Despite Mother Nature looking to throw a kink in things for the weekend, 26 teams showed up in Dublin, GA on March 4, 2012 ready to give it all they had. Among these 26 teams were a good bit of first timers for FBA but that didn’t stop the showdown one bit! These newbies were ready to roll. Jim Burg of Killer B’s BBQ took home his first Grand Championship for Florida Barbecue Association sliding past B& T Cook Team and Dog House BBQ with 2.5 points for the win. Jim took home eighth place brisket, and eighth place pork. Third place in ribs and fifth place in chicken giving him a consistently high score. Bill and Teresa Tanner of Thomasville made a show for themselves finishing with first place ribs, and first

place chicken but unfortunately could only hold on to the overall sixth place spot. Doyle Jones, a local resident of Dublin, head cook of Dog House BBQ made his stamp on the competition in his home town by taking

home Reserve Champion by a First place Brisket and Pork, and tenth place ribs. Holy Smokes, Gary and Dionn Lanton, also of Dublin, GA took home third place overall, Bill Anderson with Chatham Artillery

BBQ took home fourth fol- overall and Bethel Smokers lowed by Robert Raw of U of Douglas, GA took home Rub Me Raw. B & T Cook tenth place overall. Team finished sixth overall, It’s a safe bet to place that as previously mentioned, the 2012 Dublin St. Pattyfollowed by Brad Kay and Q was quite the success. Lang Smokers in seventh Thanks to everyone who and Danny Coogle with Pit participated and put this Bulls Up in Smoke. Pitts event together to make it Toyota brought in ninth place possible.

In another bowl, stir together the ranch dressing mix, mayonnaise and green onion. Cover, and refrigerate for about 2 hours to blend flavors. Wrap bacon in paper towels and place on a plate.

Tips for New Competition BBQ Teams

Carl Williams

“Que-Talk with Smokinwilly” smokinwillysquealers@ gmail.com. In my column this month, I want to focus on new competition BBQ teams and provide some valuable tips that will help you prepare for your first BBQ Competition. While nothing anyone tells you can guarantee you a walk, these tips will help you focus on being your very best. Let me start out by saying always “Cook for the judges” Competition BBQ is different than what you would cook in your back yard. At home you only need to please yourself and your friends. You may like your barbecue hot, spicy or even fall off the bone ribs – that does not go over well at competitions. One of the most important things that I feel will benefit you the most is to learn all you can and ask questions. Go online, read all you can and talk to people. Here are some really great informational sites that I frequently visit and believe will help you. www.killerhogs.com, w w w. a m a z i n g r i b s . c o m , www.smokinpit.com, www. bbq-brethren.com/forum/ The BBQ Brethren forum is the best site out there and everyone are more than willing to help you with any

question or situation you may have. Also, write out a time line detailing what needs to be done and by whom. With everything going on it can be hard to keep track of things. Writing it all out and posting it where you can see it will keep you on track. Always Stay Flexible. Things will go wrong so be flexible. If for some reason your meat is taking to long to cook, adjust and go with it. Try not to get all worked up. Set down and relax every chance you get. Make sure you work some time to sleep into your schedule. If your smoker doesn’t have a guru or some type of pit temperature monitoring system, sleep in shifts so someone is always watching your smoker, have a temperature alarm that will wake you in case something goes wrong. Most of the time when you arrive on Friday, get set up and your meat prepared for cooking you will socialize with other teams. Have fun; meet the other teams, (pick up some tips). You are there to have fun - don’t ever loose sight of that. But remember there is a lot to be done on Saturday morning and you must be focused. There is a lot to pack for a BBQ Competition and it’s easy to forget something so make a list of things you will need to take with you. Check it, adjust it, use it. If you are entering an ancillary category make sure you add all the ingredients, tools and utensils to the list. It’s a good idea to get to the competition early, get set-up and get your bearings. Find out where the water and electric is located. Set up can be stressful for a new BBQ team when you don’t really know what to expect. Remember everything at a BBQ Competition runs on a schedule so even if you

wear a watch it helps to have a clock so you will have the “official” time in plain sight. There is no Hot water at a competition site, so for hot water I fill a large water cooler with hot water and it will stay hot for hours. Another thing you must consider is space. There is nothing worse than trying to put your boxes together and not having the space to do it. Always keep your work area organized and clean. You need to practice making your turn in boxes. Even though appearance is the lowest factor in scoring, it is the most under your control. You will receive a set of contest rules either before the Competition or at the cook’s meeting. Read them and ask questions if you need clarification on anything. Very important, don’t be shy. If you have a question just ask. The Organizer, Contest Reps and other BBQ teams will be happy to answer any questions you may have. If you have any specific topics you would like for me to address or feedback, please email me at smokin willysquealers@gmail.com. Remember!

