I get a couple of requests every year from tv shows wanting to come follow me at a contest for the weekend. They always have long lists of waivers, demands etc. but never offer anything in return. I got another one yesterday. As far as I am concerned they are an awful of
trouble and they want you to give up all your secrets on tv for no pay. The last few I have just told them that I do not do tv things but I have decided that in the future I will tell them that I would be happy to but there will be a fee involved. I think if everybody did this it would change their way of thinking. For some reason they think we bbq cooks like to work for free. I do not think any of the employees with the tv company would work for free and the tv station would not be doing it if they did not make money. Every body wants a piece of the pie and I think we bbq cooks should get ours too.
