Okay, folks - I SAID there were going to be huge things in the works, and now I'm going to make good on some of it.
Talks have been going on for some time now with the Western BBQ Association for the Utah BBQ Association to become affiliated with their organization, and now it has actually happened. The governing board of the WBBQA has accepted us, the Utah BBQ Association, to be the Utah Chapter of the Western BBQ Association. It doesn't get much more official than that, folks.
What this means to the WBBQA is that they now have access, for lack of a better word, to Utah for the purposes of promoting BBQ. They will act on our behalf for the purposes of setting up BBQ events, while showing us the ropes and getting us prepared to set them up and promote them ourselves. What this means to US, though, is far greater.
We may use their published bylaws of organization, their knowledge and their tools for the purpose of promoting BBQ in Utah, sure, but...Utah cooks/teams now can now be officially recognized because we can soon be hosting sanctioned
events right here in Utah! We'll talk more on that subject later, but take my word for it folks - this is big news! We are now actually, officially part of a larger BBQ organization that knows what they are doing, and does things right.
At your earliest ability, please register, login, and have a look around on their website
. Feel free to ask questions, but most of all, READ. Look around and get yourself familiar with the info on those pages because you're going to be cooking against some of these people! :o)
Get in there and get to know the names and the people, and post to let them get to know you, too. Post right here on our site, as well, because they're going to be visiting us on our own site as well.
Stay tuned, folks...there's MUCH more to come!
