    For some reason, I enjoyed the first five minutes more than the last five minutes of this vid. :_toastbeer:

    Put my name on the Reviewers Cup list.

    Hey, I didn’t see Intensity Academy listed as a vendor. Gonna miss those folks!

  • July 26, 2010 at 6:25 am

    Mine too please

  • July 26, 2010 at 8:15 am

    I thought they had 75 vendors showing up. ?

  • July 26, 2010 at 8:30 am

    Same here. The WOF won’t be the same without Michele and Tom.

  • July 26, 2010 at 10:42 am

    46 heck that’s close! I thought I saw somewhere that there was 75 vendor spaces. Maybe several of these have 2 spaces.

  • July 26, 2010 at 12:01 pm

    They’ve got some family matters they have to take care of. I spoke to Tom a few days ago, it was kind of last minute. We’re definitely gonna miss ’em at the show.

  • July 26, 2010 at 1:12 pm

    Are they selling beer, or do I have to bring my own???

  • July 26, 2010 at 1:15 pm

    Cool spoon, Buddah! I can’t wait for this years events and Open House! It’s going to be great to see all you lovely people again!

  • July 26, 2010 at 2:33 pm

    Either or…

  • July 26, 2010 at 2:40 pm

    Thanks, I look forward to seeing everyone again. Home away from home so to speak. :_toastbeer: I need a foo-foo clink emote

  • July 26, 2010 at 3:18 pm

    Maybe both?

  • July 26, 2010 at 3:20 pm

    Jungle Jim’s has more beer than Germany. Don’t fret it.

  • July 26, 2010 at 9:54 pm

    So I see on Jungle Jim’s site about how involved the Bloggers are going to be this year..and about tasting and judging 2 contests..one a best new..and a bloggers choice…which bloggers get to participate in that??

  • July 26, 2010 at 11:35 pm

    I’m assuming all the ones on Buddah’s list to get free passes, which would include just about of us here, on The Hot Zone, Hot Sauce Daily, etc.

  • July 26, 2010 at 11:45 pm

    Buddah’s just trying to copy me again. Of course, mine doesn’t have any fancy website address or anything. 😛 😉

  • July 27, 2010 at 3:13 am

    No clue. It isn’t specific, but I would think Scott is K-rect.

  • July 27, 2010 at 3:15 am

    Mine wasn’t purchased at a .99 cents store and engraved with an erector set like yours. No shine baby, no shine!

  • July 27, 2010 at 6:17 am

    Mine is an original Paul Revere spoon that I bought off Chumley at Pawn Stars. I just sanded off the REVERE and scratched on FIREHEAD THOMAS…it’s sweet.

  • July 27, 2010 at 8:55 am

    Sure, mine may have lost its luster over many a year of hard-fought culinary battles and courageous gallantry, but it can still kill a full-sized Grizzly with two carefully executed moves.

  • July 27, 2010 at 9:59 am

    sweet informative video! nicole and i are super excited to come out there and see you all again, and meet some new people as well. We’ll be featuring all of the main HBD items, including the new improved SUPER SIZED dry rubs. And yes we did reserve #10 of the “albo’gator” for the brownie brawl buster champion!!
    Thomas, you should trade in your spoon for ladle with a bunch of bling on it!

  • July 27, 2010 at 12:23 pm

    Eric and I should be there around mid-afternoon.

  • July 27, 2010 at 1:19 pm

    friday….ETA 5:30PM

  • July 27, 2010 at 2:31 pm

    Saturday morning – stopping West of Wheeling, WV Friday night – we have to work all day before we leave on Friday.

  • July 27, 2010 at 2:32 pm

    Good idea Johnny!

  • July 27, 2010 at 2:42 pm

    Cool. Yeah, we’re heading out about 8pm Thursday night. With a straight drive, we should roll in about 8am Friday. After we setup the booth (and tap into the greater Cincinnati power grid), it should be about 12-1pm. By that time, I’ll be singin’ “It’s 5 o’clock somehwere”.

  • July 27, 2010 at 2:54 pm

    Everybody have safe trips!!

  • July 27, 2010 at 3:06 pm

    I’ll be at Jungle Jim’s Thursday evening 5-8 upstairs on the patio smoking a cigar and drinking a couple o cold ones. Anybody happen to get in Thursday evening come look me up.

  • July 27, 2010 at 3:21 pm

    Nice, I wish we could get there sooner…

  • July 27, 2010 at 3:24 pm

    Actually I have a funny story. Last year we rented a big Dodge Ram pickup for the journey. I looked at the Weather Channel before we left, and it showed a teeny little cloud line heading east. There was no cap on the truck, but since it didn’t look like much rain, we just duct taped the show tubs to make them water resistant. We hit WV about 3:30am, and the sky opened up. We pulled into a closed gas station and proceeded to unpack the entire truck, and wrap it in the tarp for the tent. Not something I really planned on doing, nor was I in the mood for. As we repacked, I looked over at the gas station and saw something. Inside the closed gas station was a sign, a sign that would make any man feel as if he had reached Nirvana. I pointed and grunted at Maggie, she hadn’t a clue what I was staring at. Inside the CLOSED station was an area with a large neon sign, broadcasting to the masses, it said “THE BEER CAVE”. Maggie had to physically put me back in the truck, and we continued to Jungle Jims. To this day, that sign is still burned into my psyche.

  • July 27, 2010 at 5:02 pm

    Hmmmmm…that just gave me an idea for a new drawing…thanks Scott! lol! 😛 :mrgreen:

  • July 27, 2010 at 5:03 pm

    Now THAT’S a cool sign! :mrgreen: :_toastbeer: Where is this at??

  • July 27, 2010 at 5:04 pm

    That can’t be good. 🙄

  • July 27, 2010 at 6:21 pm

    LOL! See there? Buddah knows me too well! 😉

  • July 27, 2010 at 6:59 pm

    looks like a Speedway gas station to me.

  • July 27, 2010 at 7:00 pm


  • July 27, 2010 at 9:33 pm

    I can just see a new cartoon with a dull-looking spoon and Yogi Bear to promote this…

  • July 27, 2010 at 11:22 pm

    It’s just the first I’ve heard of it..hope I’ll get filled in once we get there..

  • July 28, 2010 at 12:59 am
