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.

The level of competition was on display right off the bat in Pork Loin as three teams — Bubba Grills, Dixie Q & Rescue Smokers — each tallied a perfect 600 score in the preliminary round.  Smokin’ 42 BBQ missed the 4th perfect score in Loin by just 0.3 of a point.  Rescue Smokers pulled their second 600 score of the day in the Pulled Pork preliminary round.

Breaking ties with perfect scores often comes down to the dreaded coin toss.  In the GBA, however, the top three teams in each category advance to the Finals rounds where they prepare another turn in box to be scored by a select panel of Finals judges.  So, the three teams with perfect scores go to settle it with a head to head to head matchup.

Rick Godfrey of Dixie Q got the top score in the Loin finals round to win the category. Rescue Smokers took second place with Bubba Grills taking third.  Smokin’ 42 BBQ came in 4th place. Johnson Boys BBQ, in their first GBA contest, finished 5th with Dobey Q finishing sixth. Forget Me Not BBQ took 7th place, Daddy-O’s BBQ took 8th, 92 BBQ took 9th and Fiddlers BBQ took 10th place.

Bubba Grills grabbed 4th place followed by CaJenn BBQ in 5th and Rub My Butt in 6th place.

92 BBQ/Assassin Smokers Takes Grand at Bikes, Blues & BBQ

Douglas, GA has a storied history in the world of competition BBQ.  The city has joined forces with the Georgia Barbecue Association (GBA) the past two years to bring professional competition BBQ back to the city. The City of Douglas pulled out all stops to put on a great show for the 2nd annual Bikes, Blues & BBQ Festival.

Brad Sweet of 92 BBQ/Assassin Smokers got the final call of the day as Grand Champion. It was not easy however as his Loin Finals entry scored just one tenth of a point more than David Hair & Dobey Q’s Pulled Pork Finals entiry.

Howard Harris and Jeff Schramm, aka H & J Cooking Team, made finals in both Pulled Pork and Ribs in addition to a 10th place finish Loin.  This consistency over the preliminary rounds captured the Reserve Grand Champion.

Stump Smokers Hits Trifecta at Hawkinsville Smokin’ the Track

The Hawkinsville Harness Racing Festival hosted the Georgia Barbecue Association and Smokin’ the Track BBQ competition.  When the dust settled from a day of harness racing on the track; Stump Smokers, Tab & Walter “Stump” McDowell,  hit the Trifecta by winning all three categories.  This left no doubt that the team would also win the Grand Championship.  This was only the third time in GBA history that one team made a clean sweep of all the top awards.
