Fiddler’s BBQ Breaks Thru at Smoke on the Lake
A few weeks ago at Jackson, Fiddler’s BBQ made finals in all three categories and took first in Loin & Pulled Pork. However, Bubba Grills’ Rib entry denied Harvey & Shirley Wills the last call. At Smoke on the Lake at Acworth, Fiddler’s only made finals in Pulled Pork, but the entry was stong enough to bring home a score of 599 and the Grand Championship.
Brad Sweet of 92/Assassin Smokers scored a perfect 600 in both Loin and Ribs in the preliminary rounds to record the highest cumulative score for the contest and capture the Reserve Championship. It was the first time a single team has received perfect scores in two different categories in the same contest. Bubba Grills did hit the 600 mark in both the preliminaries and finals in Ribs at Gordon in 2012.
In Pork Loin, Just Blowing Smoke won the final’s table with 92 BBQ/Assassin Smokers taking 2nd place and Smokin The Good Stuff taking third. Fourth place went to Fiddler’s BBQ;; 5th place went to We Want Que and 6th place went to Plum Superior BBQ. CJ’s BBQ took 7th place with Smart Ash BBQ taking eighth. Curley Que BBQ made 9th place and SmokeShack BBQ rounded out the top 10.

Plum Superior BBQ finished in 4th just ahead of 92 BBQ/Assassin Smokers in 5th place. Just Blowing Smoke walked for 6th place and Smoking the Good Stuff got the 7th place call. Eighth thru 10th places went to We Want Que, SmokeShack BBQ and Four Fathers BBQ Crew respectively.
Winning Ribs was 92 BBQ/Assassin Smokers. Plum Superior BBQ claimed 2nd place and Smoking Butts BBQ claimed third. Smokin the Good Stuff took 4th place.
