Grande Creek Pig Jam • Swainsboro, Georgia • April 5-6, 2013 Special to BBQ Times

Nineteen teams gathered at the Georgia Sports Arena in Swainsboro, GA for the first Grande Creek PigJam. The teams & judges found the new venue to be an excellent site for a BBQ competition. The GBA family and members of the Swainsboro community were treated to a concert on Friday night by The LACS. Mr. Joe Wright of Bethel Smokers claimed first place in both Pulled Pork & Ribs to take home the Grand Championship. His finals Ribs score of 595.4 was 0.3 of

a point better than his finals Pulled Pork score to claim the top award of the day. Smokin’ AJ’s Pitmaster Buster Davis had a strong showing in all three categories to win the Reserve Grand Championship. Buster’s top 3 finals calls in Loin & Pulled Pork along with a 9th place finish in Ribs was the highest overall score in the preliminary round. Cookin’ took first place in the Pork Loin category just 0.6 of a point ahead of Butt Rubbin BBQ. Smokin AJs claimed third place with Budmeisters tak-

ing fourth. Sauce Hogs Smokeshack edged out Dirt Road Grillin for fifth place by 0.3 of a point.

What to do with all those competition leftovers...

Audrey Evans

Editor & Publisher

I haven’t ever figured out why this column is so hard for me to write. Well, OK maybe I have a little. I think that most of it comes from me writing the stories, covering the events and being at so many events. By the time this column comes across it seems like I have already written everything I can think of so I’ve gathered a few of my favorite recipes to share with you this month. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do., these are great for your leftover BBQ products after a competition.

Pulled Pork Enchilada Salad

2 corn or flour tortillas 8 ounces Mozzarella cheese, grated In a medium saucepan, 4 cups pulled pork 1 10-ounce can enchilada combine enchilada sauce, Coke, brown sugar and sauce Sriracha sauce. Cook over 10 ounces Coke, regular medium heat until reduced 2 tablespoons brown thickened enough to coat the sugar 1 teaspoon Sriracha back of a spoon. Remove from heat. Set aside ¼ cup sauce of sauce. Add pulled pork to 4 cups lettuce greens 1 cucumber, peeled and the remainder of the sauce and toss to coat the pulled diced 1 cup cherry tomatoes, pork. Assemble salad of lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, halved 1 14-ounce can black black beans and onion. Top with sauced pulled pork, beans, drained and rinsed then cheese. Drizzle each ½ red onion salad with a bit more sauce. 2 tablespoons canola oil

In a medium skillet, heat canola oil. One at a time, cook tortillas on both sides until lightly browned. Remove with tongs and allow to drain. Slice into strips and serve a few pieces alongside each salad. Smoked Chicken and Apple Salad Approximately 8 oz. smoked chicken, pulled or cubed 1 medium golden delicious apple, cored and sliced thinly 3 scallions, sliced 2-3 roasted red bell pepper segments, chopped 2 tbsp of your favorite Ital-

ian style salad dressing salt and pepper to taste a few romaine lettuce tips as both garnish or an addition to the salad. A few almonds or walnuts to top Place all ingredients except romaine in a large bowl. Toss gently to dress. Place 2 or 3 romaine tips on a serving plate. Mound 1/4 of the salad on the lettuce, arrange a few apple slices nicely on top. Serve immediately. Enjoy....and until next month, Keep Rubbin’ Those Butts!

CAN YOU BBQ? Be Careful It Can Be Fun

Dana Hillis

Pitmaster Big Papa’s Country Kitchen We have been running up and down the highways and roads of this wonderful country cooking competition BBQ anywhere we can get to. It is just incredible to me how many new teams we have met and how well these teams can cook! You used to pull into a competi-

tion and think yeah maybe there are 4 or 5 good teams that have a chance to win but lately those numbers have greatly increased. You have teams like Sweet Smoke Q, Gitchasome, Winks, Rooster Sunday, Swinos, Newmans, Matt Daddys, United Pork Smokers, Smokin Pink, Red Raymonds, Cedar Creek, BGE Pit Crew, Captain Jacks, Smokey Butts, Hick Town, E.T.s BBQ, I mean this list goes on. There are a lot of teams I did not mention these were just off the top of my head. Any one of these teams could be your next Grand Champion. We have had 11 competitions so far this year with 10 different Grand Champions. Wooley

Bully has only cooked 6 competitions and has won 2 and Swamp Boys seems like he wins every time he shows up. Hot Wachulas has been as consistent as anyone cooking and Team Unknown was hot until they did not buy pizza! Has anyone out there not heard about pizza mojo? If you happen to win a contest you better buy pizza or (if you believe in BBQ mojo) it could be a while before your good fortune comes back to you. I don’t want to bring up any teams or names but if you look back in BBQ history the teams that don’t

