A Grand Time in Fort Gaines for Dobey Q

A Grand Time in Fort Gaines for Dobey Q

The Fort Gaines 200 committee pulled out all stops for an amazing contest in the 1st Annual White Oak Pastures BBQ Challenge. It all started with a beautiful venue on the banks of the Chattahoochee River.  The Challenge stepped up a notch when White Oak Pastures presented the People’s Choice competitors with their pasture raised chickens for the contest.  Smoke over Bluffton won both the People’s Choice and the BBQ Queen’s choice with their pulled chicken

In the GBA competition,  David Hair & Dobey Q’s pulled pork finals entry edges out the rib box of 92 BBQ/Assassin Smokers by 0.6 of a point for the Grand Championship.  That was a testament of how competitive the contest as for the first time in anyone’s memory,  9 different teams made the finals round in the three GBA categories.
