A Near Perfect Day for Rescue Smokers

A Near Perfect Day for Rescue Smokers

The 2015-2016 competition season for the Georgia Barbecue Association (GBA) got off to a unbelievable start at the Doc Holiday BBQ & Blues Festival in downtown Griffin.  On the Pro competiton, 39 of the top teams in the state turned out to try and grab the early lead in the Team of the Year competition as Double Points were on the line.  There were also 5 Cooking for Fun division teams.  The contest also featured Friday ancillaries in Sauce, Wings & Dessert.  There was also a special Saturday Brisket Shootout competition.
