This was one tough weekend. With over 60 of the best MBN teams in the world, it was a battle to get on stage. The BBQ Rub. came through for us again! Boars Night Out won first in ribs and Grand Champions. So I want to give a big CONGRATS to those boys. Brown Chicken Brown Cow won first in shoulders. They are good friends of mine and brought some serious competition this weekend. If I couldn’t win first place, these are the guys I would want to take it from me. 10 Bones won first with their whole hog again… you just can’t beat these guys with their whole hog. They are one of the best teams cooking today and I gotta give them a big congrats too. So many great teams where out there this weekend and everyone was talking about how this contest is even tougher than Memphis In May. I gotta say… Harrah’s casino puts on a great contest. They really take care of the teams, they give out some BIG checks and it’s a lot of fun. I can’t wait until next year.

Not one team double or triple finaled. Ribs: – Boars Night Out – Tower Rock – Wild Boar Smokers Shoulders: – Killer Hogs – Brown Chicken Brown Cow – Yazoo Delta Q Whole Hog: – 10 Bones BBQ – Gwatney BBQ Team – Diamond D Smokers We had some great shoulders going into finals, and we were proud of making finals since it’s been a while for us cooking a MBN contest. And we ended up getting 3rd place. As much as I wanted that Grand… I can’t be disappointed with our showing this past weekend.
