Swamp Boys on BBQ Pitmasters!

ABOUT: Swamp Boys BBQ is a Winter Haven FL based professional barbecue cook team. 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 3 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 have been ranked #1 nationally again here 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 40 Grand Championships and over 30 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 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.

I can’t wait to fire up all 3 and do a full practice run next week. These are top quality and are so easy to cook on. Not to mention the fact that they are sexy beasts! Go check them out for yourself.

Swamp Boys BBQ Sauce is proud to announce that we have teamed up with the state of Florida and the “Fresh From Florida” marketing campaign to help promote our sauces. In the near future you will notice the FFF logo on our labels, which will associate our sauce with “Florida agriculture’s worldwide image of excellence, which has been carefully cultivated and promoted by the FAPC program since its beginnings in 1990.” We are grateful for the help in putting our sauces in front of even more people worldwide in the near future.

the_jack_09We 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 order for the shirts April 6.  They will all be shipped as soon as I get them. 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:





Thank you all!

We had a couple of great out of state Q Schools in the past month. The first was in beautiful Lake Havasu and was a Wednesday/Thursday class, just prior to the Havasu contest. That proved not to be a good choice of days, as there were not too many who were able to take off. But having a small class was lots of fun and we were able to have lots of individual interaction. I had an absolute blast and am thankful for the opportunity.

The second class was held in Ankeny IA, and while the surroundings weren’t as beautiful, the people were fantastic. Thank you Iowa for having me!

Just over a year ago I was invited by Sterling Ball (aka Big Poppa) to become one of Big Poppa Smokers “Elite Teams”. It was an honor then and one that I am still just as proud of today. In fact even more so. You see besides having access to the best rubs and barbecue stuff on the planet, the Elite Teams get to be a part of something that is even bigger. Something that is close to Big Poppa’s heart and believe it or not, even more important than barbecue – helping children in need.

I am proud to announce that last week $1,000 (of $1,500 total) was donated to my chosen charity, kidsPACK.org. This privately funded group packs food for specially identified children to take home on the weekends, and serves as sustenance when they otherwise would have none. All right here in Polk County. And because of the donations we were able to collect earlier in the year, and the money that BPS has given, kidsPACK was able to include the school where I teach in their weekly service. I am blessed to be a part of this. A sincere thank you to Sterling and Big Poppa Smokers for making this possible. Also a sincere thank you to all of the people who answered my call for donations earlier in the year (aka Swamp Boys Nation). It is a great feeling to be associated with people who care, I love you guys.
