Florida Barbeque Association Team of the Year Dana & Janet Hillis • Big Papa’s Country Kitchen

Photo by Don Miller Dana and Janet Hillis accept the TOTY Banner from President Tony Wolfe. As the year rolled on for Florida BarBY AUDREY EVANS When I think of Dana Hillis and his wife beque Association, the Team of the Year Janet, the only thing that really comes to race seemed pretty tight. Between Big Pamind is Family. Whether its BBQ family or pa’s, Swamp Boys and Git-R-Smoked some Kin-Folk Family, Dana and Janet help mold people questioned if they had a dog in the the definition of it or of what a lot of folks fight. I even heard talk of someone breaking Rub’s knees. Now that seems a little harsh want it to be.

to me but of course it was nothing more than a loving joking comradery between all these FBA teams. You would just have to know them to understand. A pleasure I’ve gotten to find this year. In the end, Dana closed out the totals being sixty points ahead for the Team of the Year spot. Should we really expect any different from the person who came in Reserve Grand during the World Food Championships in Las Vegas? Rob Bagby of team Swamp Boys, put up a tough fight as mentioned before. Even after winning Grand in Sebring, Florida with a first place in Ribs and second place in Brisket along with four other Grand Championships, he couldn’t hang on to second for the year. Terry McKay of team Git-R-Smoked, FBA Team of the Year for 2011 came in with the second place position. Terry took home Reserve Grand in Sebring, Florida which kept him in the second place position. Going into Sebring Rub and Terry were only 20 points away from each other. Florida Barbeque Association had over twenty five contest in contention for points, of those there were sixteen cook teams to

win a contest. Swamp Boys and Big Papa’s Country Kitchen tied with five Grand Championships a piece; Git-R-Smoked followed with four Grand Championships; Unknown BBQ and Budmeisters both had three; B & T Cook Team and Wooley Bully BBQ Mafia had two each. Other teams who one Grand in 2012 were: Blitzkrieg BBQ, Hot Wachula’s, Lang BBQ Smokers, Munchees Smokehouse, Jacks Old South, Suwannee River Smokers, Smokinwilly Squealers, United Pork Smokers and Killer B’s BBQ. 1.

Drinking Jack D Planning Pigs and Wings

Audrey Evans

Editor & Publisher

I feel like I am always starting off my column, saying HOLY COW…It’s (insert month) Already! So I am not going to do that this time, or maybe I just did… oh well, I guess it’s like they say, Time Flys When you are having fun! That is one thing I have found for sure in the bbq circuit: great friends and great fun. As the 2013 Season is quickly getting under way, I get reminded daily how busy these few months are going to be for me. The BBQ Times, helps host and

organize Pigs and Wings BBQ Competition, which I am sure many of you have heard about by now. As the Event Organizer, and Editor of the paper, it is safe to say “my cup runneth over” in January and February but I wouldn’t change a thing. I love the fact that not only am I with these teams through the year working with the paper but that I actually get to put together an event of this magnitude for the teams and for the town of Perry, where I live. Perry, GA is a quiet small town

right in the smack dab middle of Georgia if you are not familiar, and this event is hosted by The Perry-Houston County Airport Authority, February 22-23, 2013 so everyone has plenty of time to make plans, plenty of room to roam and we have plenty of room to grow! This year we have opened our doors to vendors, and sponsors and have a Monetary Prize of over $12,000! $4,000 to the Overall Champion and $1500 Grand Champion! This is where I am calling out to all of

you big timers – Get out of the mentally that Georgia Barbecue Association is a backyard event, Come give it a shot and see what it is about! Georgia Barbecue Association is a great tool for the cities and citizens of the state of Georgia and we can truly get an edge on the world of BBQ! We are still accepting applications for cook-teams, vendors and sponsors! You don’t want to miss out on the 5th Annual Pigs and Wings BBQ Competition! In 2013 I am speaking out

