Promoting BBQ 101

Posted in backyard, Competition BBQ, Important News with tags , , , , , , on March 15, 2011 by Big JT

TC and I were up bright and early to go one two morning radio shows, first we were on 100.3 FM KORN Country with Dave “The King” Wilson promoting and giving a little background on our Competition team. After we wrapped it up there it was time to bring in the food and let the morning crews sample the BBQ we were talking about. About 20 minutes later we went into QMIX and chatted it up with the Q Wake Up Crew. TC and I had a blast and I believe we are getting some good promotion for the class. For more info on the class Click the BBQ 101 link on the right side of the page. Here are some pictures from this morning with the Q Wake up Crew.

Squealers BBQ & Wicked Good Charcoal…

Posted in Around the house, Competition BBQ with tags , , , , , , on March 7, 2011 by Big JT

On Saturday we made the trip up to Mooresville, In to pick up Some Wicked Good Charcoal from a BBQ place called Squealers. I have never been there, but I heard that it was owned and operated by a fairly successful competition team.  I wasn’t expecting much in the way of food since it was after all a restaurant.  When we pulled into the parking lot and opened the doors you were immediately hit with the aroma of smoke (which is good if you are a BBQ place)

Once inside you were greeted withdozens of awards and other bbq decor hanging on the walls.

I ordered the 3 meat pit sampler; Ribs, Brisket, and Pulled pork with slaw and potato salad as sides. After about 15 minutes our orders arrived.

Well I can say that i was pleasantly surprised with the quality of food that we received, everything was well seasoned and had the right amount of smoke. I asked for my meal dry since they apply sauce for you in the back. Turns out i didn’t need any sauce at all.  I ended up taking the ribs home and eating them for dinner later that night.

And finally I now have 20 bags of WIcked Good Charcoal in my garage waiting to be used.
