Winchester Tn. was the first contest I would judge. Here I got to meet Fred and Linda Gould, two of the really great people in BBQ. Her I learned what a community BBQ contest was all about. Next I would judge Huntsville. I was obsessed with getting my 30 to become a master judge as quickly as possible. Later I would take judge training for MIM and the FBA. Back then It was nothing for me to drive five hours one way, judge a contest then drive home. Along the way I would meet many great people like Terrill Jones.
