Cooking with Stump Tops the Field in Tennille

Cooking with Stump Tops the Field in Tennille

STUMP

When Walter “Stump” McDowell posed for the GBA camera flexing his muscles on Friday afternoon, it was a sign of things to come.  The Cooking with Stump team of “Stump” and Tab “Mama Stump” McDowell notched a perfect score of 600 in the preliminary round of the Ribs category.  They followed up with a near perfect entry in the Ribs Finals to capture the Grand Championship at the 7th Annual Tennille BBQ Blast.   Full results of the contest are below

The Georgia Barbecue Association (GBA) has been honored to be a part of one the great small town festivals in the state for the past three years.  Huge crowds filled the streets of Tennille Friday and Saturday to enjoy great food, good music and crafts vendors.  The GBA thanks the Tennille Downtown Development Authority, the Tennille Fire Department and everyone associated with the contest for their hospitality.
