FireBoard at 2022 Scheels’ Academy
What does one do when the boss (Ted) asks you to take a road trip to Fargo, ND to be a Brand Ambassador at the annual Scheels BBQ, Hunting and Shooting Academy? And what does one do if it happens to be your 33rd Wedding Anniversary weekend? Well, one (that’s me) invites the wife (Dean) for a road trip (which we love!) to Fargo, corporate headquarters of Scheels! We loaded up Ted’s pickup with FireBoard product and some presentation equipment and made the 9 hour trek directly north.
The presentation day started with the Scheels Associates teaming up with nationally known BBQ Chefs in a friendly BBQ competition! Brisket was on the menu. That means an early start for a long day in the smoker! So, 6:00AM came early for most, but, they learned from the best, including Megan Day from FireBoard sponsored team Burnt Finger BBQ.
The teams developed a cook plan, trimmed the meat, started up the smokers to let the smoke do it’s job!
The day concluded with the BBQ Teams reconvening to learn about preparing the championship BBQ boxes for judging. All teams made the turn-in time and the scoring was left for the judges. At the end of the day, Megan Day’s Team won 3rd place!
And a great weekend with the wife as well! Thanks Ted!