“For The Folks That Want A Little Smoke In Their Life”

feed the losers at least a slice or 2 of some heavenly pizza – after cooking BBQ all weekend and losing – pizza is a gift from above! Some other things you must do to keep the good mojo working is if you make a little wager like signing a dollar bill if you lose you better sign it! If you say to your buddy “if either of us wins grand or reserve we will jump in a lake” you better jump in even if it is really cold. If you are that guy that likes to guzzle down your friends cocktail during awards while he is not looking, you better not make bets after getting intoxicated. My good friend – I will not mention his name, but he wears a cowboy hat and pink, lost a bet that means he has to wear a cheerleaders outfit. Several were there to witness the wager and I know he will pay up soon. If you want to have some fun bring something pink to his trailer without him seeing you. He will think I did it and that gets to be a lot of fun. Someone left a large pink butterfly in his trailer and he swore it was me. He even took one of my shoes for NCIS, DNA, and witness analysis. I was

proven innocent by the way. There was a crime scene at my camp when I came back from the store in Thomaston and my whole camp was wrapped in crime scene tape and the outline of a body was drawn on the ground right out in front of my trailer. I did a little investigating and have not proven it yet but the shape of the outline on the ground looked just like Dorsey Odells body when he is curled up on the floor of his trailer after taking a butt whoopin from some of his teammates when he wont get up. I have watched this. I saw some pictures on line of some of the remodel work done to the Team Unknown trailer. I think they have come up with a way to carry all there grease home with them by mounting a grease barrel on top of their trailer. They installed a stool on top of the trailer for Dorsey to play guitar on while they travel. They had some cones, antennas and lots of cool additions. They are hard to keep up with. I had the chance to hang out with Garrett from Sweet Smoke and we had a lot of laughs. I have parked next to

Hot Wachulas several times lately and that is always a blast. He could be one of the funniest people I know. Get him, Wooley Bully,Team Unknown and Get Cha Somes Bob Williams close by and I guarantee Janet will be telling everyone to go to bed long after quiet time! We plan some of our trips to where we can stop in Live Oak and rest along the way. We pull into Damon and Ashley Wooleys place plug in , shower eat good and get up early to finish our trip wherever it may be. Not only is Damon a great competition team, he cooks up some perfect ten meals whenever we stop thru. This past weekend we stopped thru on the way to Dothan along with Sweet Smoke Q and Matt Wachula. We ate some fried corn and taters that were just awesome. On the way back home we were greeted with Ashleys favorite marinated steak, grilled asparagus with cheese sauce and a fantastic oreo desert. 5 star accommodations all the way. I hear Ashley is working on some work out and dance videos.

Are you ready for the ultimate “turn-in”?

Jeff Petkevicius Pit Master Give It to God

Hurry, quickly take a picture… As of this writing, Give it to God has the #2 rib in the country, the #9

Pork and #16 overall…. My Jesus is the best Pit-Master ever! Of course, most of you haven’t started cooking yet, so I’m working on the “quantity VS. quality” approach to getting into the top rankings for KCBS Team of the year ☺. I love everything about Professional BBQ competitions…including scraping chicken and building parsley boxes…ok, call me goofy! The fun for me starts on Sunday of Game week when I pull my brisket and start the preparation process. The awards, the trophies, the checks, the calls are all

great, but what grows on me are the developing relationships with very cool people. It shouldn’t be a surprise that people who love to cook are fun to hang around. It’s a very cool atmosphere where people leave home and journey to another part of the country to display their BBQ skills, share stories, share meals and spends some quiet time together with friends. It’s the servant, nurturing spirit of Jesus being reflected. Jesus Christ, Lord of Lords, King of Kings was a servant. He journeyed away from His home, fed people,

healed the sick, raised the dead and worked miracle after miracle to demonstrate God’s love for us all. You have to agree, Jesus spent some quality time with people throughout His ministry. Jesus came down from heaven to serve you and I. We’ve all heard that, but if you stop and think about it… WOW! The question I ask myself daily is… am I doing all I can to serve Him? It’s not a “have to” for me, it’s a “want to”. Just like my BBQ family that is growing and my love for them develops, so has my love for

God. I think of God as my Father in Heaven who has demonstrated how much He has loved me for years and years and I don’t want to disappoint Him. I have the saying on my BBQ trailer, “You’re counting on Jesus not paying attention?”. It’s my reminder to live my life pleasing my Lord with everything I do. It’s ALL about serving Jesus! For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not [use] liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. - Gal 5:13 NKJV “If anyone serves Me, let

him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him [My] Father will honor. - Jhn 12:26 NKJV Every one of us is headed for the ultimate “turn-in”. Just like the atomic clock at competitions, we are well aware that it’s coming, we’ve been given grace time to get it right, but in the end, when the clock is folded down on the table…. judgment is made. Are you ready? Make Jesus Christ your Lord today…what are you waiting for?

