I've said it before so I'll say it again What a great weekend! Grand Champion on
my daughter's 8th birthday! To have so many friends and family there made this a
special weekend. I couldn't have done it without Sadie and her seasoning of the ribs.
Whenever she seasons the ribs Wicked Que scores well. We had 4 top tens led by a
1st in pork.
Also I debuted the new trailer. It was great to have AC! What a way to start
Read what KCBS Rep Ernie Poland wrote about Jug Tavern Festival’s First BBQ Cook-Off
in the Bullsheet. paper
2010 & 2011 Jug Tavern Grand Champion
Pit Bull’s Up in Smoke
This was a "last minute" competition. With less than a week to prepare, we decided
to enter the Jug Tavern Barbecue Festival in Winder, GA on September 11th, 2010.
Having heard about it on Facebook, I couldn't resist the opportunity to compete.
Our team took 5th Overall, with a 2nd Place finish in pork, and a 5th place in brisket,
we placed in the top ten at the number 8 spot with our chicken (not bad, not bad.)
It was a great day with good friends.
Please let the powers that be know that we really enjoyed the Jug Tavern Festival.
We especially liked the People’s Choice. It was nice to have an opportunity to sample
all of the varieties of barbeque without having to stand in line forever or spend
a fortune. That was a good idea!
We went to another local barbeque festival a couple of weeks ago and it didn’t compare
to yours. There was nothing to do, and the lines for barbecue were long. Plus, you
had to buy food tickets in advance without knowing how many you would need or use.
Winder did it right! We will definitely be back next year
Just wanted to thank you again! One of the most hospitable contests I have ever cooked.
You guys did a great job and were GREAT hosts!
Thanks, put me down for next year! If I can help in any way please let me know.

Congratulations on your first KCBS BBQ Contest. Winder put on an outstanding contest
and festival and I was honored to Judge at the first contest. You made all of the
Judges welcomed and the amenities and goody-bag were appreciated. I hope to see
you next year.