to other event organizers, do you want your event on the map for BBQ? Contact me, lets get some ads going, lets get you some coverage for your event, your sanctioning body and your teams! Talk to me folks; let me know if you have an event you would like to be covered. I am getting my calendar together this month and I am looking for places to be Featured each month of 2013. Let’s get your town on the map in the world of

on the barbecue pro-competition circuit. We competed in 17 different pro-competition events across Georgia, Florida and Alabama and made hundreds of new friends. Most exciting, we got to spend time with some of our wonderful barbecue and facebook friends that we have made over the past several years. As I was thinking about my article for starting the New Year, I have been asked many times “Willy” what is your secret with your success in smoking a brisket. To be honest and as most professional cooks will tell you, it’s really not about all that “secret” talk you hear when you visit different cook sites. It is all about your product, technique, recipe, cooking

process and most important being consistent each time you cook a brisket. Not every brisket will cook the same as I have experienced over the years. Very seldom you will ever find two briskets that are the same or even cook the same. What I am providing here in this article is my knowledge, experience and skills in cooking a competition brisket. While I can’t guarantee that you will be an instant brisket professional, I will provide you with guidelines and information that will give you knowledge to compete with the best cooks on the procircuit. Some will say that the brisket is the most dreaded category to cook. For me, it’s my preferred category and I love the challenge. I

would be lying to you if I said there is a way to ensure excellent results 100% of the time. There is not! However, if you’re having difficulties in cooking a competition brisket and will follow the guidelines and information I have provided in this article, you will see improvements in your next competition brisket scores. As with all categories, remember; “It’s all about the taste”! With a brisket, you must “Maintain that “Beefy” taste. If you have a tender moist “Beefy” “POP and WOW” brisket you will be successful. Add 12 oz of Swanson’s beef broth (Purchase at WalMart or your local grocer). *Tip: Add 8 oz of “strained” AUJUS saved from previous cook (Total of 20 oz). If AUJUS is not available use 20 oz of beef broth. Bring to a boil, stir and then turn off. Do this about a week before going to the event to allow all the different flavors to marinade together. (Bottle and keep cool until time to inject). Prep and inject brisket with above mixture on Friday morning after the meat inspection (I prep at home on Wednesday prior to the event). Inject about 8 to 10 oz into the brisket. *The remainder will be used as a marinade. (If you have more than one brisket adjust ingredients accordingly). Put brisket in a stretch flex bag (Unscented). *Pour remaining injection mixture in the bag. *Tip: Remove all air from the bag and twist several times until it gets really tight. (The purpose of this is to create a vacuum inside the bag, which will help pull the marinade into the brisket). Tie bag and put on ice. Leave in bag until 2 hours before time to put in the smoker. (I put my brisket in the smoker at 1 a.m. on Saturday morning). Remove brisket from bag, wipe

off excess and rub remaining marinade evenly over the brisket. Apply to the top and sides a light coat of Lawry’s seasoned salt and Tone’s garlic powder (Both can be purchased from Sam’s). Let rest approximately 30 minutes and apply an equal coat of Draper’s BBQ Moo’d Enhancer and A.P. BBQ rub. After applying the rubs place brisket in a large aluminum pan fat cap down, cover and let sit out for 11/2 hours. Remove cover and pour in 32 oz of Swanson’s beef broth (Make sure not to get on top of the brisket). Insert temperature probe horizontally in the flat just above where you will be making your slices. Put in the smoker “uncovered” at 225 degrees for approximately 5 to 6 hours or until desired color is reached (Check after 3/4 hours and add additional beef broth if needed). Normally the internal temperature will be around 160/165 degrees. Sprinkle top lightly with table grind black pepper. Evenly sprinkle 1/2 tablespoon of Tone’s onion powder (Purchase at Sam’s) and 1/2 tablespoon of ground celery seed www.spicesetc. com into the AUJUS liquid. Stir, cover with foil and put back in the smoker.

