Amateur Barbeque League
As promised dear readers, I investigated the Amateur Barbeque League. I sent a message to Mike at ABL and this is what he said...
"The Amateur Barbeque League was recently formed with the intention of having a place where people can have a chance at a good prize pool and hone their skills. We will be donating to several children charities. There are 6 of us on the board of directors and then there is myself who is putting it all together and managing the business.
The site wasn't supposed to be seen yet. Guess I made a mistake by joining smoke ring early. We have 42 cities lined up and will have 60 total for 2006. The dates will be posted in the next few weeks. The dates posted now are just to fill in space."
So it looks like the ABL is legit. I'm still not joining in until I see some more progress on its site and contests, but I look forward to their expansion into the world of competitive BBQ.
