Jack’s Old South Edges Out Sauced Hogs Smoke Shack in Hawkinsville

Jack’s Old South Edges Out Sauced Hogs Smoke Shack in Hawkinsville

Grand Champions - Jack's Old South

Grand Champions – Jack’s Old South

Some of the top names in the world of competition BBQ turned out for the Hawkinsville Harvest Festival Pigs & Produce BBQ Cook Off, but the regulars on the Georgia Barbecue Association circuit were up for the challenge.  When the smoke settled, the Grand Championship had to be decided by a coin toss.  Jack’s Old South scored a near perfect 599.1 in the Pork Loin finals.  That was matched by Sauced Hogs Smoke Shack’s final Rib entry.  The GBA officials compared the scores thru the tie breaker procedure and the two teams matched up exactly.  That left it up to a coin toss and the winningest man in BBQ walked last once again.       

Myron Mixon actually got his winning ways started in Hawkinsville.  In 1996, Hawkinsville hosted a Memphis in May BBQ contest & Mixon won his very first Grand Championship at that event.
