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.

Stagecoach BBQ Championship Results

rooftop-bbq-stagecoach-ferris-wheel

We had a great weekend at Stagecoach—besides the excessive heat that blew up a can of soda.

We split our team in two again this year: Rooftop and Basement BBQ. That way we could get all our team mates and crew in.

But before we share the results of the competition, we want to thank a few of our sponsors.

First up big thanks go out to Allredy Canopies. They hooked us up with two custom canopies and some new banners. Definitely helped keep us cool over the weekend while we were serving up our ‘que for the great crowds of Stagecoach.

Next, we want to thank our smoker sponsor: Green Mountain Grills. We added two additional smokers to our team for this weekend which allowed our two teams plenty of grill space.

More thanks goes to our great serving staff who served up all of our allotted 600 tastings.

And now finally, onto the awards, and more thanks goes to our meat sponsor: Brandt Beef. With our collected 4 entries of brisket, we received 3 calls.

Who’s Going to Stagecoach 2013?!

Rooftop BBQ will be competing and serving up tastings to the public all three days of the Stagecoach event!

Big changes came to the BBQ side of the event this year. But now we will be even easier to find!

You can find us among our fellow BBQ competitors right across from the Mane Stage, stage right.

Our teams also decided to downsize the amount of BBQ samples we will be selling… by half! So make sure you come by first thing as we plan to sell out very quickly!

See a more detailed schedule below.

Here’s our chicken box. Joe Angelone is normally the chicken guru, but couldn’t make it this weekend. Our appearance suffered a little but the flavor and texture were right on. Placed 9th out of 57.

Arizona BBQ Festival Results

We are back from our 8th competition of the year and ready for a break until the annual Mesquite competition over Labor Day weekend. We went out with a bang though, winning a third in pork at the Arizona BBQ Festival. We also sold over 1,000 samples of BBQ while completely selling out of our rub and jam. Here’s some photos from the two day festival.

We sold over 900 pieces of pig candy: bacon grilled with brown sugar and our BBQ rub. It was definitely a hit among the crowd, event staff, and even the security guards and cops!

Even though our local was far from the majority of the booths, our teams rocked it! Thanks to all of you who stopped by for our food and thanks for spreading the word about our pig candy. We couldn’t have done it without you!

Our two trusty Green Mountain Grills! We also made a lot of contacts and were able to spread the word about how awesome our sponsor of Green Mountain Grills have been.

Seeing our name on the jumbo-tron was pretty amazing, in addition to the actual winning of the third place trophy!

Thanks again to all of you who stopped by our booth. And thanks to our sponsors: Green Mountain Grills, Simply Marvelous, and iGrill.
