Smokin 42 BBQ Rules at Three Rivers Festival

After battling the elements over the past few contests, the teams of the Georgia Barbecue Association (GBA) found picture perfect weather for the Three Rivers Festival at Towns Bluff Park.  The teams responded by turning in outstanding BBQ.  A common theme among the judges was how tough it was to pick a favorite among so many great entries.  In the end, it was the Finals round Pulled Pork entry turned in by Smokin’ 42 BBQ of Tifton that got the last call of the day as Grand Champion.
