“Conquer the Grill” running Friday through Saturday at Coudersport Jr. Sr. High School

Day 269, Living life on my terms.

I want to thank Donell, a long-time friend for pointing out an accidental omission in my story yesterday. I realized I did not acknowledge the mountain of work that has been done by young Joe Ayers in making sure that this year’s events runs smoothly. He has put in countless volunteer hours and definitely deserves our appreciation.

It also occurred to me that actually, I barely mentioned “Conquer the Grill” which is running Friday through Saturday at Coudersport Jr. Sr. High School. Not only are runners conquering the hill this weekend; Bar-b-que Pit Masters from across the region are descending on the finish line area for their own competition.

This is the second year for Conquer the Grill and it has been sanctioned by the nationally recognized Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) as an official event.

As of now, there are 12 teams registered to take part in the grilling including home town favorites; Mort’s Meat Mafia and Potter County Smoke Eaters. Teams have assembled from as far away as Buffalo, NY to Waynesboro, PA and Middleburgh Heights, OH.

Last year’s overall grand champion, Behind BBQ from Spencerport, NY has returned to defend their title once again this year.

Teams will be competing to collect points in four different food arenas; chicken, pork ribs, pork butt, and beef brisket. As part of the KCBS competition, teams collect points at various sanctioned competitions throughout the year that accumulate towards their national rankings. Awards are given in each category as well as an overall award for Grand Champion.

I should clarify that Potter County Smoke Eaters is the competition name for the Ostroski Brothers, Tadd and Joe. They are the guys who had the successful soft opening of the “Bones and Banter” food trailer last weekend.

The grills and smokers will be running throughout the night, making it tough for neighbors to sleep with the windows open with all of the wonderful, mouth-watering aromas circulating. The primary focus of all of the teams is the competition so they generally will not be preparing foods for public sale, but there are numerous other food vendors on site to keep your stomach satisfied.

Today I am going to dedicate my progress to our Coudersport grilling competitors; Mort’s Meat Mafia and Potter County Smoke Eaters. I hope everyone in the county comes out to cheer on the runners and cookers as they conquer the hill and the grill!

Will they have tee shirts and other memarobilia for sell at the school on Saturday? We would like a Conquer of the Grill shirt and a yellow race shirt with Dildine and God's Country Marathon in the front like they give the racers. Is there a discount if you buy more than one and can you order them on the internet?
