Rescue Smokers Race to Win at Hawkinsville Smokin’ the Track

Rescue Smokers Race to Win at Hawkinsville Smokin’ the Track

The heavy rains & muddy conditions forced a shutdown of the harness racing at Hawkinsville Smokin’ the Track.  Most of the Georgia Barbecue Association’s (GBA) teams, however, were tucked in out of the weather under the shelter of the horse arena.  It came down to a photo finish as just two tenths of a point separated the top two entries of the day. Robby Royal & Rescue Smoker won the Grand Championship when his final round Rib entry scored a 599 out of a possible 600 to slip past Brad Sweet & 92 BBQ’s score of 598.8 in Pulled Pork.

92 BBQ made finals in both Loin & Pulled Pork and added a 6th place in Ribs to take the Reserve Grand Championship.

Jack’s Old South Tops Tough Field at Tifton Rhythm & Ribs

Jack’s Old South Tops Tough Field at Tifton Rhythm & Ribs

The City of Tifton really turns out for a weekend of music, fun & food at the Rhythm & Ribs Festival. The City’s new mayor said she ordered up perfect weather for the weekend & she really delivered.   Twenty two GBA teams and 24 backyard teams competed to win cash & the unique “Squeal-bert” trophies.

 

The field was tough as 9 of the top 10 teams in the GBA’s Team of the Year standings were on hand.  In addition, well known pitmasters like Myron Mixon of Jacks Old South & Raymond Poore of REAL-licious Q were competing in their first GBA events of the season.  The competition was tight. In fact, less than a point separated the three finalists for the Grand Championship.  It was Jack’s Old South edging out 92 BBQ & Rub Shakers Que for the last call of the day.

Grand Champion - Jack's Old South

Consistency across the three categories proved to be the key for Robby Royal of Rescue Smokers in winning the Reserved Grand Championship.  The team tallied a 594.8 in Loin (4th place); a 594.5 in Pulled Pork (4th place) and a 594.6 in Ribs (6th place) to accumulate the highest cumulative score in the preliminary rounds.

Holy Smokes Has The Wiggle & Twist To Win Johnson Co.

Holy Smokes Has The Wiggle & Twist To Win Johnson Co.

The first Johnson Co. Wiggle & Twist Festival included a Georgia Barbecue Association (GBA) competition.  The unique festival name pays tribute to the old Wrightsville & Tennille Railroad.  The old rail route had such a winding path that it picked up the nickname “Wiggle & Twist”.  The festival and contest were held at the Wrightsville American Legion Post along with the Johnson Co. Chamber of Commerce.  A large crowd turned to enjoy the sights & sounds of the BBQ competition; lots of vendors & great music.  Holy Smokes, Gary & Dion Lanton, from nearby Dublin won both the Pulled Pork & Rib categories to claim the Grand Championship.

Tifton’s Smokin’ 42 BBQ had a 599.7 preliminary score in Loin along with a 6th place in Pulled Pork and 7th place in Ribs to win the Reserve Grand Championship.

Georgia Boys claimed 7th place just ahead of Johnson Boys BBQ in 8th.  Ninth place went to Real South BBQ and Holy Smokes got the 10th place call.

The Pulled Pork finals was almost as close as the Loin finals.  Holy Smokes won the category by only 0.8 of a point over Real South BBQ.  Old Henry’s BBQ may have gotten the loudest ovation of the day with their 3rd place call.  The BBQ Ninja took 4th place; Georgia Boys took 5th and Smokin’ 42 BBQ took 6th place.  Southern Hogs edged Bubba Grills for 7th place by 0.3 of a point.  CaJenn Smokin’ Q and H & J Cooking Team finished 9th & 10th respectively.

A Grand Time in Fort Gaines for Dobey Q

A Grand Time in Fort Gaines for Dobey Q

The Fort Gaines 200 committee pulled out all stops for an amazing contest in the 1st Annual White Oak Pastures BBQ Challenge. It all started with a beautiful venue on the banks of the Chattahoochee River.  The Challenge stepped up a notch when White Oak Pastures presented the People’s Choice competitors with their pasture raised chickens for the contest.  Smoke over Bluffton won both the People’s Choice and the BBQ Queen’s choice with their pulled chicken

In the GBA competition,  David Hair & Dobey Q’s pulled pork finals entry edges out the rib box of 92 BBQ/Assassin Smokers by 0.6 of a point for the Grand Championship.  That was a testament of how competitive the contest as for the first time in anyone’s memory,  9 different teams made the finals round in the three GBA categories.
