I'd like to get all Backyard/Amatuer division teams listed on the CBBQA Team's page.

Several are not, we need pictures with team names and hometowns.

Tim, Benny, Pat and all the "Brians", step up and be counted.

I will help you put your team page together if need help.

I think Benny and Brian K don't qualify in this category since they have entered KCBS/IBCA competitions.

We would hope all "Backyard/Amateur" teams make it to the next level in competing.

Our CBBQA Competition Pages will recognize any and all member's teams.

Benny,

I'm eliminating the "Pit Beyotch" position and replacing it with "Roadies".

Alright Darry - I'm steppin' up! I have no idea when we might actually get to a comp with our own pit, but here we are. The newest born two-person team, just me and Jen for now... Drum roll please. We've picked a name (that's the hard part right? Not the cooking...) -- Big Dog BBQ. We tossed a few other names around, this one stuck.

Now we both want to get our CBJ goin on. Jen needs to get signed up as a CBBQA member. We have the family membership to KCBS in place. All the logistics are set. Even got the blog going...not much there yet.
Now we just need time and money! :shocked:

For now we are a backyard team, slowly working toward seeing the light of day at a comp. Give us time, we will get there sooner or later. :rolleyes2: Maybe we will even pick up a teammate or two along the way.

Why big dog? Because - we love big dogs!

Those aren't dogs............Those are horses !!!

Congrats Tim. Does mean your gonna jump in and do RR#3 as a team? It would be a great opportunity to try a competition setting without as much of the stress.

I know it costs $$$, but you should at least consider taking the QN4U class. You won't get more for your money anywhere else.

They are big boys, but Newfs are quite gentle, so it's not bad. We also do Newf Rescue down here.

I'm thinking I will stick with Four Q on March 1st. Watch and ask and learn. Then I can talk with folks and hopefully get a lot of pointers from a lot of people.
And as much as the QN4U class sounds VERY useful, it isn't in the cards this time. But it will stay on the list of things to do for sure.

I'll get to one of these events with my poor little ECB one of these days. Don't you worry! Then I'll burn some chicken for ya! :frantics:

Mastiff - now THAT is a big dog! I think that's too much dog for us to handle.
We used to have Pyrs, now the Newfs. It always makes us laugh when people start telling us about the really big dogs they have -- they are usually labs...
Guess it is all in your perspective.

Jen teaches a Puppy class and many of those kids are smaller than our boys heads! Fun stuff.

I know what you mean. I can't tell you how many times I heard someone say "I have a 120lb Rottie" and it was 70- eighty lbs if they were lucky. And it was only because it was over fed.

We had a Fila up until a couple of years ago. Got him from a breeder in Brazil. Now that was a true 120 lb dog!!! Actually he was pushing 130. He was an awesome dog, VERY protective, but VERY gentle.