The Great “Run - for - the - Roses”

Harry Faircloth President GA BBQ Association

Well folks we are off to a great “run-for-the-roses”, i.e.; Team of The Year that is. We have a couple teams running neck and neck down the back-stretch and there are several more on their tails and if front the runners should slow down just a little then they might just get passed. What a great race we’ve got going on and team after team is moving up after each contest. How much better can it get down the stretch? And speaking of the stretch, we have Acworth coming up in May, Gainesville in May. Then Fernandina Beach and Blairsville in June and the finale in Newnan, Georgia July 1213. The Georgia Barbecue

Association is giving you Pitmasters and Judges your monies worth this year, cooking from the mountains to the shore and from border to border. We have added events that have far exceeded our expectations and we have had events that set new records for purses and attendance. All of the cookers said “where’s the money”? I do believe they are seeing it now. Even got some Florida boys coming up here trying to get some. What more could you ask for? Our 2013-2014 cooking events calendar is taking shape with events already on the calendar. If you are a past event and haven’t secured your spot now is the time to do so. If you are an event and would like to host NOW is the time to contact the GBA and see if you can be scheduled. We are very committed to our past host but they must remember not to wait too late to renew their commitment. Next, it is time to start thinking about your election of officers for the next 2 years. Here is the process: You may nominate anyone who is a current member of The Georgia Barbecue As-

sociation. You simply get their permission first before you submit their nomination to Pam Nelms, our Secretary, in writing or by email before May 31,2013. If the person nominated is a judge, they shall not be able to judge a contest during their tenure in office. If they are a member of a cook team they shall not be a member of that cook team during their tenure in office. Our terms now are for a period of two years unless amended by The Board of Directors. Voting will by email ONLY unless you do not have an email address and then you may submit a vote in writing. Voting will begin on June 10,2013 and will end on July 31st. Tabulation will be done electronically and verified by two members of The Board of Directors. Your new officers will take office at the start of our 2013-2014 cook season in Ft Valley Ga. Let me add a personal note to this process. This is a very serious matter if you should decide to run for office. The pay is terrific because it is “volunteer”. The hours are long, as I can attest to, traveling to every

contest on the schedule and traveling far and wide to secure new ventures. Miles---many. Peacemaker—yes. You would not believe how much you will need “peopleskills” in any of our offices. It has amazed me what a great group of people we have in our organization. It has also amazed me what a few little “kinks” in the road can do to the “road” a bump here and a bump there, so you have to stay true to your road map when sometimes there are detours. So be thinking about who you would like to have for your next slate of officers. Give it some very serious thought and remember talk to your nominee first before you make a nomination. I would like to continue to wish Mr Carl Williams and Miss Mary well on their journey back to good health. Everywhere I go folks continue to ask about them and their progress. Mr Carl, Miss Mary we are all still praying and pulling for your recovery. I continue to solicit your ideas and suggestions for improving our organization. Any organization that doesn’t change becomes stagnant and melts away and

I can assure you that The Georgia Barbecue Association is on the move Up, Up and Up. You our member-

ship are the ones that prove this over and over all year long. I am very proud to be your President.

Florida Bar-B-Que Association

President’s Message By Tony Wolfe

Three months into the season and it has definitely been a busy one. The contests are all raising the bar and working to make the contests better and better. It has been great to see some new faces walk across the stage keeping the old reliables company. March and April are both busy month with several opportunities to get your que on! We welcome Eagle Lake as an officially sanctioned contest this year and welcome the Fire Ant Festival back for its second year as an FBA sanctioned contest. Find a contest near you and meet some of the best people on Earth. I have been very impressed by the high scores we have seen so far and know that more are on the way. We have already seen 1 perfect score, how many

more will we see before season end? Plans for the Fun Cook are in full swing. The weekend promises to be full of fun and friends and of course Barbeque. So of the favorite events from the previous year will be featured again - the Kids Que, the dessert and chili contest and I believe the golf tournament might make an appearance again. In addition, Battle at BBQ Junction joins the agenda. This year there will be an organizers workshop with the BOD. Don’t be left out, register early. See the FBA website for more details. We send our thoughts and hugs to the Bennett family. Jim will be truly missed. See you all on the circuit! Tony Wolfe, FBA President

I got a glimpse of them on the internet – She Rocks! We have been to Dothan, Thomaston, Eagle Lake , Fort Myers and we have Venice, Marianna, Barnesville and Tavares coming up. Lots of good places to BBQ and a lot of good laughs to be had. Lets all look out for our families and friends and get back to the basics of what makes our country so great. Someone has tried to terrorize this great country and we need to stand strong together to be strong again. It all starts at home. Bless

Smoke At The Lodge •Southern BBQ Network BY JIM HARMON

One table of Judges begin taking appearance scores for one of their pork boxes.

