I’m helping a good friend of mine sell his beautiful BBQ trailer. He runs his own business and is slammed for the foreseeable future. This is a sweet rig, with very little use. It has been parked for about a year.

Email me if you have any questions.

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!

Swamp Boys bbq team had a very blessed year in 2017. The experiences I get to have with friends and family are truly unforgettable. I’m so thankful. I’m especially thankful for earning the Florida BBQ Association Team of the Year ’17. This marks my 3rd time winning it, in two different decades. Here’s my year by the numbers:

  • 28 contests in 5 states – FL, GA, AL, TN, and CA
  • FBA TOTY
  • 7 Grand Championships, 3 Reserve Grands
  • 19 Top 5 Overalls
  • 14 category 1st place calls
  • Vended as well as competed at 4 contests
  • Taught 3 Swamp Boys Q Schools

Final TOTY Standings. I was in 2nd place up until the final contest.

One of the things that won’t show up in the numbers that I’m really proud of was earning an invitation to every major invitational in the country. The American Royal, Sonny’s, The Jack, and the King of the Smoker. We were able to travel and compete in all but the American Royal.

Regarding KCBS I was able to compete in 5 contests. Out of over 2,200 teams in my division (5 or less contests) Swamp Boys placed 8th overall for the year, and we were the 2nd place rib team (Smithfield ribs baby!). I’m pretty happy with that considering 2 of those contests we were vending, which means I was cooking food for thousands of people, as well as the 6 judges.

Finally a big shout out to my amazing sponsors! Products from each of them are integral to my team, and I’m thankful for their support.

  • Deep South Smokers – simply the best quality and performance smokers. 100% usable interior space, the most even temp’d cooker I’ve ever used. Built by hand in the USA.
  • Big Poppa Smokers and Simply Marvelous aka West Coast Offense – some amazing rubs and injections from these 2. I use them every contest. So do the best teams in the country. Proud to be a West Coast Offense team!
  • Nature’s Own Hardwood Charcoal from Basques – Every time I cook. Clean and predictable sugar maple lump. Nothing else. Why would you cook on anything other than all wood?
  • Grizzly Coolers – I’m proud to be an ambassador for the best coolers on the market. Made in the USALifetime Warranty. Try to top that.
  • The BBQ Guru – Hands down the best thermostat/draft system for smokers anywhere. I’ve been using them since they started back in the early 2000s. Makes minding your pit incredibly easy and produces consistent results.
  • Butcher BBQ – David Bouska has lived and breathed meat and BBQ most of his life and his products reflect that. He’s used his knowledge to produce some amazing injections, rubs, sauces and oils. I use his products every contest and am proud to be a Pro Staff team.
  • Smithfield – The best ribs and pork I can put my hands on. They just win. And they are super easy to find locally! Check your WalMart and Sam’s Clubs, they should carry Smithfield products.
  • Mac’s Meats and Produce – My favorite meat place ever! Family owned and operated, quality customer service and prices. Tell them I sent you.
