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.
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!
