CALIBER’S Holy Smoke Men’s Fall Event:
Guys – do you like barbecue?  Do you like the smell of wood smoke in the AM in the Fall?  Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a competition barbecue cook?  Do you like hanging out with other guys and eating barbecue from a competition barbecuer?

Well, we have a treat for you.  On Saturday, October 27, at 10:30AM at The Venue, Custer Road’s own Mark Orland of Westside BBQ will be sharing what it’s like to be a competition barbecue cook.  Mark and his family have been members of Custer Road for over 20 years and he’s translated his love of barbecue into competitions where he has been competing for 6 years in the International BBQ Cookers Association in Texas.  

Come to learn about:

  • The BBQ Competition Process
  • Preparation of different cuts of meat
  • Tips and tricks for your smoking
  • Recipes and other processes you can use at home

Afterward, Mark will be serving up a barbecue lunch during which we will be holding the “Holy Smoke Men’s Talk” where you will hear some testimonials from other Custer Roads’ men on their faith journey in a Ted Talk format.  This is a great opportunity to hear from other guys at church with their own journeys – for Men, by Men.       CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR THIS EVENT!
