Going to the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway July 3? Make sure you come by the Kingsford site for some cooking demos with the Swamp Boys! Friday afternoon you’ll learn some pointers that you can use at home on how we prepare our World Championship BBQ Pork. After the demo we’ll be handing out some pulled pork sliders for you to sample. We’ll do it all again Saturday morning, then Saturday afternoon come watch as Marcos Ambrose joins us to share some of his grilling secrets. The #47 Kingsford car will be there, and there will be lots to see and do. Make plans to stop by and say hi!

5th Chicken, 5th Ribs, 9th Pork, 1st Brisket, GRAND CHAMPION/32 Teams

1st place Brisket

Grand Champion!

I got to go to this contest it’s first year and had a great time. I missed going up there last year, so I was happy to see that it worked with my schedule for this summer. The drive up was 8 hours and I arrived around 10:30pm. I got out of the truck and right away felt the heat and humidity. It was still 86 degrees at 10:30 at night! Needless to say the heat was the talk of the weekeend with highs in the low 100’s during the day.

I wasn’t real happy with what I turned out, it seemed like the raw product wasn’t real good to begin with. Guess that shows what I know! The judges liked it, and the Swamp Boys earned their 4th qualifier towards the Jack Daniel’s Lucky 7. It’s gonna be real tough to get there at this point, but I’ll sure give it a try! Thanks to Elba for all the hospitality 🙂

Ranked 3rd in the National BBQ Rankings, 4th in FBA TOTY

Here’s what they are saying about the first class:

“Taking your class absolutely improved our scores and my wife and I couldn’t be happier….Thanks again for offering your time and experience to teaching others to perfect the Art of BBQ.  It was well worth the money spent.” Greg P, FL

“Just wanted to let you know that your school shed a lot of light on different cooking technics. I cooked in my first contest since the school,Dade City. I got three calls, chicken 9th, brisket 8th and pork 7th, my best finishes yet.”  Doug B, FL

“All and all it was a kick ass class.  Would definitely take it again.” Jon W, FL

“Annette and I enjoyed your class tremendously, and learned a lot…” Gerry B, FL

“Loved the class have been telling everyone I see how great it was, if you decide to have another in FL I have several students lined up for you.” Greg B, FL

“I have to say I really enjoyed the class and I met some great people that I hope to meet again when I start cooking FBA and KCBS.” Alec C, Texas

“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, FL

I know this class helped me out a lot. I have been to three competitions since I took the class and have walked at all three to include a 1st place ribs…Well worth it if you are struggling a little. Larry G, Texas

Awesome class and first rate all the way. I’m still trying to unscramble my pages and pages of notes. 24 hrs of non-stop bbq info. Believe me, there were a lot more than 1 or 2 “Ahhhhhhhh, so THAT’s how they do it!” moments. I’ve got some great information now but if I don’t progress, it’s nobody’s fault but the man in the mirror. Frank O, AL
