In the planning stage. I, along with East Texas SMoker Co, are looking at hosting the 1st annual Smokin' for Heros" to be held in Tyler, Tx April/May next year. Location, date, time, weekend, among LOTS of other parts of this are not etched out yet. I'm heading this event, Heath is assisting with as much as he can along with another person and my wife.
A little about my background:While in the military, 13 years (4 years U.S.M.C., 9 years Army), it was always about giving and doing my part above and beyond for otheres. That's drilled into my thick skull now. LOL I've also served as Vise President of a non profit organization for the last 3 years. In those last 3 years, we were able to raise just over $85,000.00 to benefit Lone Star Warriors Outdoors. I have ennjoyed my tenure there, however it was time for me to retire from that and head in a different direction with my life. The organization I was affiliated with is still running smoothly and doing great things, and I wish them the best of luck.
This is not going to be as easy to organize as our past events, since I know little about competition Cook off's. I will be leaning heaily on guidance from others as well as our panel to get this done to the high quality I know it should be. I will keep you informed as much as possible, so stay tuned.
