After 4 back to back weekends of BBQ competitions, we are looking forward to having about a month off! A few catering jobs will keep us behind the grills though!

Just have to share the results from the last of the 4, from Beat the Heat in Alamosa, Colorado….

We had a good cook along the Rio Grande: 7th in chicken, 1st in ribs, 6th in pork and 4th in brisket.

Finishing 4th overall — and putting us in the top 100 in each category in the nation!

Congrats to Swinestone Cowboys for GC and Big Poppa Smokers for RGC.

Time for a couple weeks off…

Smokin’ in Mesquite Results 2013

For the fourth year in a row, the boys spent their Labor Day weekend in the middle of the desert at the Casablanca Resort in Mesquite, Nevada—as one of the over 50 competitors competing for a piece of the $40,000 purse.

Their Green Mountain Grills definitely pulled through as the night of the cook there were major thunder and lightning storms moving through the area.

With their best showing yet, Rooftop Barbeque took home a 5th in chicken, 2nd in ribs, and 3rd in pork; placing them just outside of the top 3 with a 4th place overall—only 3-4 points shy of grand champion (out of 600). With the caliber of their fellow competitiors, their 4th place is definitely something to be proud of!

If you’re never made it to an awards ceremony for BBQ, here is a rare glimpse of all the calls the team made. Good job, Rooftop!

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!

Competition Results: Pechanga’s Second Annual Pro BBQ Championship

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.
