  -Venue changed to LEHI, UT –

There has been requests for a Swamp Boys Q School in Utah. I am gauging interest to see if there is enough people to hold one at The BBQ Pitstop in Lehi, UT. This would start at noon Wednesday (06/27) through dinner, then start up again at 7:30 AM Thursday (06/28) and go until about 3:30 PM. The is the day before the Traeger NorUt State Championship, so come early for the class and stay to compete in the contest.

If 15 or more people commit I will hold the class. To commit you must put down a deposit of $50, see PayPal link below. If we reach 15 or more deposits, the class will happen and your deposit will be applied towards your class fee. If we do not reach 15 or more people all deposits will be immediately refunded to your PayPal accounts.

SWAMP BOYS NATION:
A couple of years ago the Florida BBQ Association sanctioned a contest in Hobbs NM. The organizers and people of Hobbs bent over backwards to encourage anyone from FL to come out and cook their contest. I was fortunate enough to be offered the personal cook trailer of Mark Bateman of Putz Butz BBQ Team, who was also the organizer. He and his wife Jean, along with their crew of volunteers hosted a fantastic contest with the best hospitality, and those of us who went still talk about it today. We have remained friends with the Batemans and everyone else we met that weekend.putz-butts

Fast forward to now, and we are deeply saddened that Jean Bateman is suffering from Pulmonary Fibrosis. It is currently incurable but we are not satisfied with that. I am putting up a seat for any of my Q Schools in the future. The next class is being held Nov. 11-12 in Winter Haven, FL. Click the PayPal link below to make a donation of $25 to help the Batemans, and help support the search for a cure. 100% of your donation will go to helping. Each $25 donation will earn you a chance in a drawing for a free seat in my class which is valued at $500. When we reach approximately $500 in donations I will have a drawing and notify the winner. Thanks for helping brothers and sisters in need!

WE HAVE REACHED OUR GOAL OF $500!
