Three organizations/companies really stood out to help make this year's conference the best yet!
- The SHED, Linda Orrison aka “Mama Shed” is the incoming president of NBBQA. She
- Meyer Natural Beef Products. There was a different smell in the air this year and itLaura's Lean Beef, Local Harvest, Greenwise and others.
- Steak Cook-off Association.
Brett Galloway brought the world of steak competition to the NBBQA. Brett convinced 3 World Championship Steak Cook-off winners and the organizer of the World Championship Steak Cookoff
to come to San Marcos to compete in a steak competition. These
champions were also pitted against 16 Low & Slow champions on
Friday night in a celebrity grill-off . To cap it off these steak
champs grilled 250+ steaks (in a driving rain) on Saturday night for
the awards banquet. Merging the world of traditional barbecue
contests with steak competition is magic. We all witnessed that
Friday night and again on Saturday.
GrillGrate got a lot of content for our 2014 TV spot but more importantly we all got a much needed injection of time well spent with good friends around the grill! Thanks NBBQA for being such a unique and outstanding group of people. See you next year in Nashville!
