2-28 - Shotgun Fred in Huntsville, TX
3-6 - Sam's Club in Shreveport, LA
3-13 - Sam's Club in Ft. Worth, TX
4-2 - Cedar Park BBQ in Cedar Park, TX

Right now I'm looking for a fun BBQ road trip for a contest in May or June. Would love to hear what some of the best/must attend competitions are around the country in those months. Would be even better if I could find one of them that has a comp on Saturday and Sunday so I get the most bang for my buck on my trip.

Right now my contest for May would be the Smokin In Mesquite Championship in Mesquite, NV.
Road trip on up to Westmont, IL! Its a double over Memorial Day weekend. It's a huge, well run contest.