Summerville, SC – April 6, 2013. Located in the heart of Summerville, Land Of the Pines, the Summerville Masonic Lodge (#234) hosted its 10th annual BBQ contest, bringing some of the best cooks in the Lowcountry of South Carolina and the surrounding area! The Lodge sponsors this fantastic contest each year to raise money for the many

charities they support. The area is limited, and only 20 teams are usually able to compete. However, Bob Kuziak, the event’s organizer, managed to fit 24 teams into the small parking lot behind the Lodge. This contest is a favorite among the best cookers in the area, making it as competitive as any contest you might see! Friday evening’s “Anything But …” contest presented the judges a host of

challenges with some unique and well-prepared dishes, but Saturday morning was the biggest challenge for the cookers! On the field were Killer B’s BBQ, SBN’s 2012 Team of the Year and the Grand Champion for Wine & Swine in Augusta, Queology, the State Grand Champion for the Commissioner’s Cup, “Smokin’ At The Farmers Market,” and Some-R-Swine, who won this contest three years in a

row! Well, Seth Watari and his wife Nona did it again! Yes, Some-R-Swine won Smoke At The Lodge for the 4th time, a 4peat! Amazing! Queology came in 2nd. Congratulations to Seth and Russ Cornette (Queology) and thanks to the judges who showed once again why SBN is considered to be so professional!

Smokin’ On The River – Chattooga’s BBQ Cook-Off By Jan Jeup-Wilson

The competition site was held at Chattooga High School, located in Summerville, GA, and was held on April 5th & 6th. This event was the primary fund raiser for the The Well of Chattooga County — The Well provides an opportunity for women who are homeless to acquire the resiliency and skills to become self-sufficient contributors to society. Smokin’ on the River drew a great competition field of 41 Pro teams and 11 Backyarders. The teams were led by a dynamic duo of KCBS Reps – Randy and Carol Bigler. Randy & Carol were highly visible and maintained peace and order all weekend! The first-time event coordinator, Roxie Weesner, and her team of volunteers worked feverishly and re-

lentlessly and successfully pulled off a 1st year victory!

Southern BBQ Network Presidents Message By Jim Harmon

The Network is cooking over fire again. I’m always amazed and thankful for all of the Blessings in Barbecue that come my way. The Southern BBQ Network is judging “strong” to start the 2013 season. Our opening contest in Augusta went off with nary a hitch. 20 judges made the trip to the fine city of Augusta to experience the Wine and Swine Festival. Congratulations to the SBN Team of the Year, Killer B’s. Pit Masters Jim and Jan Burg continue to amaze the pallets of our judges with a spectacular display of “Killer” Que! Congratulations to all who competed, and all who got calls in this great contest. Thank you to all of the judges who helped to make this event a success. We are looking forward to opening the season with this contest again next year. Holly Hill stands as a marker in South Carolina competitive Barbecue. It is one of only a few whole hog contests still around in this region. They are rapidly becoming a thing of the past, largely due to the challenges they pose, so organizers of the Holly Hill Spring Blast want to keep that tradition in South Carolina Barbeque alive. Thanks to all who made the trek to the Academy. The location is a little off of the path, but if you travel well, you can make a stop at Sweatman’s to stock up on the product of a South Carolina BBQ icon. Congratulations to Razor Back BBQ’s Pit Master Jason Peterson, who proved to be this year’s top whole hog cooker. Congratulations to all of the Pit Masters who got calls and all who cooked or judged in this “old school” event. “Smokin’ at the Farmers Market” – The Commissioners Cup – was an exciting event. Governor Nikki Haley signed the proclamation stating that this contest would serve as the SC State BBQ Championship. Teams from all over the Southeast came to compete for honors. This contest was also an auto-qualifier to the World Food Championships in Las Vegas. 50 plus judges braved the cold and drizzly day at the Farmers Market Vegetable sheds to choose the best in South Carolina BBQ.

Championships in Las Vegas. What a great opportunity for the Lowcountry Teams! Daryl Mast from Barbecue Superstars was also in attendance doing a live stream and interviewing the teams. The rain subsided just in time to make a great “No Pork” night on Friday and the entertainment from the Beach Band “The Out of Towners” made it a fantastic event. This was a single category event. Some-R-Swine took top honors – for the 4th time in a row. Amazing - a 4pete!! What an achievement. Congratulations to Seth and Nona from all of us here at SBN. It was an honor to give the award. Congratulations to team Queology, and Killer Bees for their achievements. We offer huge cudos to all of the teams that walked and participated in this event. The success of Smoke at the Lodge is very near and dear to many of our hearts here at SBN.
