Smokin’ 42 Dominates at Smoke on the Lake

Smokin’ 42 Dominates at Smoke on the Lake

 

The “Black Train” made the long trip from Tifton to Acworth worthwhile by dominating the field at Smoke on the Lake at Cauble Park on Lake Acworth.  The team turned the GBA “hat trick” by making finals in all three categories.  They capped off the strong run in the preliminary rounds with a perfect 600 score in Ribs.  It was, however, their Pork Loin entry that had the highest score in the finals rounds for the Grand Championship win.

Sauced Hogs Smoke Shack, who is trying to hold off the hard charging Smokin’ 42 BBQ team in the GBA Team of the Year standings, also had a successful weekend by making finals in Pork Loin & Pulled Pork and took home the Reserve Championship. Sauced Hogs Smoke Shack holds a slim 21 point lead in the Team of the Year standings with only one contest remaining in the 2013-2014 season.

Smokin’ 42 BBQ’s final round score of 599.1 topped the Pork Loin category. Sauced Hogs Smoke Shack took the 2nd spot Trey Barnes of Butt Rubbin’ BBQ finished third. Bubba Grills took 4th place with 92 BBQ in 5th. Sixth thru 10th places went to Wild Smoke, Just Smoke N Around, Smoke Ring Aficionados, Plum Superior BBQ and Natural Born Smokers.

The win in Pulled Pork went to Sauced Hogs Smoke Shack with Bubba Grills taking 2nd place. Smokin 42 BBQ grabbed third place and Plum Superior BBQ grabbed 4th place. 92 BBQ edged out Butt Rubbin BBQ for 5th place by 0.3 of a point. Smokin’ J’s finished in 7th with Smokin’ HOTlanta in 8th place. Rounding out the top 10 was Just Smoke N Around BBQ and Smoke Ring Aficionados.

Smokin’ 42 BBQ followed up the prefect score in the Ribs preliminary round with the top score in the Ribs finals round. 92 BBQ was the runner up. Third place went to Plum Superior BBQ and 4th place went to Smokin’ J’s. Natural Born Smokers completed the top 5. Sixth place went to Bubba Grills with Sauced Hogs Smoke Shack just 0.6 of a point back in 7th place.  Just Smoke N Around, Smokin’ HOTlanta & Butt Rubbin; BBQ finished 8th thru 10th place respectively

The North Cobb Rotary Club also sponsored a GBA Cooking for Fun Division that drew 21 teams.  Swineholio won the Grand Champion award and East Coast BBQ was named the Reserve Champion.

Holy Smokers NS took 3rd place with Smokin’ Z BBQ in 4th and Smokin’ Snowballs in 5th place.  Smokin’ Z BBQ finished on top in Pulled Pork. Swineholio was the runner up. Third thru 5th places went to East Coast BBQ, Big Blue BBQ and Nice Rack BBQ. The winner in the Ribs category was Smokin’ Jackets. CJ BBQ grabbed 2nd place and Swineholio grabbed third. East Coast BBQ and Grills Gone Wild completed the top five. 

The North Cobb Rotary Club did an outstanding job in spite of rain off and on throughout the weekend. Even with the rain washing out the Firday nite concert and fireworks, the Acworth community still turned out to support the event & the People’s Choice contests generated over $5,000 for charity.

The Georgia Barbecue Association will wind up the 2013-2014 competition season in Dallas, GA with the Paulding Co. Stars & Stripes BBQ Cook Off & Festival on June 20-21.
