I was privileged to be part of a five-member team of volunteers who prepared 72 turn-in boxes for a KCBS judging class in Orange County, California.
36 Certified BBQ Judges (CBJs) were minted on March 21, 2009. These CBJs will be judging the 2009 Wishland Que’n for kids BBQ Contest on May 9, 2009, in beautiful Costa Mesa, California.
The Wishland, now named Kristie’s Foundation, helps critically ill children and their families including raising money to build Kristie’s Place, the first children’s end-of-life care facility in Southern California. The mission of the California BBQ Association (CBBQA) is to teach, enjoy, preserve, and promote barbecue as a true American food and to help various children’s charities by conducting BBQ events throughout California.
