Grand Champion – Bethel Smokers

 

 

The Georgia Barbecue Association traveled to Jekyll Island, GA for the first contest of 2014. The Brunswick Lions Club hosted the event & the Golden Isles turned out in record numberst. At one point Saturday, traffic was backed up for miles on the causeway leading to the beach front contest & festival site.

Mr Joe Wright, Pitmaster of Bethel Smokers, made finals in both Pork & Ribs, but it was his final round Pork entry that scored a 599 out of a possible 600 points that got the last call of the day. Inside sources tell us that the secret to the team’s success is all in the shoes.

Sauced Hogs Smoke Shack came to Jekyll Island short handed, but Clint & Mandy Britton were up to the challenge.  The husband & wife team made finals in Loin along with fifty place finishes in both Pork & Ribs to capture the Reserve Grand Championship.