GBA: “It’s All About the Taste!”

Harry Faircloth

President GA BBQ Association The Georgia Barbecue Association in conjunction with Audrey Evans and The Pigs and Wings BBQ Competition broke new ground in Perry Georgia. If you were not there you missed out on the biggest event in GBA his-

tory. We had cookers from far and near, we had judges from far and near. We had celebrities from far and near. We had distinguished visitors. We had over fifty, yes 50 cookers participating. I believe Miss Audrey has set “The Bar” for the rest of the year. WOW what an event, I know everyone had a great time and are already looking forward to 2013 Pigs and Wings BBQ Competition. ••• Now for “Harry’s Sweet Corner”........... I have three recipes for you this month from “me” and I hope you enjoy them for they are time tested and “DEElicious”.

KEY LIME PIE

The Way I See It

Ernie Wright

DW’s Kountry Cookers Inspirational Thoughts The hardest part in writing an article is getting

started, The BBQ Times is about BBQ and BBQ competitions, and I know you like queing or you would not be reading this article. We have been competing for a few years and it is human nature to want to win but there can only be one grand Champion and the judges are the ones that pick that. However, we can all be winners in life. Some time back I ask Audrey what she thought about an article from a spiritual standpoint in the paper. She said, “I like that idea, will you write it?” Well there you go big mouth, you asked for it, now what?

1-14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk 1- 8 oz. pkg.... Cream cheese (softened) 2/3 cup key lime juice (may substitute lime juice) 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla 1- graham cracker pie crust 1 container of Cool Whip “Extra Creamy” topping

Mix condensed milk, cream cheese, key lime juice and vanilla until smooth with a blender or mixer. Pour into pie crust and refrigerate for 3 hours or until firm. Top with “Extra Creamy” topping, let set for 3 or 4 hours. Serve with a thin “twist” of a lime. If you like can adjust your juice for more tart or less tart. (This is one of my favorites and I make it often to give to

I am not a preacher or spiritual leader, and I certainly am not a writer, but one think for sure I believe in, is God. I believe that the Bible is the Word of God; the Bible speaks about winners and losers, and how to be winners and not a loser. The Bible says that God created man and gave him dominion over all creation, so we are to give credit for our ability to compete in life, but we must never forget that God is in charge. Let me tell you about one of the greatest men of the Bible, His name was Moses. He came up with excuses why he could not do what God wanted him to do, but

friends or for events since it is so easy to make)

BETTER THAN SEX CAKE 1 box yellow cake mix 1 small box instant vanilla pudding 1⁄2 cup of water 1⁄2 cup of oil 4 eggs 1-8 oz. carton sour cream 1-6 oz. bag chocolate chips 1 - cup pecans 1 - bar German chocolate, melted 1 - cup coconut Mix first 4 ingredients; add eggs and beat well after each addition. Add next 5 ingredients. Bake in a wellgreased tube pan at 350 degrees for 50 to 55 minutes. (This one comes from my 93 year old aunt who said it

was “better-than-sex”. Don’t reckon she might have forgotten do you?)

MOONSHINE CAKE 10 egg whites 1 - teaspoon cream of tarter 11/2 cups of sugar, sifted 3 or 4 times 1 - cup pastry flour, sifted 3 or 4 times 1⁄4 teaspoon salt 7 - egg yokes 1 - teaspoon almond extract Beat egg whites until light (add salt). Add cream of tarter in small amounts as you beat egg whites until stiff. In a separate bowl beat egg yokes: add 2 teaspoons of whites. To whites, add sug-

ar, almond extract and beat with each addition. Combine both mixtures, fold in flour. Bake at 350 degrees one hour in tube pan, placed in a pan of hot water. (This one came from the wife of a “shine-maker” who swore this was the only cake he would eat after she gave it this name) •••

I hope you enjoy one or all of these recipes and be sure and e-mail me your most favorite recipe and a short story to go with it. Nothing better than some hot “Q” and a fresh dessert to go with it. Enjoy everybody.

Porchetta and The Smoking Goose

with the help of God he lead the children of Israel out of bondage and God always answered his prayers. Once he did not give God credit, God did not tell Moses to hit the rock with his staff, he simply said speak to the rock in the presence or the children of Israel and water would come out of the rock. Moses said we must fetch you water out of the rock so Moses took his staff and hit the rock two times until water came out of the rock, you see this is the way we are. We want to take credit for winning when BBQ Superstars.com we should give credit to God for our ability to win, which bbqsuperstars@gmail.com is how I see it! I recently went to Indianapolis for the Super Bowl and found a place called “The Smoking Goose.” It was a factory where they took pork and processed it into all these sausages- salami, porchetta, and cold cured, cold smoked, and bacon sausage. I got a 20 - minute video of it all. Where did all this come from? Would you guess Italy and Europe? Now the thing that was so amazing to find out was that they were charging over $30 a pound for it!! Wow! I must admit, there were a lot of spices on this meat and don’t worry it’s primarily bought by upscale restaurants. What is the mark up on

Darryl Mast

that, pork in a bulk hog is about $1.49 a pound, you do have to add some spices, there is a cold smoking process, or a cold curing process. That has to raise it at least $.50 a pound. Sounds pretty good? The only thing I could see costing so much was the 10,000 square foot cooler that they operated in and the electricity it used. The place was spotless. That also cost money, people have to spend a lot of time cleaning and these guys get paid! What is the kicker? Its good! OMG its Good! Hell Yeah!! Its good, really good, you start eating it and $30 a pound went by so fast you have got a bill of $105 before you even get started! You could go to The Comedy Zone, hear a messed up comic, eat 2 plates, buy the people next to you a plate, and drink 6 drinks for exactly $105! I’ve never done that, Ha Ha but Uh yeah! Which would you choose? Maybe I’ll have Porchetta one time in a lifetime?? I don’t know, but its BBQ Outside the United States!! I got charged $.50 for a piece of bread in Germany at a restaurant in 1985. It sure is different outside the United States.

Keeping the fun in BBQ

Dana “Big Papa” Hillis President FL BBQ Association

I have a brother that came to his first contest ever with me last year and like most everyone after his first contest he was hooked on competition bbq. We had an absolute blast hanging out and he could not believe how friendly and helpful ev-

eryone was. He also realized there is a lot of work that goes into a contest and he had truly thought it was just a big party and drinkathon. The more events he has come to the more he has realized this bbq stuff is pretty serious. I don’t care how hard you work at a contest when there are guys around like Bob and Jim from Getta Grip BBQ you are gonna have some good laughs during a weekend. If you get a minute to visit these guys you will see what I mean. Set up anywhere close to Team Unknown and you will not last the weekend without some good laughs. Just listen in on a little musical genius from Dorsey Odell and you will become a huge fan. The FBA song is a classic. Things have gotten a little more serious around

the Unknown camp since Sugarfoot Lee took charge. I heard he removed all beds and sleeping arrangements out of their trailer and is cracking the whip on the rest of the crew and it is working with a fast climb up the team of the year standings with some great finishes – 4th – 1st and 2nd in their last three contests. Whiskey Bent BBQ has been known to have a good time at a contest and Chad brings a lot of energy and good times to BBQ. Just listen to him on the radio show – Live in the pit – we actually made a little wager on the show one night about who we thought would be the next team to win their first Grand – Chad picked Getta Grip and I picked Fully Involved. Since then it has been discussed that there is an “In the Pit” hex

2 tablespoons butter, softened 1 tablespoon plus 1-1/2 teaspoons chopped rehydrated sun-dried tomatoes, not packed in oil 1-1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley

chop mushrooms; divide evenly among 4 plates. Carve steaks into slices; arrange evenly over mushrooms. Season with salt, as desired. Garnish with additional parsley, if desired. Makes 4 servings

1. Combine garlic, thyme and pepper; press evenly onto beef steaks. Set aside. 2. Brush mushrooms with oil. Place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals; arrange mushrooms around steaks.

