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.

Jack’s Old South Edges Out Sauced Hogs Smoke Shack in Hawkinsville

Jack’s Old South Edges Out Sauced Hogs Smoke Shack in Hawkinsville

Grand Champions - Jack's Old South

Grand Champions – Jack’s Old South

Some of the top names in the world of competition BBQ turned out for the Hawkinsville Harvest Festival Pigs & Produce BBQ Cook Off, but the regulars on the Georgia Barbecue Association circuit were up for the challenge.  When the smoke settled, the Grand Championship had to be decided by a coin toss.  Jack’s Old South scored a near perfect 599.1 in the Pork Loin finals.  That was matched by Sauced Hogs Smoke Shack’s final Rib entry.  The GBA officials compared the scores thru the tie breaker procedure and the two teams matched up exactly.  That left it up to a coin toss and the winningest man in BBQ walked last once again.       

Myron Mixon actually got his winning ways started in Hawkinsville.  In 1996, Hawkinsville hosted a Memphis in May BBQ contest & Mixon won his very first Grand Championship at that event.
