SAVE THE DATE!!!! I am very happy to announce that the Florida BBQ Association (FBA) Board of Directors has approved my FBA Sanctioned Contest in Jacksonville, Florida on November 23rd. It is now on the FBA website calendar.

It is called the 1st Annual Smokin’ Flamingo BBQ Festival and will benefit a multitude of charitable causes via the Fraternal Order of Police Foundation. We will have live bands. We are also working on having a Public Safety Fair with displays and various demonstrations from the Sheriff’s Office.

The event is being held at the Flamingo Lake RV Resort, located at I-295 and Lem Turner Road (easy access). The Competitor’s cook sites will be large pull-thru RV sites (much larger than 20x40) with water, 30/50 amp electrical and sewer hook-ups. The Judges will be in a climate controlled building.

There will be a Pro Division as well as a Backyard Division.
