I had an email from Cindy the other day mate,  about pitches and pods....there are other pitches (I think behind us) but where on the site folks will end up nobody knows??

The other point to make also is if folks are thinking about attending get the booking done & dusted....otherwise they could miss out??

******NEWS FLASH******

How would folks attending WoodSmoke 20 like a bit of a competition? Yes a competition at a WoodSmoke event!

STEAK OFF 20

Everyone wishing to enter is given a Steak (Ribeye) and it will be blind judged on taste. 

There will be a small fee to enter to cover the cost of the meat.

This will take place on the Saturday dinner time, 12.30.

I will give the judges and competitors a quick guide to SCA judging before (it will take about 10 minutes 🙂 ) 

Each of the competitors get to chose 2 steaks from the stock however they only turn in one - This gives you some leeway. 

Dont forget - Just like KCS you are cooking to a competition standard NOT to what you prefer. For example I like my steak blue however that would get low marks from the judges.

Nice idea and a bit of fun on the day, whilst everyone is waiting for their stuff to cook.

I know you are going to publish a full set of rules nearer the time, but is marinating the steak first allowed?
