Pork Shoulder Butts,
 bone-in, smoked slowly for 15 hours overnight with Pecan and Oak on Ole Hickory Professional BBQ  Smokers.  The meat is so tender it falls off the bone.  Ready to be pulled or  sliced to enjoy on your plate, as finger-food,  or  on a on sandwich.  Or maybe just dip the burnt-ends into a heaping mound of BBQbyDan BBQ Sauce!
      
Our most popular and requested meat entrée.  The  BBQbyDan "signature" meat selection (along with Brisket)!

We're Looking for the
Best Barbecue Team in the USA
October 30 - November 1, 2014

www.SmokeOnTheWaterBBQ.com

The world's best grillers will be in Laughlin, Nevada at Don Laughlin's Riverside Resort on October 30 thru November 1, 2014 for the Sixth Annual $110,000 USA Barbecue Championship presented by Findlay Motor Company.

Considered the largest contest in the state with a guaranteed purse of $110,000 in cash and prizes, the USA Grand Champion will win a fully loaded, 2015 Chevrolet Camaro valued at over $50,000, which includes all fees and taxes paid. If the Camaro is not to your liking, Findlay Motor Company will have a sports utility vehicle, truck and car of equal value to choose from. We're also spreading the love by paying top 10 overall and through 20 places in all four categories.

The USA Barbecue Championship presented by Findlay Motor Company is held at the Riverside Resort surrounded by the beautiful mountains and nestled on the Colorado River.

  Twentynine Palms Marine Base

Cooking BBQ for 13,000-18,000 Marines & their dependants

  
< pictures & write-up from this event >
   

   
< pictures & write-up from this event >
 
Team BBQbyDan (Rick & Karen Streiff, Dan & Barbara Cannon) head out to Twentynine Palms Marine Base to provide support to the California BBQ Association (CBBQA) as well as many volunteers in providing a BBQ dinner to the Marines and their dependents at the Twentynine Palms Marine Base sports field.  We will all go out on Friday, arriving in the early afternoon to prep meats, setup smokers, and cook the traditional award winning BBQ faire that we all do so often.  All BBQ groups and volunteers are  contributing (at no charge) their time, efforts, equipment, and fuels.
Friday evening late afternoon and evening will be dedicated to unwrapping, trimming, and seasoning 350 full size Briskets.  That would be 4,662 pounds.  Yes, it takes a lot of brisket to feed 18,000 folks.  Briskets will come off the cookers early Saturday, go into warmers, then quartered and Buffalo Chopped, then into foil pans, and into the final warmers ready to serve for dinner.  Chicken, Hamburgers, and Hot Dogs will also be served.  This is the 5th year that Team BBQbyDan has had the privilege of being a part of this great event. 
 
Del King is one of the originators, catalysts, and unbroken link that keeps these events happening.  He keeps the Military involved, all the volunteers updated, events planned, and is ready on a moments notice to do an event like this anywhere.
