In the years that I have attended these Nevada events the addition of newer and larger lodging facilities have diluted the concentration of participants. This venue will provide an opportunity to trade "war stories"(lies) while bring participants to interact. This will be an "off he cuff" event. To date I have only one person that has committed to attend and that is Dabney, the official event timer. Dabney is from Memphis and knows good BBQ, if the fare does not meet his expectations I will likely be disqualified for some timing infraction.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has a definition of barbecue and most purchased items claiming to be barbecue can't meet the requirements in the first paragraph.
I will be back with more details.
