We’re Off to Austin!
Follow us as we travel to the heart of Texas for the National Barbeque Association Conference and Expo in Austin, Texas. The suitcases are packed, our presentations are as ready as they’ll ever be and we’re headed to Texas – via O’Hare…..(hopefully there’s enough time for two out of shape BBQ’ers to make the connection).
The itinerary shapes up like this:
Monday — we travel, hook up with friends and get into a Texas state of mind;
Tuesday – Bus tour of legendary BBQ joints off the beaten path;
Wednesday – Bus tour of famous BBQ joints in the Austin Area;
(Both days of these tours feature barbeque venues that we’re sure you’ve seen on the Food Channel. We will be able to have back-of-the-house tours, ask questions and sample some of the best BBQ Texas has to offer.)
Thursday – We get the chance to learn from the best in our choice of over 12 topics on the business of barbeque presented by the people who know how to do it. Mike Mills of the world famous 17th Street BBQ, Paul Kirk, author and champion competitor and Dave Raymond the creator of Sweet Baby Rays will all take us under their wings.
Friday and Saturday we will present, along with 2 other individuals on each panel, on “Compete and Win BBQ Contests” and “Pitfalls and Pleasures of Working with Your Family”
We’re going to do our best to keep you updated!
