At this point, i have no plans on fielding a team of my own for sanctioned comps, but i may cook some local rib cookoffs next year. I want to come up with a team name more for fun than anything. Here's some ideas... I've looked them up at the BBQ team name site that was posted a few days ago (www.bbqteamnames.com) and none of them came up there. Have any of you guys seen these names or something similar? Also, which one do you like best?

In no particular order...

1. Smokin' In The Suburbs (my forum tag line)

2. Blues Qs (ya know, like the kids show Blues Clues) I love blues...

3. Sweet Blue Q Crew (ties in the blues and it rhymes)

Any other suggestions?

that one came to mind, but I think there was a team at the Shannon comp with that name, or one that was very similar.

I did think about "Pokin' the pig" but I wouldn't be able to wear my team hat in public... :D

Remember the show "Hee Haw"? Roy Clark and Buck Owens used to do this "I'm a pickin' and I'm a grinnin'" thing... how about "Pickin', Grinnin' and Qin'"? It keeps with the music and fun theme...

Ron's Barbecue Team

Reminds me of Ron White... "Ron's Big 'Ol Farkin' Building" :lol:

Hey Ron, keep in mind too that the Web site you're referring to is a good source for ideas but not all BBQ teams have registered there. I was going to but I'm not paying for it when I had to pay KCBS to join also! Fark that!

There's no such thing as too close!

There's Oink, Cackle, and Moo! and Oink, Cackle, and Moo II! There's Swamp Boys and Swamp Water Boys, etc.

If you pick a name and it winds up duplicated in another part of the country it's no big thing. I wouldn't try to take Big Bob Gibson or Jack's Old South :D but be primarliy concerned with regional duplication. Also, just change spelling on one word, or add a location, etc. to make it "unique".

The registry is someone's attempt to make a buck. It is NOT sanctioned by KCBS or wasn't last time I checked. You'd be better off to check with your state association or one of the regional organizations to see if you're duplicated.

Also, just add your name or town to the name you like: Ron's Smokin' & Jokin', or Ron's Piggin' & Grinnin', etc.

I understand that there are a lot of regional teams that I may never see, but I wanted to try to be unique just in case. That way, when I am on Food Network, you guys will know that its really me, not another team with a similar name! :D :D :D

I'm leaning towards Smokin' In The Suburbs or Ron's Sweet Blue BBQ right now.

Maybe I should put up a poll... :D

watch out here.

Your team name remains in KCBS registry for the year. it determins your overall standing at the end of the year, so if you DO have a duplicate, it will throw off the standings and you will combine your scores.

I've always liked the movie,man on fire, its about a hit man going around killing bad people for revenge. the hit mans name was creasy.
how about " Pig On Fire" the logo could be a picture of a pig all blacked out with red flames behind him with a fork and knife in each hand with the words "greazy pig" under him then you could put burning up the competition one at a time

Don't think that is really a contest cook at all--but did have a streaming blues site a couple years back---think he is still on the bbq mailing list--gave me a few good cd's in exchange for some jelly--nice guy

OK... Came up with another idea... Years ago, an old friend gave me the nickname "Buff" (acronym for Big Ugly Fat Farker, an sirforce nickname for the B52, i think. its been years, so I may have forgotten). So... Anyway, how about...

Buff's BBQ

or

Buff's Butts & Blues (or just Buff's Butts)

Hey I was just on a trip up in northwest Missouri and came across a pool hall/beer joint called "Right on Cue". I immediately thought it was a BBQ place until I saw the logo. Anyway, I think "Right on Q" or "Right on Que" would be a cool name.

That is a great name... Unfortunately...

Not that www.bbqteamnames.com is the ultimate source, but it has been used.

Ron, it makes me wonder if they've let their registrations lapse. Maybe "Right On Q" didn't continue in cooking but they're still registered at bbqteamnames.com. If it was something you wanted to use, I'd definitely check with KCBS anyway. There's always a chance they are no longer active.

Or try to track down the folks that have used it in the past to talk to them about it. Might be a little uncomfortable to be cooking next to some of their friends if they felt the name had been swiped.....

OK... I promise i won't bug you guys with this for much longer... One of my daughter's friends is very good at charicatures (or however ou spell that), and she drew a very cute smiling pig face. It started me thinking... How about...

Smiling Pig BBQ

and use her drawing as part of the logo? An example using standard clip art is below. Her drawing is pencil on paper right now.

Or, thinking of the Brethren logo, how about...

Snortin' Pig BBQ

I know... these have NOTHING to do with my earlier thoughts, but I like them... They are clear in the team name database. Anyone see them in comps?
