and today I are a member and a certified barbeque judge and I just judged my first ever event. Just got back from the Southwest International and Arizona State Championship Barbeque Cookoff. Pretty unique situation for my first time out. We had just enough judges so Table Captain was an additional duty. So I volunteered and got to be the table captain and also judge the presentations. Kept me busy but it was fun and a great experience. Ate a BUNCH of very good que and met some really great people. I'm looking forward to the 2008 season. Today was the culmination of two whirlwind weeks at work and here around the house. Great way to wind things down a little and hopefully free me up to spend more time with everyone here online. If you get the oppportunity I would highly recommend you become a judge.
