Our Championship Sauces, T-shirts, and Visors

Swamp Boys on BBQ Pitmasters!

ABOUT: Swamp Boys BBQ is a Winter Haven FL based professional barbecue cook team, and now championship BBQ sauce 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 have been in the top 5 since then. We were ranked the #1 team in the country for 67 straight weeks, including 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 over 45 Grand Championships and over 37 Reserve Grand Championships. We won the World Championship in Pork Shoulder. I was hired to go to Brazil on 2 different occasions 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, and hundreds of people from all over the country and Canada. I’ve been a spokesman for Kingsford Charcoal at the Daytona Firecracker 400 and the Steve Harvey Show. We’ve been selected to compete in Season 4 of the TV show BBQ Pitmasters. There are many more honors. But to sum it up short and sweet, 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.

The class seat project is over but donations
will still be accepted through 
May 25.
Thanks to everyone for their support of Jim & Jan!

Killer B’s wins Sam’s Club

Good friend Jim Burg from Evans GA was rushed to a hospital from a BBQ contest almost 4 weeks ago with what turned out to be major pancreas issues. It happened out of nowhere. He is still in the hospital, trying to turn the corner and begin recovery. It has been very slow at best with lots of challenges.

To try to help out financially a little, I am going to give away a seat to my upcoming June Q School to someone randomly selected from a list of donors. This is not a raffle, because PayPal doesn’t allow raffles. So I will collect forty (40) donations of $25 each. After all the donations have been made I will blindly draw a donor’s name and that person will be invited to my class for free, as a thank you for helping Jim and Jan. I will mail a $1,000 check to Jim and Jan on behalf of everyone who donated. And a huge thank you to everyone else who makes a donation to help these great people. God Bless!

Robin (L) and her sister Tammy at Moffitt Cancer Center receiving first round of chemo.


We were all sad to find out that our teammate and great friend Robin has breast cancer. She has begun treatment at Moffitt Cancer Center and she will beat this. To help with the financial stress that comes from this, we are offering these Swamp Boys breast cancer tee shirts. All proceeds will go to help Robin with copays, travel expenses, and raising her grandchildren.

I will submit the final order Monday morning, 5/11.  They will all be shipped as soon as I get them from the printers. Prices include shipping. Thank you all for your support and helping Robin beat this.

UPDATE: People were requesting a “Donation” button, so here it is:
