Current Delta BBQ Battle Standings

Talk with the Board

In this month’s board meeting, We discussed a forum for you, teams and judges, to talk and bring your ideas and concerns to the MBN Board of Directors.  The Board would like to take this opportunity to provide you an arena to discuss items that are important to you.  Our goal with this blog series is to discuss topics that are important to our BBQ community, and work in an thoughtful manner to address your ideas.

Our Talk with the Board series will be topic driven, with topics changing monthly, to start.  Specific topics allow everyone to collectively voice their amazing ideas and discuss all of the avenues related to that topic.  That being said, our first discussion is “Topics”, what topics would you like to see discussed in this series?  Please leave your Topics in the comment section.
