BBQ RESCUES! Foundation’s Chef Mick Brown to Present at “I Am BBQ 2018”

 

FORT WORTH, Texas – March 14, 2018 – PRLog — As part of their newly announced #BBQProject2020, the Nonprofit BBQ RESCUES! Foundation is calling for all Grill Masters to make a little room on their Smokers for Fresh Veggies. Executive Director- Chef Mick Brown- will demonstrate how to prepare dishes that are as delicious as they are nutritious during the Seminar “Making BBQ Healthy and Authentic”. It will take place on Thursday, March 15, 2018 at 10:30am at the “I Am BBQ 2018” Conference of the National Barbecue and Grilling Association (NBBQA) at the River Ranch Stockyards in Fort Worth, Texas.

Since 1991, the National Barbecue and Grilling Association (NBBQA) has led the way in sharing and expanding the diverse culture of Barbecue through networking and education. This year’s “I Am BBQ 2018” Conference, from March 14th-17th, will give people the chance to check out some of the Industry’s cutting edge new products, trends and cooking equipment. It will also include a one day BBQ and Grilling Academy on Saturday, March 17th. The nice variety of Educational BBQ Seminars being offered are both Informative and Fun! Tickets are available to NBBQA Members and Public at www.nbbqa.org.

The BBQ RESCUES!

They were last in the Dallas/Fort Worth area September 10th, 2017 to present “Dallas Cares” a BBQ Benefit for Hurricane Harvey Evacuees and the Dallas United Way Harvey Relief Fund. The event was also sponsored by Soulman’s Bar-B-Que, Winner’s BBQ Cedar Hill, L’Dubyah’s Stiq and Stay BBQ Sauce and A Party Solution (Rentals).

All Eyes On NBBQA “I Am BBQ 2018”

#BBQ #Steaks #ChefMickBrown #NBBQA #IAmBBQ #2017
Before and After. My first-ever SCA Competition Steaks at the NBBQA “I Am BBQ 2017 ” Conference in Fort Worth, TX. How’d they do? Video Coming Soon…

 

Only a year ago, the thought of attending my first Conference of the National Barbecue and Grilling Association (NBBQA), was quite intimidating. I was not only nervous to meet (and be judged?) by some of the biggest Legends in the BBQ Industry. Even worse, I felt that the Members have all known each other for years, so me and my West Coast “California BBQ” wouldn’t be so welcome in Texas. Fortunately, I was wrong.  And Yes, I will not only be attending I Am BBQ 2018 this March 14th-17th in Fort Worth, TX., but I also have a big Announcement. Stay tuned…

#NBBQA #IAMBBQ #2017
First Day Registration at NBBQA “I Am BBQ 2017”. Must admit, it was a bit intimidating…

Upon arriving last year,  everyone I encountered was very welcoming to this Newcomer, and they went out of their way to make me feel comfortable to be a new Member of the country’s  (maybe the world’s?) largest Association devoted to Grilling. Among the hundreds of people that I met, some will be highlighted through photos and videos in the upcoming weeks. Let me encourage anyone in the BBQ Industry (or if you are adventurous Griller), do yourself a favor and join the NBBQA today. There are tons of Resources and Benefits you can enjoy throughout the year. Also, please try your best to make it to Fort Worth for this year’s “I Am BBQ 2018” Conference.

#MarkLambert #ChefMickBrown #NBBQA #IAmBBQ #2017
At Opening Night Reception one of the first people I met was Mark Lambert. Talked to him for about 20 Minutes before finding out he was the new incoming Chairman of the NBBQA. My Bad.

Why should you go? One obvious reason is that you will have a chance to sample more delicious Barbecue than you can “Shake a Fork At”- prepared by some of the most accomplished Grill Masters in the world. Yes, people came from Mexico, China and as far away as Austraila to attend the event last year. Also, you will get a chance to check out some of the Industry’s cutting edge new products, trends and cooking equipment before anyone back at home. This year’s conference will also include a one day BBQ and Grilling Academy on Saturday, March 17th. Finally, the nice variety of Educational BBQ Seminars being offered are both Informative and Fun!

#MamaShed #ChefMickBrown #LindaOrrison #TheShedBBQ #NBBQA #IamBBQ
At the last day’s Big BBQ Bash, I was recruited by The Shed BBQ Team, led by outgoing NBBQA Chairperson Linda Orrison aka Mama Shed.

Which takes us to the big Announcement- I have been invited to join the NBBQA Faculty to help with this year ’s event. Also, I will be co-hosting a Seminar on (what else?) “Making BBQ Healthier and Authentic” along with True Made Foods Founder Abe Kamarak. A subject that is increasingly important as we move BBQ into the future. To combat the ailments affecting our Community like High Blood Pressure, Diabetes and Childhood (and Adult) Obesity. People are listening to their Doctors and Nutritionists and seeking to add Healthier Meat Recipes and fresh Veggies to their diets, while trying to limit Calories and the heavy use of Salt and Sugars that exacerbate these conditions. More and more people who love BBQ are looking to see Lighter offerings on Menus, including Vegan Options. Those BBQ Food Operations that take heed will not only attract more new Customers, but also keep their “Regulars” healthy enough to keep coming back.

Look for BBQ RESCUES! to add more on the NBBQA (National Barbecue and Grilling Association) “I Am BBQ 2018” Conference as it heads to Fort Worth, Tx. March 14th-17th in the upcoming weeks. Hope to See Ya’ll There! Until next time- Eat and Be Well.
