A new wave of teams swept through The Statesboro Music Festival’s Battle Of The BoroQue!  The GBA’s first contest in Statesboro, Georgia turned out to be a real home field advantage for Bubba Hunt and the Butts-N-Brews BBQ team.

The BoroQue was Butts-N-Brews first ever sanctioned competition and they walked away with the Grand Championship punching their ticket to Las Vegas to represent the GBA, Statesboro and the Battle of the BoroQue!  TC’s BBQ turned in a solid day across the board winning the Reserve Championship.

Nineteen teams smoked and served great product to appreciative judges. The weekend weather that has pounded Georgia over the past few weeks broke and we were blessed with a fabulous weekend for a cook-off.  Everyone heard the blues at the Music Festival but no one had the blues!

GBA icons Bubba Grills, Bethel Smokers and Sauced Hog Smoke Shack were joined by five teams who made their first appearances as GBA finalists.

Lee Sweats and Sweats BBQ finaled in Ribs and Pork Loin.
