Default International BBQ Initiative Update

I just got home from an amazing week in England spreading the BBQ Gospel with many friends old and new. The main purpose of the trip was a festival in Bristol called Grillstock and it was a huge success. Teams from the US (Buttrub.com), Estomnia, England, and some team members from Holland. Judges from the US, England, Scotland, Estonia, and even a Britt living in Egypt. There was representation from "Barbacoa" and "Pitt Cue Boys", two of the hottest BBQ restaurants in London as well as other BBQ stands, caterers, and restaurants from around the country. Big sponsorship from Weber UK, French's UK, Newmans Own UK, Buffalo Trace, and ETI (Thermapens are made in the UK!).
I designed a unique judging system for this unique event and it worked really well. I'm very proud to be a part of Grillstock and I'll see you all there next year!

A side note, someone told me they met Carolyn Wells last week in London at Taste of London. If that's true then maybe the KCBS International Initiative is still happeneing too. They just seem to do it undercover :)
Cheers!
