The City of Douglas really rolled out the red carpet for the GBA’s cook teams, judges and officials.  The plans were in place for two days of great Blues music, motorcycle shows & games, a vintage car show & about 75 food & craft vendors.  Unfortunately, the weather forced cancellation of most of the events. Still, despite the weather challenges, the festival organizers held a very successful contest.

 

 

Lonnie Smith & his Bubba Grills team from Haddock, GA had the highest scoring entry of the finals round. His Ribs scored a 597.9 to earn the Grand Championship.  G.A.S. Passers of Hazlehurst, finaled in Ribs along with a fourth place in Pulled Pork and sixth place in Pork Loin to win the Reserve Grand Championship.

 

In Pork Loin, Bubba Grills topped the field in the category. Douglas, GA’s Bethel Smokers took second place. Smoking 42 BBQ claimed third place.  Mojo Smokehouse finished fourth with H & J Cooking Crew finishing in fifth. Sixth through 10th places went to:  G, A.S. Passers;  Dirt Road Smokers; Drive By Smokers; Smokin-AJ’s & Ricketson Construction.

 

 

 

DSCF2566 (800x556)Harvey & Shirley Willis of Fiddler’s BBQ won the Pulled Pork Category with Bethel Smokers once again taking second place. Another Douglas team, Ricketson Construction claimed third place. G.A.S. Passers took fourth.  Only 1.6 points separated 5th through 10th places. A tie for fifth place went to the fifth tiebreaker before Triple Threat Smokers gained an edge over TC’s BBQ. Rounding out the top 10 were: Bubba Grills, Smokin AJ’s, B-Queb’d; and Smokin 42 BBQ. Hard Rock Hill BBQ missed the top 10 by just a half point.

 

Bubba Grill’s championship winning Rib box topped the category. G.A.S. Passers claimed second place.  Third place went to Loud Pipe Grillers. 92 BBQ took fourth with Smokin’ 42 BBQ in fifth place.  TC’s BBQ; Lightning Strike BBQ; Hungry Hog BBQ; Mojo Smoke House and Hurricane Cookers finished 6th through 10th places respectively

The Georgia Barbecue Association would like to thank the City of Douglas, organizing staff and the multitude of volunteers for their hospitality and a great contest.  All the GBA teams & judges are looking forward to returning in 2015.

Lonnie Smith, another founding member of the GBA, and his Bubba Grills team won the first A.K. Saville Team of the Year Award.  During the 2012-2013 contest season, Bubba Grills won 3 Grand Championship and 4 Reserve Grand Championships. The team took first place honors in Pork Loin once, Pulled Pork twice and an amazing 6 times in Ribs.

Coming in second place in the point standings was Sauced Hogs Smoke Shack. Since Bubba Grills, the grill manufacturer, was the sponsor for the Team of the Year contest, Lonnie Smith passed the Bubba Grills smoker down to the runner-up for their strong showing throughout the year.
