  1. You are going to have a terrific time filming this show! Chris Lilly (the host) and John Markus (producer) are top-notch. My dad judged one of the episodes last year. The National Barbecue News forum is a great group of helpful people. There are some forum members in the NYC area so perhaps you could get some personal assistance. There are also a number of barbecue teams in the area. You could check on the New England Barbecue Society and perhaps get some local names of people who might want to be on your team. Another option is to look for people who are already in Nevada or California. Good luck! Amy Mills Tunnicliffe
  2. Hey, Chris! Yes, going to Vegas did work out quite nicely! Did you end up getting an MIM contest going in L.A.? We are getting ready to head to Memphis in a few weeks. Always a fun time. If you're ever in Vegas be sure to stop by!
  3. Thanks, Neil! Please do give us a try. If you'll let me know in advance I can arrange a special tour. FYI, though, I won't be on the boards for a few days as I'm headed out of town in just a few minutes.
  4. That's okay! It's confusing... In Las Vegas our restuarants are Memphis Championship Barbecue--three locations--and in Southern Illinois (the mothership) we have two 17th Street Bar & Grill locations.

  6. I'd say the Midwest was well-recognized! There are more nominees in the other categories as well. Books Food of the Americas category—two of three are Midwesterners!