on these 2 teams. Getta Grip had been cruising along nailing brisket and won 1st in chicken and ribs at Dundee and ended up 3rd overall because their brisket bombed. Dave with Fully involved has been flirting with a win and a toothpick in a chicken box stopped him from getting that first big grand. If this streak keeps up Chad and I will have to retract our wager on the show. Stop by and visit Jady Hill at a contest when he is sitting outside his trailer chilling and get a conversation going about the nicknames he has for teams. One day I will write them down and put them out for everyone – funny stuff. I cooked next to Myron Mixon a while back and I am still laughing about some of the things that man has to say. There is nothing he likes better then

to have people come visit him at a contest so feel free to stop in and say hello. I miss seeing the Bubba Chucks at contests because these guys enjoy life and BBQ more then anyone I have ever met. When you see Forrest at a contest and have a minute or 2 get him to tell you about his love and passion for alpacas and you have got to hear the Llama story. Forrest is the closest thing to Jerry Clower I have heard in my lifetime. No one in BBQ enjoys being at a contest more then the Gang from Kick The Tire Light The Fire. Mike Bird, Mad Dawg, Darryl, Wayne, Big John (Squeels on Wheels) June and the smartest dog I have ever seen – Lolly- make up one of the longest running teams in bbq history. They have been cooking together for over 14

years and I have had some good laughs with this bunch. Terry “Mad Dawg” Madden has been a good friend of mine since I started cooking. When I finally beat him in chicken one time that was a highlight in my cooking career. We have had friendly wagers for bragging rights and stealing mojo has been a lot of fun. At the Clermont contest last week Mad Dawg announced his retirement from competition bbq due to health issues. My hopes and prayers are with my buddy and hope he makes a big comeback so he can retire several more times. Go cook at a contest. If you’re a judge or just a bbq junkie wander around and say hello. I guarantee you some good laughs and If you happen to get a call on stage it sure is fun.

Isle Country Jamboree & BBQ Contest - Isle Casino - Pompano Beach, FL

Mixon Rolls The Dice in Pompano By Audrey Evans Editor On March 9, 2012 nineteen teams rolled in to the Isle Casino in Pompano Beach, Fl. and they weren’t rolling the dice on the casino boards either. Myron Mixon head cook of Jack’s Old South took a gamble with going to a new competition sanctioned by Florida Barbecue Association or heading back to a competition where he has already won. Sure enough, it was a safe gamble for Myron when he came home with First Place in Pork, Brisket and Ribs topped off by Grand Champion; the payout was right on time. The Isle Stud Porkers, a team put together by the casino with their experienced chefs, took home Reserve Champion with second place pork and brisket and fifth place ribs and chicken. Blitzkrieg BBQ took fourth followed by Getta Grip BBQ and The Q finishing the top five. The Q also took home first place chicken.

2012 Pigs and Wings BBQ Competition

By Audrey Evans Editor When most folks directly involved with Pigs and Wings woke up on the morning of February 23, 2012, they had no idea what the weekend truly had in store. Teams were beginning to show up as early as 8AM on Thursday and it all went from there. By the cooks meeting on Friday afternoon 58 teams were on site to cook what had become the largest cook-off to be sanctioned by the Georgia Barbecue Association. With Prize money over $14,500 and some of the top teams in the Nation, these judges were for sure to be in for a treat. Teams began by competing in a Margarita, Dessert and Brunswick stew categories on Friday evening and the smoke rolled on through the night. Bright and early Saturday morning, the teams were hosted to a fantastic breakfast catered by the local The New Perry Hotel and started turning in Bloody Mary’s at 9AM and continued through the day with Pork Loin, Chicken,

Pulled Pork, Ribs and Brisket. Joe Wright and his team Bethel Smokers out of Douglas, GA walked away with the Grand Champion prize of $3000 not to mention all of the other goodies along the way to get there. Mad Cow Cutlery donated an extremely nice knife carving set to the Grand Champion and also a set to the Reserve Champion, Smokin’ 42 BBQ, head cook Chad Brooks out of Tifton, GA. Mad Cow Cutlery also sent a paring knife to each team, vendor, sponsor and judges while supplies lasted. Sucklebusters sent Sauces and Rubs which were given to the first place winners in their basket, Lang Smokers presented a Lang 36 Smoker to organizer Audrey Evans and also a Lang fire pit which was given to the team with the lowest score in the running for Grand Champion. A Large thank You is deserved for these fine folks in making this event such a success. For the Margarita Catego-

ry, the top ten in consecutive order are: Aunt Mary’s BBQ Brigade taking home first followed by DW’s Kountry Cookers, Smokinwilly Squealers, Smokin’ Swine BBQ Crew, W.E.E.
