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, 2009, and 2017. I was inducted into the Florida BBQ Association Hall of Fame and awarded Lifetime Membership. We were ranked the #1 team in the country for all of 2009 by the National BBQ Rankings, and 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 64 professional Grand Championships and 52 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, to The Hague, Netherlands. Hundreds of people from all over the World have attended. I’ve been a spokesman for Kingsford Charcoal. I’ve competed on the TV shows BBQ Pitmasters and Big Bad BBQ Brawl. We’ve been blessed.

CATERING: Besides competing, we also offer world class barbecue catering. Let me provide the best barbecue you’ve ever had for your next event. 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.

When I first brought my rub to market I had just planned on bbq teams using it, so I only had the one size which is 10.5oz. Now that it’s spread to backyard bbq’ers and into the everyday kitchen, I’ve been asked to offer a smaller size. So here it is, the 5oz bottle! You can find it where Swamp Boys products are sold, and right here at my online store. Enjoy!

Calling on the Swamp Boys Nation!   kidspack

It’s time for #SwampBoysNation to start collecting Chef Boyardee 7.5oz cans to give to kidsPACK!

KidsPack is an “organization dedicated to feeding homeless and hungry Polk County school children by providing them a backpack of nutritious food each Friday to sustain them on weekends.” What better way to make the World a better place than to start right here at home where we have far too many hungry kids. Polk County has one of the highest homeless kids percentages in the country. For many the only meals they get are the free lunch and free breakfast at school. The weekend presents a hungry time for these kids, and Kidspack helps fill it. I’m a newly retired 30 year teacher here in Polk County and I see directly all of the good that Kidspack does for our community.

Follow the Amazon link below (or find your own for 7.5oz can of Chef Boyardee, any flavor) and order what you can to help out. You can have it shipped directly to me, see graphic below for my address. I need to have all deliveries at my house by Feb. 20 so I can load them up and deliver to the Haines City Ribs on the Ridge bbq contest. Thank you for your support!

Swamp Boys feels strongly about being a good community member. For nearly the past 5 years we have put the majority of our charity efforts into helping our local Boys & Girls Club here in Winter Haven. And it’s time to do it again.

I am soliciting donations for our Citrus Center Boys and Girls Club here in Winter Haven by giving away a seat to my BBQ Class, Swamp Boys Q School. My next class is being held Jan. 4-5, ’20, but the winner can redeem it for any class in the future. Click the PayPal link to make a donation of $25 or more for the Winter Haven Citrus Center Boys and Girls Clubs. Each $25 donation will earn you a chance in a drawing for a free seat in my class which is valued at $600. This will stay open until the donations hit $1,000 for the kids. I will have a live Facebook drawing (Rub Bagby) and notify the winner. I will give a check for 100% of money donated to our Citrus Center Boys and Girls Clubs, and Swamp Boys will cover the PayPal fees.

Goal Reached, thank you to all who donated!

Make a New Year’s Resolution to make better BBQ in 2020! Start the new year with a 2 day class learning the art and science of barbecue at Swamp Boys Q School. Perfect for all levels, from the backyarder to the seasoned pro. You will learn how to smoke prime rib, chicken, ribs, pork, and brisket exactly like I do at a competition. We will cover both hot and fast, and low and slow styles. This techniques class is NOT specific to any one cooker, it works for all.

Class will be held behind the Citrus Center Boys and Girls Club located at 2400 Havendale Blvd, Winter Haven FL. We will be set up lakeside. There will be a CCTV setup so everyone sees everything easily.

Class begins at noon on Saturday and goes until dinner time when you are treated to a smoked prime rib meal with all of the fixin’s. Afterwards you can shoot the breeze around the campfire, or retire for the night. Sunday morning we start back at 7:30 and there will be biscuits and gravy, and coffee. You will also get to sample chicken, ribs, pork, and brisket on Sunday – no one goes hungry! Class typically ends around 3-3:30pm or when all the questions have been answered.

These classes typically sell out so register early. $600 includes everything and some swag. Verified teammates $400. Spouse $200. Pay by check to the address on the application. Click here for the application (link fixed). Print and mail in.

To pay by credit card use the below link. Note – you do NOT have to have a PayPal account to use the link. Credit card fees are included in the total.
