Who's going/competing? I'm really looking forward to it. I'm a regular reader of the forums but I don't post much.

Might speak to a few people competing and see if I can pick up some tips.

Cheers

Chris

It clashes with The Americana at Brands Hatch which was on the diary a long time ago, so I dare say quite a few of the southern based teams will be there. But good luck & weather to all going to Manchester have fun and if competing have a walk :D

The wife and I have a rare weekend off, dates fallen really well and she's from Manchester anyway.
Going for both days and staying in a hotel close enough to stagger to. The weather should be great, even in Manchester.

Can't wait.

All the weather forecasts I've seen point to an extra-ordinary event in Manchester a sunny weekend. Hope you all have a great time.

Went yesterday and had a good time. It's my birthday next week so the other half got me a cold smoke generator from Macs BBQ, will look forward to having a play with that sometime. Not as big as the Bristol event and I think that was particularly reflected by the number of teams in the competition. Still, got to sample lots of food, picked up a few tips, worth the entry fee.

It's the first go up there, 2012 Grillstock was smaller than this year's, but their dates clashed with the Nascar Americana event at Brands so a lot of us had already committed to that. Glad you had a great time, it was undoubtedly quieter, even with the music :lol: :lol:

We got back from vending at Grillstock in the early hours - awesome weekend and the visitors love their BBQ. There seems to be so much enthusiasm around slow and low at the moment.

Were you vending on the Grillstock stand? As I was very impressed with the brisket whereas normally I'm indifferent to brisket.
