Two in a Row for 92 BBQ/Assassin Smokers

Brad Sweet has partnered up with Jeff Conley of Assassin Smokers and it looks like an unbeatable combination at the start of the Georgia Barbecue Association’s 2014-2015 season. 92 BBQ/Assassin Smokers made the finals in all three categories for the second straight contest at the Grande Creek Pig Jam.  The contest is held at a great venue —  the Georgia Sports Arena in Swainsboro, GA. The team’s Loin entry in the finals was the top scoring box in the round to win a second straight Grand Championship.
