A Near Perfect Day for Rescue Smokers

A Near Perfect Day for Rescue Smokers

The 2015-2016 competition season for the Georgia Barbecue Association (GBA) got off to a unbelievable start at the Doc Holiday BBQ & Blues Festival in downtown Griffin.  On the Pro competiton, 39 of the top teams in the state turned out to try and grab the early lead in the Team of the Year competition as Double Points were on the line.  There were also 5 Cooking for Fun division teams.  The contest also featured Friday ancillaries in Sauce, Wings & Dessert.  There was also a special Saturday Brisket Shootout competition.

The level of competition was on display right off the bat in Pork Loin as three teams — Bubba Grills, Dixie Q & Rescue Smokers — each tallied a perfect 600 score in the preliminary round.  Smokin’ 42 BBQ missed the 4th perfect score in Loin by just 0.3 of a point.  Rescue Smokers pulled their second 600 score of the day in the Pulled Pork preliminary round.

Breaking ties with perfect scores often comes down to the dreaded coin toss.  In the GBA, however, the top three teams in each category advance to the Finals rounds where they prepare another turn in box to be scored by a select panel of Finals judges.  So, the three teams with perfect scores go to settle it with a head to head to head matchup.

Rick Godfrey of Dixie Q got the top score in the Loin finals round to win the category. Rescue Smokers took second place with Bubba Grills taking third.  Smokin’ 42 BBQ came in 4th place. Johnson Boys BBQ, in their first GBA contest, finished 5th with Dobey Q finishing sixth. Forget Me Not BBQ took 7th place, Daddy-O’s BBQ took 8th, 92 BBQ took 9th and Fiddlers BBQ took 10th place.

Rescue Smokers had the top finals round Pulled Pork score for the win. Johnson Boys BBQ was the runner-up with Southern Hogs in 3rd place. Bubba Grills grabbed 4th place followed by CaJenn BBQ in 5th and Rub My Butt in 6th place. Seventh place went to We Want Que and 8th place went to Dixie Q.  Smokin 42 BBQ & The BBQ Ninja finished 9th & 10th respectively.
