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.

Rescue Smokers had the top finals round Pulled Pork score for the win. Johnson Boys BBQ was the runner-up with Southern Hogs in 3rd place. Bubba Grills grabbed 4th place followed by CaJenn BBQ in 5th and Rub My Butt in 6th place. Seventh place went to We Want Que and 8th place went to Dixie Q.  Smokin 42 BBQ & The BBQ Ninja finished 9th & 10th respectively.

Fiddler’s BBQ Breaks Thru at Smoke on the Lake

Fiddler’s BBQ Breaks Thru at Smoke on the Lake

A few weeks ago at Jackson, Fiddler’s BBQ made finals in all three categories and took first in Loin & Pulled Pork.  However, Bubba Grills’ Rib entry denied Harvey & Shirley Wills the last call.  At Smoke on the Lake at Acworth, Fiddler’s only made finals in Pulled Pork, but the entry was stong enough to bring home a score of 599 and the Grand Championship.

Brad Sweet of 92/Assassin Smokers scored a perfect 600 in both Loin and Ribs in the preliminary rounds to record the highest cumulative score for the contest and capture the Reserve Championship. It was the first time a single team has received perfect scores in two different categories in the same contest.  Bubba Grills did hit the 600 mark in both the preliminaries and finals in Ribs at Gordon in 2012.
