February 5th, 2001 is when HomeBBQ.com was officially launched. This website is 9 years old today, although this is not the original version of HomeBBQ.com. Over the years, this website has gone through many changes, has seen more than 3,000,000 unique visitors, and more than 8000 members. Our goal has always been to help those that want to learn how to barbecue, and I think we have done that. I want to thank those that have helped me through the years.
I also want to update everyone on what has been going on with us. Over the last couple of months, I have been getting several emails and phone calls inquiring about my health, and why we have not been seen at competitions. As many know we did spend some time in the hospital in early December, all is well now and I want to thank the FBA for their get well wishes, and many of you who contacted me personally. Most of what put me in the hospital was due to stress, so we rectified that, I hope.
Which leads us to why we have not been seen competing in several months. We have been competing for many years now, competing in as many as 36 competitions a year, we needed a break! We are taking a brief hiatus, and expect to be back out competing again later this year, or early next year. What we are focused on right now is getting HomeBBQ.com product distributed, so if there is somewhere that you think should be carrying our product, then please help us get connected.
We have also launched another new business, many of you know that I have been working in the IT world for several years, and many of those years has been spent on web design and application development. Our new business is called Bevington IT Services, and the website is www.bevington.biz . We handle just about anything in IT, with a focus on Web Site Design. So if anyone has a need there please visit our website and give us a call, we will be happy to help you.
