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.

We are happy to announce that starting some time near the end of next week, the fine folks at Big Poppa SmokersBPS – will be the exclusive online retailer for Swamp Boys BBQ Sauces! Well almost exclusive, we will still maintain our store here at Swamp Boys and sell along with our sauce, our very popular Swamp Boys team t-shirts and visors.

If you’re not familiar with BPS you should be, they are all that! First and most important is customer service, and theirs is top notch. I know from first hand experience. And great customer service can be hard to find these days, but not at BPS. The other great thing at BPS is their shipping. All orders over $40 ship for FREE. All other orders ship for a flat fee of $9.00. Anywhere in the continental USA! So that is a win/win for everyone.

There is one small catch, but it really is a plus in the end. To make it so BPS can have fair margins, I’ve had to bump the sauce prices up a little bit. But on my site I have lowered the shipping rates from $1-$2 so you will see a very minimal change if any. But over at the BPS store, you will be saving on shipping all over the place so you will actually be getting more bang for your buck on every order. So in the end it’s a plus for our customers. If you have any questions please email or call me.

Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who has ordered and for all of the great feedback. It’s been amazing so far, and we want to keep it going! And please still order from us here at Swamp Boys every now and then. We like hearing from you and Amy loves filling orders!

Swamp Boys BBQ sauce sales have exceeded my expectations so far, thanks to everyone who has ordered! We have shipped to 24 states, many of which are already reporting back that they have won money with it competing. Bottom line is people are really liking it. This is not your ordinary barbecue sauce! If your area is not represented on the map yet, what are you waiting for?

I’m happy to announce that there will be a Swamp Boys Q School held in Calhoun GA, July 12-13, ’14. The class will be held at the Calhoun KOA campground. The owner there has stated there will be special prices on campsites and cabins for Q School people. There will be a clubhouse available if the weather gets bad.

We will start at noon on Saturday and go until supper time taking breaks as needed. Around 6-7pm I will host a smoked prime rib dinner. I will provide the meat and potatoes and ask those in the class to bring a side dish or dessert to share with the group. After we eat class is over, but you are welcome to stay and socialize for a while. At 7:30am Sunday morning we will begin again and go until we are finished, usually around 2-3pm. I will stay until all questions have been answered. In addition to the supper, each student will also receive a class t-shirt and a goody-bag full of my sponsor’s products. The bag alone is usually worth $50-$100.

Swamp Boys Q School in Clermont FL, 03/02/14

Swamp Boys Q School in Clermont FL, 03/02/14

We had a group of 27 passionate barbecuers converge in Clermont FL this past weekend to take part in my Q School. Many were from FL but others travelled from GA, SC, NC, OH, and PA to attend. We were blessed with beautiful weather and lots of fellowship while we discussed the finer points of barbecuing at all levels. Everyone seemed to have a great time and really enjoy themselves. Expect to see some amazing food coming from these cooks in the near future!

A special thanks to our Q School sponsors who donated their award-winning products for everyone in the class: Big Poppa Smokers and Simply Marvelous, Butcher BBQ, Wicked Que, Bad Byron’s Butt Rub, 3 Eyz and Swamp Boys BBQ Sauce.
