GBA State Champions – Holy Smokes

The largest field of the year, 39 teams, gathered in Milledgeville for the Deep Roots Festival and the Georgia Barbecue Association (GBA) State Championships.   The GBA State Championship is sponsored by Stump’s Smokers who present the State Champion with a $2,500 bonus on top of their Grand Championship winnings. Gary & Dionne Lanton of Holy Smokes scored a perfect 600 score in the Pulled Pork preliminary round, but it was their near perfect (599.7) score in the Loin Finals that earned them the Grand Champion and GBA State Champion titles.
