I am nominating Rob Marion for a Smoky Angel Award. Rob has a competition team called "2 Worthless Nuts". Rob received an entry into this year's Jack Daniels Invitational through the draw.
Robs works for an independent agency that counsels soldiers and their families on military life and deployment issues. A few days after the draw, Rob learned he was going to have to withdraw from The Jack because he had troops returning from Afghanistan that he had worked with prior to their deployment. There was never a question in Rob's mind where had had to be this past weekend. He had to be with "his" military families. He gave up one of the highest honors and most sought after opportunities in the Competitive BBQ world to serve a higher purpose. Not only did he pass on the Jack Daniels opportunity, but he took the time to deliver his own pit to a good friend so he could use Rob's pit while he cooked at The Jack. For these reasons, and the great work he does, I am nominating Rob Marion for a Smoky Angel Award. Thank you Rob.
