Competing in professional barbecue contests 30+ times a year can get to be expensive pretty quickly. With meat and fuel prices on the rise, any bit of aid is very helpful. I have been blessed to have Stump and Stump’s Smokers as a major sponsor for several years now. He builds the finest smokers and trailers on the market today. If you live in the FL area and are interested in a Stump’s Smoker or custom built trailer, shoot me an email and I’ll help you out. I am the FL authorized dealer.

Butcher’s BBQ Brisket Marinade is the best tasting marinade deemed by highly skilled and qualified judges from barbecue cook-offs sanctioned by various barbecue associations from around the United States and Canada. I use it exclusively on my briskets, which helps keep me ranked in the top 2-3 in brisket in the country! National BBQ Rankings

1st place Brisket, 9th Overall/38 Teams

I won this contest last year, giving me my lucky #7 for the auto into The Jack. Not so this year. I felt I cooked really well but only managed one call, a first in brisket. I had a friend make the walk for me as I had to leave early to make it back in time for my daughter’s dance recital. She did much better than I did, with every one of her dance numberrs being awesome. 🙂

“I can definitely say that Rub’s class was well worth the money for us. We have competed in 4 FBA contests since Rub’s class and have 1 grand, 2 reserves and 5 category wins to show for it. We learned a great amount from Rub and took a stockpile of notes. He was very detailed and wanted to make sure every question was answered…” Chad W
