Last weekend we competed in Wendover, Nevada. The 10 hour drive was worth it when we won 4th place in both the ribs and brisket category.
Next up: Mesquite, Nevada…. Labor Day weekend, here we come!
The boys competed at the Ribs, Pigs, and Watermelons Competition right on the coast in Huntington Beach this past weekend.
They got a walk with an 9th in brisket, and 13th place overall out of the 65 teams that were there. Pretty strong competition but they held their ground!
After a few days off, the team heads to Wendover, Nevada tomorrow for this weekend’s competition…. then Mesquite, NV and Alamosa, CO. All back to back.
We are headed out to Huntington Beach this weekend to compete at the Ribs, Pigs and Watermelons competition.
Hope to see everyone there Saturday.
We’ll be sampling out our competition meat along with tri tip and pig candy.

The dust has settled and the smoke has cleared from the Pechanga BBQ Championships.
This was a great competition—20 minutes from home, nestled between the grand Pechanga Casino and the rolling hills. The weather was perfect, grounds beautiful.
We loaded in Friday morning and spent the day relaxing and slowly setting up. Big meats went on at 12:30, just after midnight, and we settled in for the night. With 70 teams all having their smokers the air was full of the smell of brisket, pork and wood smoke. Our Green Mountain Grills held temp all night while we got some sleep. Saturday morning the 4 meats finished up and were turned in.
During awards the room was tense and with 70 teams it was anyone’s game. We ended up with 1st in brisket, 8th in pork and 9th chicken. Finishing 8th overall. Congrats to Left Coast Q for their 5th for the bbq year.
Come on out to Pechanga this Saturday for a taste of Rooftop BBQ!

We had the Long Beach BBQ comp this past weekend. While selling 28 pork shoulders worth of pulled pork sandwiches, we took a 2nd in pork and a 10th in chicken out of 55 teams.
While we’ve been cooking with it for some time now, this was the first event we sold the new Pitmaster sauce and it was greatly received.
See more of our weekend in photos below, as well as some videos created on Vine by our teammate Kellen Wagoner.
It’s that time again… Rooftop BBQ is coming to the Queen Mary in Long Beach this coming weekend!
Join us as we serve up plates of melt in your mouth pulled pork, by the sandwich plate or by the tasting.
We are expecting the same crowds as last year so come early before we sell out!
