It was a tough weekend for Smokin J’s Barbecue in Canton at the BBQ & Brews Festival.
The weekend started off great! Traditionally, BBQ & Brews gives away a gift basket to the team who turns in their competition application first.
For the THIRD TIME – IT WAS US!
Filled with t-shirts, hats, pig regalia and Reformation Beer – we appreciated being recognized.
We are always excited about participating in these north Georgia events, so we get our applications in, as soon as we see them appear on the GBA schedule.
Dale Wilson, owner of Pirate 50 Custom Artwork and Trophies (and creator of some of the best GBA trophies) surprised BBQ & Brews’ Gary Lamb and Kristen Cash-Raines with their own trophy replicas.
The weather was beautiful, but our meat did not satisfy the judges.
Finishing in the middle of the pack, we were hoping for better results.
- 12th in Loin
- 20th in Pork
- 17th in Ribs
- 15th Overall
We are finally getting used to our Stump Stretch Smoker, Abby II and expect to improve with experience.
We want to thank those who came out to cheer us on…
Sponsor – D.C. Webster
Stump Smokers owner – Thad Estes
and first time visitor – Bill Webster
And we need to thank our sponsors…
Our next competition is quickly approaching. We will be at our favorite barbecue competition cook site location, in all of the GBA – Towns Bluff RV Park & Heritage Center on the Altamaha River.
Food, craft vendors, fun for the kids and of course, the smell of barbecue will be happening all day Saturday, May 5th.
Hope to see you there!
