Smokin’ 42 BBQ Earns First Grand Championship at Smoke on the Lake

Smokin’ 42 BBQ Earns First Grand Championship at Smoke on the Lake

It’s  a long haul up I-75 from Tifton to Acworth. The trip back down the interstate after the Smoke on the Lake contest didn’t seem quite as long for Smokin’ 42 BBQ with their first Grand Championship trophy riding shotgun.  However, the win didn’t come easy the Men in Black.  For the first time in GBA history there was a three way tie for Grand Champion.  Bubba Grills won the Pork Loin category;  Rub Shakers Que won Pullled Pork and Smokin’ 42 BBQ was tops in Ribs all with a score in the final round of 599.1.  The contest reps had to go thru eight levels of the tiebreaker system before Smokin’ 42 BBQ edged out the other two teams.

Bubba Grills continued his strong run through the 2012-2013 contest season by making finals in both Loin and Ribs.  These scores helped the team accumulate the top total score in the preliminary rounds and win Reserve Grand Champion.

Rub Shakers Que, cooking in their first GBA contest, joined the GBA 600 club with a perfect 600 score in the Pulled Pork preliminary round. They followed up with the top score on the Pulled Pork finals table to take first place in the category. Smokin’ 42 BBQ took second place.  Two more first time GBA competitors, Smoke Ring Aficionados and Drums A’ Smokin’, finished third and fourth respecitively. Jason Adams of Anarque came in fifth.

Lonnie Smith, pitmaster of Bubba Grills, topped the field in Loin with Anarque in second and Jethro’s Cooking Crew in third. Smoke Ring Aficionados edged out Butt Rubbin’ BBQ for fourth place by 0.2 of a point.

Smokin’ 42 BBQ turned in the best Ribs of the day. Bubba Grills was runner-up and Sauced Hogs Smoke Shack took third place. But Rubbin’ BBQ and Rub Shakers Que rounded out the top five.

The GBA also held it’s first ever Cooking for Fun division at Smoke on the Lake.  The Cooking for Fun division is for teams who love to cook and want to get started in the GBA style of competitive BBQ.  Cooking for Fun contests have lower entry fees than a regular GBA contest and do not have a finals round.   The Fat Guys had the highest scoring box of the day with a 595.1 in Pulled Pork to take the Grand Championship.
