    Following Smokin’ AJ’s in the Pork category was 5 O’clock Somewhere in second place. Cook’s Portable Smokehouse recorded a perfect score of 600 in the Pork preliminary round and took 3rd place in the finals. Rounding out the top five were D.W.’s Kountry Cookers and Budmiesters. This was the first GBA competition for Budmiesters.

    This is Cook’s Portable Smokehouse- When will the 600 club be updated. As I got a perfect 600 on Pulled Pork.

    Thanks a lot
