You may think you know everything there is to know about charcoal, but do you? Test your knowledge, or come learn something new as Joey discusses 'what charcoal is and where does it comes from.' Plus, he will talk about production, quality and availabilty in the US and all over the world. What makes charcoal special? Well, the only way to find out is to hear it first hand.

SDG Food Truck/Trailer Panel
Nick Boyce, Ozzie Valentin | Business | Outside Class
This class is the first of its kind. With the popularity of food trucks on the rise, many have questions. SDG Trailers will be hosting this deep dive into what is needed and required to start and maintain a food truck/trailer business. Not only will they discuss tips and tricks from those who operate their own food trucks, but also from the manufacturing side. Like: What is a must have? What size do I need? What areas do I need to park? Do I need permits? And so much more.
Before the class, for Monday's lunch, we will support some local food trucks as we invite them to come serve NBBQA attendees. This will give you a chance to look at different trucks; see types of menus, window set ups, decor and so much more. Write questions ahead of time and bring them to the class.
Lunch is on your own, but we encourage all attendees to visit the food trucks for some Texas, BBQ. We will post more details as they unfold.
