BIG Members are welcome to attend our next BBQ contest to be held in Wynne, AR at the Wynne FarmFest event.
We're looking to sponsor Jim Quessenberry's Arkansas Trav'ler Cooking Team as they return to Memphis in May for the first time in 20 years.
Jim Quessenberry and his band of outlaws were pioneers in the Memphis in May World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest cooking from the 2nd annual contest to the 17th. They took many place wins and were even invited to compete for the coveted Irish Cup contest in Lisdoonvarna, Ireland to take top honors overall in 1985 and 1987.
Once pioneers in the field, the team is looking to become the first 100% Bitcoin funded competition cooking team and would be backed by the Bitcoin Investment Group.

I have issued a new bitcoin address for anyone looking to sponsor the team with Bitcoin.
Sponsorship opportunities are being discussed, but for now a $5,000 target would make things very comfortable for us to have a great 2 day party in my childhood hometown. This would include setup of infrastructure, entry fees, charcoal, meat, and other necessities as well as tables, chairs, etc...
Interested parties can PM Lee Quessenberry for travel and other questions.
