Swamp Boys on BBQ Pitmasters!

ABOUT: Swamp Boys are a Winter Haven FL based team, and now also championship BBQ sauce and rub producer. I began competing as a “pro” in 2004, was a Top 5 team in the Florida BBQ Association (FBA) in 2006 and 2007, was Team of the Year in 2008 and 2009, and am the new and current (2017) Team of the Year. We were ranked the #1 team in the country for all of 2009 by the National BBQ Rankings. We were ranked #1 nationally again in 2013. We compete primarily in the southeast – FL, AL, GA, SC, NC and TN in both FBA and KCBS contests. We have won 61 professional Grand Championships and 48 Reserve Grand Championships. I was hired to go to Brazil to train and help open that country’s first ever American-Style Barbecue restaurant. I have taught professional BBQ classes from FL to IL to AZ, even The Hague, Netherlands. Hundreds of people from all over the country, Canada, and Europe have attended. I’ve been a spokesman for Kingsford Charcoal at the Daytona Firecracker 400 and the Steve Harvey Show. We competed in Season 4 of the TV show BBQ Pitmasters. There are many more honors. But to sum it up, we’ve been blessed.

CATERING: Besides competing, we also offer world class barbecue catering on a limited basis. Let me provide the best barbecue you’ve ever had for your next event – party, wedding, graduation – whatever. All of our meats are slow smoked the old fashioned way on wood & charcoal burning pits. I use combinations of pecan, cherry, oak, & hickory to smoke the meats from 4 to 16 hours, depending on the cut. The end product is far above & beyond anything you’ve ever had at a “BBQ” restaurant. Guaranteed.

Call or email me today to reserve your date & discuss your menu. Or better still, come visit me at a Barbecue Competition & you can sample some.

My BBQ Catering mission is not to be the cheapest.
It is to be the BEST.

I’m proud to announce that (to the best of my knowledge) all of the Florida Publix markets with the Florida Local end cap now have Swamp Boys Original BBQ Sauce in stock! That’s nearly 500 stores! We are so blessed and thankful to be given this opportunity to get our sauce in front of the public with the help of Publix and our independent retailers.

Florida Local End Cap

If your Publix does not have the Florida Local end cap, you can speak with the store manager and ask them to order it in for you. They are happy to do this. Here is the information you need to give them: SKU#244988 and UPC# 86876300022. Our goal is to eventually be in every Publix including the ones without the Florida Local end caps, so any help you can give is greatly appreciated. #SwampBoysNation

I am giving up a seat for any of my Q Schools in the future. The next class is being held Oct. 13-14 in Winter Haven, FL behind the Boy’s Club on beautiful Lake Cannon. Click the PayPal link to make a donation of $25 for the Winter Haven Citrus Center Boy’s and Girl’s Clubs. Each $25 donation will earn you a chance in a drawing for a free seat in my class which is valued at $500. This will stay open until it hits $1,000 for the kids. I will have a live Facebook drawing (Rub Bagby) and notify the winner.

Swamp Boys in Publix Florida Local program

It has been a long process but I am proud to announce that you can now buy Swamp Boys Original BBQ Sauce at selected (205) Publix stores. Publix invited us to take part in their “Florida Local” program which showcases smaller Florida based food companies. Look for us on the Florida Local end cap. And if your Publix doesn’t currently have it, just ask the manager to order it in for you. They will be happy to. Even if you don’t live in Florida, and Publix now has the ability to order it in.

08/10 EDIT: The map is offline. Usage was exceeded and they disabled it. I will be working to create a new map that will not have this problem. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Here is a link to a map showing the Publix stores carrying it (green markers), current independent retailers (red markers), and online only retailers (yellow markers). Zoom in and click on the marker nearest you for more information, or find your city on the list. And thanks for being a key part of the Swamp Boys Nation!

Competition BBQ and a centerfold are terms I would never imagine in the same sentence. Yet the KCBS‘s monthly national publication The BullSheet has managed to pull it off this year. Each month they have been spotlighting a team with a short bio and some fun questions. Swamp Boys are humbled and thankful to have been selected for the May spotlight, which coincidently is National Barbecue Month. Thank you KCBS and Amanda Bowman!
