LawDawg BBQ Returns to Action & Walks Last
It had been almost a year since Kerry Sparks and LawDawg BBQ last entered a Georgia Barbecue Association competition. Smokin Pork N Butts in Jackson, GA was where the team returned to the pit wars and they proved the long layoff didn’t effect their skills. LawDawg BBQ won the Pork Loin category & edged out Pulled Pork winner Bubba Grills and Rib winner Rescue Smokers the last call and the Grand Championship.
Robby Royal continued to dominate the circuit by making finals in both Loin and Ribs along with a 4th place finish in Pulled Pork. The strong overall cook gave the Sycamore, GA team the Reserve Grand Championship.
LawDawg BBQ took top honors in Loin with Rescue Smokers as the runner-up. Fletcher’s Finest advanced to finals on the strength of a perfect 600 score in the preliminary round and finished third. In 4th place was We Want Que and in 5th place was Johnson Boys BBQ. Screaming Eagle BBQ took 6th place, BCD took 7th place and Old Henry’s BBQ took 8th place. Quenut BBQ claimed 9th place and Southern Hogs was tenth.
Bubba Grills topped the Pulled Pork category. Larry Cavendar & Screaming Eagle BBQ, a former Cooking for Fun division team, took 2nd place. Cavendar posted a perfect 600 score in the preliminary round, Hootie Q took 3rd place. Fourth place went to Rescue Smokers with Southern Hogs taking 5th place. Brown Owl BBQ, in their first competition, walked in 6th and Smoke Shack walked in 7th place. LawDawg BBQ, 92 BBQ and We Want Que finished 8th thru 10th respecitively.
In Ribs, three teams tied for 2nd place in the preliminary round. This meant the team losing the tiebreaker would miss the finals, Johnson Boys BBQ came up short on the tiebreaker finshed in 4th place. Rescue Smokers won the category, 92 BBQ came in second and had the third perfect 600 score in the preliminary rounds. Fletcher’s Finest came in third. Real South BBQ got the 5th place call.
