Well its just a week away until the first bbq comp of this year.We are looking foward to it all though i forgot how much stuff we need to get done before this contest!It should be fun there is a bunch of stuff to do there including a wood cookery college in which they asked Alan and myself to do a demo.Unfortunely Alan can not do it because of work obligations so it leaves me solo (as I told alan there is always sick time).hope to see everyone there!

With lots of classes being taught and lots of teams taking them and the Internet we think this season is going to be TOUGH! Lexington is 1st for a lot of teams (thanks to Steve and Scott for hosting it) we think this field will be really hard to beat.It's only 24 teams which makes it even more competitive .But like any contest it should be lots of fun getting to see all the teams again to kick off the year . We are also working on a new logo hopefully to be finished by then .Next in our sites after Lexington is Merrimack which is one of our favorite contests .Good luck to all see you in April!
