan. 30, 2017:WE ARE NOW FULL ON JUDGES. JUDGES IS FULL. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO STILL FILL OUT THE APPLICATION IT WILL BE FOR THE WAITING LIST. THANK YOU
Jan. 25, 2017:Update time for the website. I'd like to thank Waste Managemenet and Action Karate of Newtown for their sponsorship Que for 2017. I'd also
like to thank all of the judges that have already signed up for the competition. We are ALMOST at the waiting list number. Not yet, but close. As soon as we do
hit that mark I'll post here that all enteries will be now entered to that waiting list.
We have had a bunch more teams sign up, with a lot of them contacting that they will be in the competition this year but haven't yet completed the form and payment process. That's not a problem, keep them coming teams. I'm gonna update the competitor's listing for all the teams that have fully completed the registration at this time, but for the teams that didn't pay, don't worry, I see and am accouting for you in my layouts.
A Reminder For All Teams: We will try our best to adjust for any notes about location you add to your completed application, but zero promises. Do what we can, but it's gonna be what it's gonna be at the end of the day..
Jan. 9, 2017:The rush on the judges has slowed, so we still have spots open at this time for any KCBS certified judge interested in being apart of our competition on Saturday. Lets welcome Piggin' Whiskey from Flourtown, PA to the Que for their first time. We also welcome back Brisket Burners, Dead On Q, and QueGasm for 2017.
Jan. 5, 2017:We welcome back Smokestack Redemption, Burnt Side Down, and Lo'-N-Slo' BBQ to the Que
Jan. 4, 2017:As of 9:45am today, we have 3/4th of the judges it needs for this years Que, as recommended by our reps (who are awesome) for 75 teams.
When we do this the recommended mark I'm going to keep registration open, but it will be for the wait list. This is all first come, first serve, and with
everything being online this year it's very easy to sort that out.
Don't worry, I'll make sure to post when that transfer from main comp to wait list happens on the registration form.
Also, lets welcome back to the competition The BBQ Guru, Smoke N' Dudes, and Herm's Hogs.
Jan. 3, 2017:More teams, more good. We get to welcome new teams Smoke or Be Smoked from Drexel Hill, PA and Smokin' Addiction from Medford Lakes, NJ
to the competition. We also get to welcome back Guyutes Barbecue, Philly Blind Pig BBQ, Glazed and Infused New Jersey BBQ, Pigheaded BBQ,
and The Berkshire Bullies back to the Que for 2017.
Jan. 2, 2017: Ok, the Que is a popular thing to join on New Years Day. Registration has been open for 14
hours, as of this writing, and I have 62 registered judges and we also have our first 8 teams locked in, as well.
Lets welcome back Carver's Que, Wilbur's Revenge, Jurassic Pork, Checkered Flag 500, Smokin' Tex BBQ, Poppa Q BBQ, and Redneck Smoke Club. We also have a new team to the Que already registered, so lets welcome Cooks N Hooks from Secane, PA to our event.
Jan. 1, 2017: Happy New Year everyone! As of 11am (looks like the internets had a hangover early)
the registrations are available. The links are under the forms page, but I'll put them here for now. You can...
Dec. 20, 2016: The 2017 Que is set for June 2nd and 3rd. Registration for competitors, judges, and sponsors will be done all online this year. Registration opens January 1, 2017 via the Forms page. If you have any questions please e-mail Matt at email@example.com.