Battle at BBQ Junction begins

Dana Hillis

Pitmaster Big Papa’s Country Kitchen Big Papa has started a new bbq series in hopes of bringing the public to a bbq and having a 1 on 1 bbq throw down between 2 teams at a time and letting everyone get up close and personal with the cook teams as they prepare a mystery dinner for some vip judges. At 2:30 0n Friday afternoon 2 teams face off under identical tents and have 1 hour and 45 minutes to prepare whatever is given to them in the mystery box. They both have identical cookers to cook on and are given identical ingredients to go along with a well stocked

pantry. They must fire up their cookers as needed and have quite a nice selection of cookers to cook on. We have a large green egg, a Fast Eddies pg500 pellet cooker, a Meadow Creek Charbroiler and a good ol fashioned dutch oven. Each team is required to cook an appetizer, side dish, main dish and a desert. At 6:00 2 more teams face off and the winner of each round meets for the final at 2:30 on Saturday just after brisket turn in and the winners are announced at awards at 5:00. The folks watching are allowed to ask questions and the cook teams don’t need much encouragement to make it a good time for everyone. We had the first battle in Naples and I never imagined the teams involved would have so much fun and be so entertaining. Round one saw Swinos do battle against Sweet Smoke Q and the food these guys turned in was phenomenal. The judges were awesome – we had a retired police officer, Scott from Gator Country and DR. BBQ Ray

Lampe. Both teams put on a great cooking display and the score was within 1 point with Swinos coming out on top. Round 2 had 2 cool teams facing off. Lang BBQ Smokers all the way down from South Carolina did battle against Bones Brothers BBQ out of Ft. Myers. Bones Brothers turned in some serious artwork but was edged out by some cowboy cooking and the finals between Lang and Swinos was on. Steak and lobster was on the menu for the final and both teams cooked up some awesome steaks but Langs lobster stuffed mushrooms edged out Swinos lobster bisque and Brad and Cody won a trip for 2 on Carnival Cruise lines to the Bahamas. All 4 cook teams were so impressive I wondered how the next teams would do in Ft. Pierce. These guys set the bar high on showmanship and great food so we were looking forward to setting up for the next battle in Ft. Pierce. Cowboys cookoff in

Ft. Pierce was the setting for the 2nd Battle at BBQ junction and we again had a great lineup of cook teams. The Cooking Cowboy and reigning dutch oven super hero Forrest Fine Foods faced off against the multi talented and well known Team Unknown. These guys were serious and had some serious fun. You are entitled to one life line called phone a friend and Papa Clark from Team Unknown used his. He called Forrest! Forrest gave him a few tips on cooking pork chops and it must have helped because Team Unknown squeaked out a 1 point victory over their hero. Round 2 was another talented battle. Whiskey Bent BBQ went up against the high profile bbqing attorney Divine Swine. This was another blast to watch and there was no let down on quality of food. It was another close score but Thomas and his Divine Swine team got the nod on another one point close score. So the final battle was set with Divine Swine fac-

ing Team Unknown. The final cooler included raw oysters, salmon and shrimp and the oysters seemed to throw Thomas a curve ball. The Unknown boys were as smooth a team as I have ever seen work together and had things on cruise control. Team Unknown lost the coin toss and turned in first. The judges were extremely impressed and the score was high and the compliments from the judges made it look like Thomas was going to have a hard time. When the Divine Swine team did their presentation the judges were impressed and the final score saw Divine Swine take home the championship. Thomas’ winning edge came on a scalloped potatoe casserole that put his entry over the top. I cant thank all these teams enough for being a part of this new series. Everyone watching had a great time. The teams involved enjoyed the challenge and proved not only are these guys great bbq cooks they are top notch chefs. A special thanks from Big Papas

