This year’s National Fiery Foods and Barbecue Show is going so well it took me until now to post an update about it. Saturday was even more hectic (and a lot of fun). Here’s a brief snapshot of a photo gallery for you, including a couple pics of celebrity guest chef Norman Van Aken giving his tasty fish demo on Friday night.
Off to the Show!
Time to pack a weekend bag before I fly out to Albuquerque for the National Fiery Foods and Barbecue Show in the a-m. I’ll be posting plenty of photos in case you can’t make it, but if you can, you should. Here’s a tentative schedule of what you can expect when you’re not busy prowling the aisles for fire:
The Deadline to Advertise in the Show Program is Today!
Burn! The Official Fiery Foods & BBQ Show Program is a once-a-year opportunity to promote your products to the most targeted audience of chileheads and barbecue fans imaginable. Visitors use them to navigate through the show to find their favorite vendors. The newest batch of Scovie Award winners is also listed in this valuable resource. Buyers and the public alike take the programs home with them after the show and use them throughout the year for online shopping, etc.
Okay, I admit I fell behind on my news coverage while trying (and failing) to get a Big Green Egg out of Santa for Christmas. But that was last year. Welcome to the Brave New World of 2014. Here are a few highlights I found that you may want to know about.
