Back to Back Grands for 29 Barbeque

Back to Back Grands for 29 Barbeque

The Georgia Barbecue Association (GBA) plowed into the Durhamtown Off Road Park near Union Point for the Durhamtown Spring Jam & BBQ Cook-off.  While the slick red clay mud was a delight for the 4 Wheelers & Dirt Bikers, it presented some challenges to the Pitmasters.  The GBA cooks were up for the conditions & turned in some outstanding ‘Que  The competition was close as 16 teams vied for the final calls.  The competition was so tight that the GBA reps had to go to break a tie for the Grand Championship.

In the Finals, 29 Barbeque’s Pulled Pork box & Dobey Q’s Loin box both tallied a score of 597 from the final’s judges.  The GBA motto is “It’s All About the Taste” and the Taste criteria is the first level in the tiebreaker system.  29 Barbeque’s scored 0.04 higher in the Taste criteria than Dobey Q to win the Grand Championship.
