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.
- 3rd and a 5th in chicken
- 7th in ribs
- 5th in brisket
- 2nd and a 6th in chicken
- 5th in ribs
- 4th and an 8th in brisket
- Reserve Grand Champion for Saturday’s competition!
Thanks again to all who came out to support us and help us out throughout the weekend. Hope to see many of you at Long Beach next weekend!
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!
