Bubba Grills Takes Grand at Smokin’ Pork N Butts

Bubba Grills Takes Grand at Smokin’ Pork N Butts

There are a couple of things you can count on at Smokin’ Pork N Butts in Jackson.  Great BBQ and Rain.  Mud boots were almost as essential as grills, charcoal & wood as steady rain pelted the event for most of the weekend.  In spite of the challenging conditions, the teams still made the judges work hard to determine who had the best BBQ of the day.

Fiddlers BBQ made finals in all three categories. Southern Hogs finaled in Loin & Pulled Pork. However, it was Bubba Grills Rib entry that recorded the top score in the final rounds to claim the Grand Championship.

 

Grand Champion - Bubba Grills

Harvery & Shirley Wills of Fiddlers BBQ, with an assist from Master Judge candidate Greg Sebastian, “Triple Finaled” and accumulated the most points in the preliminary rounds to win the Reserve Champion award.

Reserve Champion – Fiddlers BBQ

 

Pork Loin is always a difficult category, but the scorers had to go to the tiebreaker to determine the winner in the category. Both Fiddler’s BBQ and LawDawg BBQ scored 594.4 in the final round of Loin judging.  The GBA declares “Its All About the Taste” and the Taste scores are the first level in the tiebreaker.  Fiddler’s BBQ had the highest taste score & edged LawDawg for first place. LawDawg BBQ had a perfect 600 score in the preliminary Loin round. Southern Hogs grabbed third place.  Que the Musick took 4th place with Just Blowing Smoke taking fifth. 92 BBQ/Assassin Smokers took 6th place by winning the tiebreaker over Smokin J’s BBQ. Eighth place went to Bubba Grills; 9th place went to Smoke Shack BBQ and 10th went to Main Street BBQ.

In Pulled Pork, it was Fiddlers BBQ  once again taking top honors. Southern Hogs finished as runner-up with Que the Musick in third place.  Main Street BBQ got the 4th place call and Fletcher’s Finest got 5th place. Smokin the Good Stuff edged Real South BBQ for 6th place on the tiebreaker. Just Blowing Smoke also edged LawDawg BBQ in the tiebreaker for 8th place. Bubba Grills rounded out the top 10.

The Grand Championship winning Rib entry earned first place for Bubba Grills. Fiddlers BBQ completed their strong cook with the 2nd place award. Smokin the Good Stuff took 3rd place, but also had a perfect 600 score in the preliminary round. BCD (Boys Cooking Dangerously) came in 4th place. Hootie Q edged 29 BBQ by 0.1 of a point to take 5th place. Just Blowing Smoke captured 7th place and Smoke Shack BBQ captured 8th place.  92 BBQ/Assassin Smokers & Rub Shakers Que finished 9th & 10th respectively.

Once again Connie & Wayne Rosser of the Butt County Exchange Club did an outstanding job managing the contest in trying conditions.  The GBA heads to the Three Rivers Festival and Towns Bluff Park on the Altamaha River in Hazlehurst on May 1-2. The following week it will be Smoke on the Water on beautiful Lake Acworth. The month of May completes the water based trifecta with the 1st Annual White Oak Pastures BBQ Challenge on Lake Walter F George in Fort Gaines on May 22-23.
