What does that mean? I'll let Eric elaborate on this but we are not only open to members of the brethren. Just helping get the brethren message out!

First a BIG thanks to Brian for putting our tag on BBQ at The Beach.

This is the first step in branding a series of contests nation wide with The Brethren name. Our goal is to eventually bring a known and recognized standard of excellence to these contests.

Future contests tagged "Battles of The BBQ Brethren" will conform to a footprint we have established over the past few years giving organizers many options to go 'outside of the box' to create contest that is team friendly, and while bringing a known and standard set of variables to the table, will also tests our teams creativity and abilities beyond the norm. Currently, contests can be sanctioned under any of the major organizations(KCBS,FBA, NEBS, etc..), OR unsanctioned and using the "Brethren Rules" which will be posted within the next few months.

Brian and the organizers of BBQ at the Beach are getting in on the ground floor. Our team will be working with Brian as much as we can to help this contest be a a huge success. With our tag comes nation wide exposure, advertising in Smoke Signals, here on the forum(as soon as I get it in place), and in the Bull sheet. We are also opening up the resources we have built over the past 3 years as well as a couple of secret weapons.

I am also working on another forum area and web presence specifically for our contests, including electronic registration. We will work with contest organizers to ensure the contest is run as smooth as possible and once established, teams and judges will realize that we will go to great lengths to maintain high standards at these contests. Hopefully, with our nationwide(ok, international ) presence and cooperative efforts of organizers, reps, teams and judges, we will be able to build a strong resource for organizing teams to turn to for anything thats needed in the regions.

We are at the ground floor. 7 years into our organization with 15000+ members. This will take time, and effort. We have high hopes, but realistic expectations. All I can say is someday................
