The 7th Annual Smoke on the Water BBQ and Music Festival will be held in Thomaston, GA on April 4th & 5th, 2014 at Bickley's Lake. This is an FBA sanctioned event and has been chosen to be the FBA's 2014 Georgia State Championship. Featured on BBQ Pitmasters in 2012, this event has gained national recognition for the quality of music it puts on the stage, and quality of service that it provides to its cook teams, judges, and guest. With close to $14,000 in CASH up for grabs, SOTW has quickly became a cook team favorite. SOTW is a community event that benefits the the 6 Local Volunteer Fire Departments. Living in a rural area, VFD's are depended on daily and over the past 6 years, SOTW has helped the cause by donating $95,000 back into its community. Put us on your calendar for the Spring and help us to have another successful year. You can visit our website at www.sotwfestival.com for more information. or call Bobby

Was kind of hoping to make it down there to observe my first FBA event this year, but I have to be at the KCBS contest in Summerville on that date. Maybe next year!

Four weeks out. We have the entertainment lined up, our vendor section full and the cook teams Rollin' in! All we need now is pretty weather. Hopefully that's not too much to ask for with all the bad weather we have had this year. .........
