Joplin, MO Donation

Dear BBQ Friend:

     First, I'd like to congratulate Lee Thompson and his wife Judy of the Smokin' Butts BBQ team for their 3rd place overall finish at the Smokin' on the Lake in Monrsmokin butts competition bbq teamoe City, MO. Smokin' Butts is another Moore's Marinade sponsored team. They had nice walks with 3rd in chicken, 8th in ribs, and 3rd in pork.

     I was talking to Lee the other day giving him some advice on his brisket and he mentioned he had friends in Joplin, MO and he was headed down there to cook some BBQ for the folks in Joplin who got hit by the tornado. That's just the kind of guy Lee is - as are most BBQ loving people. I thought it would be a good idea to help him out especially since they are right in the heart of BBQ country. If you would like to make a donation, just use the Paypal button below and I'll forward all the donations to Lee so he can cook more BBQ for those folks who need it....

Note: We collected $2246 for Lee Thompson's BBQ relief efforts and the money has been sent to him already so we are closing the donations. A big, huge THANK YOU to all those who donated. If you would like to make a donation to any further relief efforts, visit one of the sites below...

P.S. I have a contest comming up in N. Augusta, SC this weekend so this month's newsletter may be a little late. So far we have placed 3rd overall in King's Mountain and 4th overall in Waynesboro, GA. I should have a video put together shortly.

P.P.S. Have a great Memorial Day weekend and cook up some great BBQ! Remember those who died to protect your freedom. And there's a good BBQ show on at 2:00 PM Saturday May 28th on CBS. The Ultimate BBQ Showdown. It's a pure competition with some good competitors, so it should be good. I wonder why they never ask me to do a TV show?!
