CBBQA Member Team - Smell My Butts Barbeque
About our team:
We are a small family team which consists of three members. I (Glen) am the Head Cook. My wife (Janice) and son (Kyle) are my support crew.
We cook on two WSM's, a Webber Kettle, and a Brinkman "Dual Zone Professional" grill.
About out team name:
I had been struggling with creating a unique team name for some time. I had several I was considering, but hadn't made a final decision.
One Saturday afternoon, I was doing a practice cook in my back yard. I had a pork butt in each WSM, and had a nice wisp of smoke (plum and apple) coming from both cookers. There was a slight breeze directing the smoke into my neighbor's back yard.
My neighbor (John) walked into his back yard, and said "Wow, that smells great. What is it?" I said "Oh, that's just my butts." He then said "Well, your butts sure smell great." And that's when it hit me....I thought, what a great name for a team.
I told this story to my sister-in-law (Shawna), who found the perfect graphic to go with such a name. A little editing of the original graphic, finding the right font, and there you have it, Smell My Butts Barbeque was born.
