Smokin’ 42 BBQ Makes It Two In A Row at Brenau!

Submitted by Greg Hoyt

The hottest team in the GBA is Smokin’ 42 BBQ.   Chad Brooks and Chris O’Neal traveled  north of  Atlanta for the second time in 2 weeks and drove home with the Grand Championship of the Brenau Barbecue Championship!  They say the first one is the hardest but once Smokin’ 42 got it under their belt thy went right back to the trough and gobbled up their second  Grand Championship at the next GBA competition at Brenau.

The GBA was invited to co-sanction the Brenau Barbecue Championship with Memphis Barbecue Network.  The GBA showed out in Brenau –  30 GBA Teams cooked all three categories. Two Memphis teams snuck over to cook  a category or two on the GBA side.  Six GBA stalwarts  made the trip to Breanau.  Dixie Que, Jethro’s Cooking Crew, Smoke Shack BBQ, AnarQue , Smokin’ 42 BBQ and Smokin’ AJ’s BBQ all made the trek to Gainesville.  They were joined by twenty four other teams that were that have cooked from zero to three GBA sanctioned events in the past.

Two teams, Smokey Butts and Sauced Hog Smoke Shack set the tone early in the day with another GBA first. Both teams scored a perfect 600 in Loin.  We’ve never had 600’s in the same category on the same day before.  Anarque joined them on the finals table.  Smokey Butts won the Loin category followed by Anarque and Sauced Hog Smoke Shack finishing third.  Dixie Q missed their best shot at a GBA final being four tenths of a point behind and finishing fourth in GBA Loin.

Pulled pork was the opportunity for new teams to show what they could do.  Two of the top four money spots belonged to teams that had not cooked in a GBA Sanctioned event before.   Sauced Hog Smoke Shack edged out Ninja Pigs for first place in Pulled Pork.  Smoke Shack BBQ came in third in pulled pork and Rick’s Smok’n Pig  finished fourth.  In the preliminaries Smoke Shack and Sauced Hogs Smoke Shack had tied in the preliminaries with nearly perfect scores of 599.4.  In the preliminary round. In the finals Ninja Pig passed Smoke Shack for second place.