goes out to Big Green Egg for coming on board as a cooker sponsor and also to Meadow Creek for their efforts on helping us get started and sponsoring us with 2 awesome cookers. Forrest Fine Foods is our Dutch oven sponsor and has hooked us up with tables and ovens. A Big Thank You to all the folks behind the scenes that have helped us get rolling. Any one that is interested in cooking or hosting a “Battle At BBQ Junction just send me an email to and we will get you all the details. We are scheduled for events at Clermont, Ft. Myers, Venice and Lakeland and are looking for a couple more teams. Congratulations to Damon Wooley and the BBQ Mafia for a well deserved win in Naples and to my favorite cowboy who is not scared to wear pink for his big win in Ft. Pierce. See yall at a contest soon and bless our troops. I miss you Pop.

barbecue events. We have already scheduled our first event for 2014, a new contest guess where? We are going back to Jeykll Island, you folks have been asking for it and “Howdy” here it is. A lot of our officers and BOD’s have been working on our schedule and its paying off and yes it is paying $$$$$$ off. Next month we start back up for the 2013 year with Pigs and Wings in Perry, GA. This event is a fifth year contest and last year housed 59 teams. We are excited to see what Audrey comes up with this year. There are new events in Statesboro Ga and Swains-

boro Ga and are putting up some very nice prize packages that are top dollar and with some new twist. Let’s don’t forget about Plains Ga in early March. They are planning some new twist also. Last year this cookoff was in June and was so hot, they decided to move up to March this year. More specific news about Jackson and Hazlehurst will be forth coming shortly but put them on your calendar also for April & May. Smoke on the Lake at Acworth Ga is a new and exciting event with some very nice $$$$. This year all of you will be excited to know that Bre-

anau Barbecue Championship will be a joint GBA/ MBN contest. Everybody loves this event and it supports a very fine charity to enable young people to be able to attend college who otherwise might not be able . As you all know Mr Jim Barco always does a great job with his contest. Back to the beach at Fernandina Beach and this year Jay Robertson says no hurricane so it should be a “fine-time-at-the-beach”. From the beach back to the mountains The Lodge At Copperhead that is. Michelle and Jerry and their team promises to put one another super event, if you

missed it last fall you don’t want to miss this one. We also have a new signup system for our judges that seems to be working well, just another new system to help the organizers and the Lead Reps. Don’t forget to check out the web-site for all the news and thanks to Mr Jim Sewell for all his efforts at bbqga. com, he is doing a fantastic job. Let’s not forget Mr Carl Williams in our prayers and Miss Mary.

We all want to wish him a speedy recovery.

Carl Williams Continued from Page 4 Begin probing brisket at 195 degrees to check for tenderness. (If you’re using a “Prime or Wagu” brisket begin probing at 185 degrees). I use an ice pick, which allows me to feel the breaking point much better. Remove brisket from smoker when you can push the ice pick into the brisket with ease, no pressure. (This is a critical step so make sure you keep checking the “break point” at 3/4-degree intervals). Once the break point is reached, remove brisket from smoker. “Open top and vent for a minimum of 10 minutes to stop the cooking process”. (Very important. Do Not miss this step or your brisket will be to tender). Pour excess AUJUS in a large gravy separator and save leaving about 1 cup in the pan. *Tip: Save all excess AUJUS you don’t use for adding to your injection mix at your next contest as

noted above. Wrap in blankets and put in an ice chest. This is what I do. However, some cooks use a Cambro. Let rest at least 2 hours before you prepare your turn in box. This allows time for the remaining “Beefy flavor” AUJUS to be absorbed back into the brisket making it moist and flavorful. (Longer is ok as long as you have stopped the cooking process before wrapping). For your burnt ends remove meat from bottom side of the point where it separates from the flat. Remove any excess fat. Cut several 1 to 11/8 inch squares. Put in a small aluminum pan and pour over top with burnt end sauce. Sprinkle with Draper’s Moo’d Enhancer. Put in the smoker “uncovered” for 1 hour. Burnt end sauce: 1 cup of saved AUJUS and 1/2 cup of Draper’s BBQ Smokin’ sauce

Recommendations: (1). Perform a “test cook and box building” at home before you go to your next contest. If you have any questions regarding prepping, technique, recipe, or cooking process, please contact me and I’ll be glad to help you. (2). Make a “Timeline Schedule” of the sequence of events above so enough time will be allowed for you to meet your turn in schedule.

