This past weekend I judged an MBN contest in Gainesville, GA called the Brenau BBQ Championship. It was a great little contest for anyone interested in competing in it next year, I highly recommend it. I am even considering it myself for next year.
The campus was nice, the people were friendly and the contest was small… but it still paid really big. The total pay-out was over $12,000 total with Grand winning $4,000. Not bad for a weekend’s BBQ.
Jack’s Old South was there as well as Yazoo Delta Q and several other great teams. Yazoo won Grand… they are on a streak right now.
If you haven’t judged a BBQ contest, then I highly recommend it – even if you are just a backyard BBQ’er, it will give you a great look at how competition BBQ really tastes… and I promise you will learn something.
I did see a couple of cool smokers while we were there – of course, they are unpractical as hell… but still cool…
The team that had these smokers was Tuff Dog Grillers, but I couldn’t find any website for them.
