There are a bunch of ways to go about this...cook for the volunteers that work at your local food bank. Cook for a church gathering, etc. If you get creative, it will work out.

I did that. I picked up a job that lets me work pretty much whenever I want evenings and weekends. I'll pull a couple of weekend shifts prior to a comp to pay for the meat and expenses. That way, the funds don't come out of the family budget.

That right there says it all... The '09 JD World Champ (and all around nice guy !!) still practicing to work on his timing.

Truly dedicated... have to respect that.

Are you having any CBJ's do the scoring, or what? Just curious how you're doing that.

I just turned two practice butts from last weekend into $100. Good for at least another case of butts.
