Whats up Matt. I am in Rancho Cucamonga not too far from you. I am also trying to move from the backyard to competition. Its good to see people in California that are into BBQ. I am going to check out the Hesperia BBQ competition this weekend, and will see you in Bakersfield in May. Good luck! Danny

Matt,

Syop by Wildomar on April 17th - Marna O'Brien Park. East vs West BBQ Contest there that day. 45 teams, and a great place to meet some of the local folks, and check things out. Let me know if you need more info.

Matt, did you miss the cutoff for Wildomar? or Hesperia?
If you missed the Wildomar cutoff, Have you called Henry to see if he can fit you in?

As many of you know, Matt passed away yesterday. This was his first post on the Brethren, and seemed to be a fitting place to formally say goodbye to him here.

God bless Matt, you touched so many people, and you will be missed more than you could have ever imagined

I thought about cooking a contest out in CA a couple years ago but didn't want to haul the trailer out there, so asked on another forum if anyone had any equipment to rent/borrow. I had never met Matt, but he asked me what do I need, what would I like to cook on and he would do his best to get me set up if I wanted to come out and cook. He was a fun guy to be around and will truly be missed.

Matt was really passionate about BBQ, and you didn't have to wonder long about what he thought about something!:) We had some interesting and refreshing conversations. He'll be missed!

Never had the pleasure to meet Matt, but from what I could tell he never candy coated the way he saw things, for that I respected him!
