This web page was created to answer a long term, well know, need.
There has been a need for a complete listing of Team Names that
compete in contests.
There has also be a big problem for new people who wanted to
compete in contest and had to go through the process of creating a
Team Name that no one else had been using. Many disputes have
arisen simply because these new team selected a Team Name that they
thought was original. Later, they found to everyone's dismay
that this name had been used by another team for many years.
Now we will have a place where team names can be verified and
people starting new barbeque teams can check out team names that are
being used by someone else.
They then can select a Team Name they can be proud of without
disputes. It is very important that everyone submit their BBQ
Team Names to the database. All the information
you submit will be sent to Ray Basso. Ray has been one of the
pioneers of barbecue on the Internet. He has a good reputation
and you have Ray's assurance that he will take very good care of the
information is closely controlled. At the present time only
Ray Basso and Ken Johnson have access to the database and its
information. Ken is the person who originally started
compiling the list and he turned the original list to Ray who
created this web page and database.
