Wanted: Weekend BBQ Warriors

They call them weekend warriors, cooks that have mastered the art of barbecue in their backyard, but have never competed in a sanctioned competition. The Coeur d'Alene area is full of them, and Greg Prado, board member of the Pacific Northwest BBQ Association, wants to smoke them out with a new competition in Coeur d'Alene on June 29. The event, Bikes, Brews and BBQs, is designed to create a cheaper and less intimidating atmosphere for weekend warriors to transition into full-scale competition. "We created this one-day competition to get these guys off the fence," Prado said. "That is why I am on the board, I really want to grow the culture of barbecue in this area"/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
