Grand Champion – Bubba Grills

The battle for Grand Champion at the first Paulding Co. Stars & Stripes BBQ Contest in Dallas, GA was just as heated as the summer afternoon, Bubba Grills’ Rib entry and Smokin’ 42 BBQ’s Loin entry both scored 596.2 points in the finals round. This forced the Grand Championship to be decided on a tiebreaker. It didn’t take long, however, as Bubba Grills won the first level tiebeaker to claim the Grand Championship.

Competing in their first GBA contest, Robin Bowles and the Just Blowing Smoke team made finals in Loin and Pulled Pork along with a fifth place finish in Ribs to take the Reserve Championship Award.
