Well kiddies, after exciting finish in the 2007 Smoker of the Year Contest, it’s time to kick off this year’s competition! Going into the ’08 season, Harrison Ibach is the guy to beat…he finished 1st and 3rd last season…making him the Sultan of Smoke, the Lord of Darkness, the Secretary of Skank or maybe just Captain Cheesehead. In any case, Ibach seems to have a gift and everyone else is going to have to step up their game a bit to have a chance at besting him.
To enter the Smoker of the Year Contest, email us pictures of the darkest, nastiest fish you catch this season…black kings, chums that look like alligators, spent, snaky steelies…whatever. Click on the Smoker of the Year category on the left side of the page to see last year’s entries if you need some inspiration. The more ragged fins and fungus the better!
The Contest will run through December and then will be judged by a combination of a popular vote of the people and then by my panel of dirty rotten scaliwaggs.
This year, we’ve got some more exciting prizes in the works, so I’ll fill you in on that later. For now, however, send us your darkies!
Let’s get it on!
