The Pig Lebowski sent a teammate up to Moore, OK on Thursday, 5/23 to help out with the Operation BBQ Relief efforts going on. If you aren’t familiar with them, they provide hot meals to heavily affected areas following disasters. Jeremy went to help out for a week and deliver a truckload of canned goods we picked up in Atlanta:
This year The Pig Lebowski will be participating in at least two of the Smithfield Rib Challenge (http://www.kcbs.us/smithfield.php?id=2) events. Just for registering, they will provide four racks of their ribs to “test” during a competition. They will be provided at the contest for no charge.
The two contests will be Pigs & Peaches (August) and The National BBQ Cup (November). Consequently, those are the two contests where we have decided to throw huge parties on Friday. I really enjoy adding pressure to our designated “rib guy” and this is a really easy way to accomplish that!
We had our 2012 team meeting last night and one thing is certain: our teams ability to drain a keg is at the peak of its game!
Look for us in 2012 to really step up our visibility at our events. We ran through all kinds of ideas that could put things into a whole different level. I think we will need to secure at least an acre of land at every event if all things came to fruition! You have been warned.