Contact Audrey Evans at aevans@bqtimes. com or aevans@sunmulti. com and she will be happy to work with you! Cue’~Tip: Trim the brisket flat to fit the box before it goes on the smoker: The slices you’re turning in should fit the box. You don’t want them hanging over the edges or curled up. I’ve seen some boxes where the slices have been trimmed after the brisket is cooked and it looks better to have bark completely around the slice instead of having chopped off ends. This can give the judge the impression that something is wrong and will also make a much better looking box. Stay safe, Have fun and Happy Cue’ing!!

Audrey Evans Continued from Page 4 BBQ, if you don’t have a competition and think you might be interested in hosting one, I’ll set you up with the right folks for your area! Now, on to the good stuff. I had several request for this to run again after seeing my chili on Facebook. Maybe now you’ll understand why there was a problem when I ran out of Jack…Good thing I got hooked up with some Apple Pie New Years….. that is if you know what I’m talking about. I am going to start off by saying that yes, this is truly how I make chili but; this is also something I found typed up one day and got a kick out of it. After all, this paper is about having fun and this is me to a “T” some would say. This isn’t you’re normal chili. Anyone who makes chili can tell you that there is a perfect science to chili and that is

just a known fact in the bbq world. No matter what you do you will not be able to duplicate the same batch of chili, even when you write it down! This is a special chili that I learned to make a few years back and there’s just something about it that makes it perfect. You will only be able to use this as a guideline, but I can assure you it will be some of the best you’ve ever tasted. If you know me well enough, you are sure to figure out my catch, but I only learn from the best! I am going to have to write this in a slightly different recipe form than usual, so please forgive me if I loose track.

Big D’s Chili with A’s Twist

Ingredients 2 lbs. lean ground beef 1 tsp. of salt

Cooking Pot (NOT FRYING PAN) on medium heat. Add your onions and garlic to the Cooking Pot to gently cook until soft but not browned. Add Wine, beef, beer stock or water (I use Jack) to the meat mixture and stir well. Let this simmer for 5 – 10 minutes and Repeat Step ONE as you wait. We are making some good chili now! Add the chili powder, cumin, black pepper, brown sugar, oregano and diced green peppers into your Cooking pot and simmer on medium heat for 1 – 2 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, beans, green chilies, ketchup, mustard, hot sauce and Worcestershire. Add more wine, beer, beef stock or water at this point if it is too thick. Make two pot swirls to add your Cane Patch Syrup, or if you are as lucky as me use Carl Williams Cane Syrup. Cover and let simmer for 5-10 minutes before doing a taste test on chili but repeat step ONE to pass the time. This next step is always a

Page 7

favorite of mine – QUALITY CONTROL CHECK. Use a clean spoon, taste test and adjust any seasonings or liquids as you see fit. Remember salt increases as the chili reduces and cooks so you don’t want to add too much. Repeat Step ONE and QUALITY CONTROL CHECK every 20-30 minutes for approximately 2 hours as it simmers. Finally, Pour another ½ glass of Jack Daniels (there is no way your original glass is not long gone by now.) You have two options with this glass depending on when you are going to serve the chili. If you are going to serve it immediately, add the Jack to the pot and stir well, simmer for 20 minutes and enjoy! If you are going to store the chili and not eat it immediately: remove the pot from the heat, stir in the Jack, cover and let sit until you refrigerate or freeze. You catch my drift now? It’s the recipe for a good nights sleep….Yall keep rubbing those butts!
