Hello from way down/over in Benson, AZ! Anyone else feel like BBQ is not represented enough here in the Southwest? Been looking around at the competition stuff in Arizona and it is definitely slim pickins - especially if you're not in the greater Phoenix area.

Y'all best watch out. There's a couple folks in AZ that go by the moniker of Smokin' in AZ Smokin' in AZ and sawhorseray sawhorseray that are total BBQ outlaws and are turning out some amazing food. They will get you in a world of trouble....but in a really, really good way :emoji_laughing: They are also really good online friends of mine, but you still gotta watch out because I'm known to be a bit of an outlaw also :emoji_wink:

Warning shots fired,

Welcome from Gilbert, AZ! Both my smokers are too heavy for me to get into the back of my truck, guess the only "competition" I get involved in will have to take place in my backyard. RAY

There is a newish group that has at least a couple of events a year:

I'm really just looking for more backyard/informal type stuff that gets folks together and learning from one another. But... either way, I'll keep on grilling down here in SE AZ! Thanks everybody!
