A new CBJ class

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of heading out to Shannon, Illinois to assist Mike and Theresa Lake with a KCBS Certified Barbecue Judge Class that they were putting on. Mike is the President of KCBS and he and Theresa run one of the best contests out there, The Illinois State BBQ Championships in Shannon. There were a total of 33 brave new CBJ's in this class, as the Northern Illinois region was getting hit with a real good snow storm. Amazing the determination of folks for their love of BBQ! The main reason I was going out for this class was so my sister, Liz Anne, who is usually out with us competing, could take the class and become a CBJ. So if anyone happens to have a straw hat and pink suspenders, it would be a gift she would treasure for years to come!!! ;-)

Until our next adventure!
