Thanks, Mike, for all the great times!
Hey all, we have truly enjoyed running this website and Forum over the years, but with the way technology is, our site just isn't relevant any more.

With all the costs associated with keeping it going and no sponsorship dollars coming in any more to help, it's just financially reasonable to keep the site going.

If you have any photos or topics on here that you like, now is the time to save them or print them.

We will be deactivating the site sometime this month.

Thank you all for your support here over the years.  We will still be around, you can find us on Facebook at

We look forward to seeing you all again soon out on the BBQ Trail.

2023 Father's Day BBQ Crawl / Re: 2023 Annual Father's Day BBQ Crawl
« Last post by Mike (AZBarbeque) on June 15, 2023, 04:19:41 pm »
The Flyer for this year's event.  Hope to see lots of you there.
This year we are moving locations to a new, long term venue/park.  

We are also trying a different approach to the Ribs this year.

Teams will Supply their own Ribs but we will also give $1/ticket back to the teams at the end of the event, so a 50/50 split.

We will be working with Prairie Fresh & Shamrock once again to get discounted Ribs delivered to the event.  When we find out what the price will be, we will let you know.  You can then choose to have the Ribs delivered or you can purchase and bring your own.

We have also reduced the Registration Fee to just $50 for the early bird this year, so make sure to get your team registered early & save some $$$.

Also, this year we will NOT be doing a Fireball Category.  It will instead be Cutwater Rum, so get to practicing.  Categories are Dessert, Entree or Drink.

Lastly, we are also changing the Bacon Category this year to Wings, so practice your best Wings as we want to see what you all have to offer.

We are excited for this year's event and the changes and look forward to seeing you all.
