Jack’s New South is Perfection at Plains Pig Pickin’

Plains Pig Pickin’ 2012 Grand Champions – Jack’s New South

The heat index reached record levels at the Plains Pig Pickin’ 2012, but that didn’t seem to bother Micheal Mixon, Kyle Brooks and Andy Speight of Jack’s New South. They recorded a perfect score of 600 in the Ribs Finals to claim their first Grand Championship.  Holy Smokers rode a second place finish in Ribs, 7th place in Pulled Pork and 9th place in Loin to take the Reserve Grand Championship.
