#TeamMinnesota had the opportunity to team up with 8 competition BBQ teams to host 40 members as well as Officer Arik Matson and family.
Smoke filled the streets of Eagle Bend, MN as pitmasters spent the morning teaching our members how they prepare chicken, ribs, pork, & brisket. We were also fortunate to be joined by Troy Johnson of the Steak Cookoff Association who graciously prepared his competition style ribeye steaks for us.
We were also joined by Officer Arik Matson and his family. Arik was greeted by his HHO family & members of the Todd County Sheriff’s Dept. Smokestack BBQ Supply of Brainerd, MN presented Arik & his wife with a new PK grill and some supplies to have some awesome bbq’s this summer.
Everyone left with full bellies, new friendships and an abundance of knowledge to make them the envy of the block when they step behind the grill this summer
A special thank you to all of the folks who donated their time and efforts to make this event possible but and extra special thank you to Borgy the BBQ Butcher, the Eagle Bend Volunteer Fire Dept., and City Government City of Eagle Bend for your hardwork and dedication to HHO. We are extremely grateful.
