Calling all Brethren Young & Old,
I want to personally invite each and every barbeque fan to the Iowa Barbeque Society Annual Banquet. The event is being held Saturday, January 26, 2013 in Des Moines, Iowa. The event will kickoff at 1:30pm with an "All Things BBQ Judging" roundtable hosted by Master CBJ and Iowa BBQ Society Members: Dave Compton ( Rookie 48') and Herb Kane from the BBQCRITIC.COM. They will be facilitating an interactive discussion for all banquet attendees.
Secondly, if you are a contest organizer or a cook that has been around the block this next session starting at 1:30pm is for you! At 1:30pm Dena Milhous and I will be facilitating a discussion among contest organizers about what works, what doesn't, what you need, what you don't, and will hear from cooks that can give you a cook's insight!
Following the sessions at 1:30 there will be a board meeting at 4:00, with happy hour in the bar at 5:00, and dinner and awards at 6:00.
While we would love to have each attendee be a member of the Iowa BBQ Society, membership isn't required to attend, but a banquet ticket is. The Fairfield Inn Des Moines Airport has also given us a group rate which also includes breakfast and free shuttle to and from the event location.

This is the day to rub shoulders with other Brethren and people that love bbq as much as you do! We look forward to seeing you there.
