View Full Version : Team Name Suggestions

Hey Folks,


Okay, I get it... I'm jumping the gun here but I can't help myself. I'm the type of guy who likes to plan for the future, so despite the fact that I don't even have a smoker yet I'm thinking of the future when I will be competing.

With that in mind, I need a team name. I have a couple of ideas, but I also have the idea to offer catering down the road as well. So the name needs to work for both a team and a catering company.

Here are my thoughts:

1.) I work for a bank, so I thought maybe Banker-Que.
2.) I live in Buffalo, NY (known as the Queen City, or Nickel City), so either Queen City BBQ or Nickel City BBQ.
3.) Every night as I tuck my daughter into bed, she always asks me to "Rub back daddy?" I thought that would be a good team name, but maybe not a good one for the catering side.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Jamo

I'll keep thinking it over, but in the mean time Nickel City is already taken... Great group of guys! Check them out - they usually do at least RocCityRibFest and Oinktoberfest.

What is the name of your town or community where you may be catering and competing? See if there any local "themes" out there that people relate to or are familiar with and then adapt your team name to that. This way once you're up and running you'll already have a little name recognition from the local folks. :cool:

I first started competing under "SouthPaw BBQ" then I teamed up with a friend of mine to form "Left Hand Smoke". When I decided to go into catering I chose "SouthPaw BBQ" because of it's marketability to the local sports community. :-P

How about "Smokin' Buffalo BBQ"...it would make a killer logo...:cool:

Good luck...:biggrin:

Great Ideas Folks!

I think my favorite one so far is the Lake Effect BBQ. Its fun and also works as the potential catering name.

Looking at the back rub names just gave me a vision of going up for a call and hearing snickering about "happy endings". So those are out.

Wide Right BBQ is also good though.. Urgh, too many good names.

Sean,

Happy New Year.

I just went through your websites. I did not realize the complex BBQ life you lead. Sorry for not meeting you more formally in 2009. I will correct that in 2010.

The "Atomic Buffalo Turds".

Defined as a smoked jalapeno (doesn't have to be though, use a poblano, habanero etc if you wish) stuffed with cheese (usually cream cheese), and wrapped in bacon.

The Piggy Bank BBQ is too close to another team out there already, the Piggy Bankers. Great name, but I'm not going to take another team's name. I'm sure the Pork Pulling Plowboy's lawyer will agree with me on this one.

I'll be honest folks, I am really leaning towards either Lake Effect Smoke or Lake Effect BBQ. I have a mental picture of the logo: A pig, cow, and chicken with icicles hanging from their snout/face/beak huddled around a fire.

Now I just gotta finalize the name, and figure out how to get the logo done.

I have to agree that Lake Effect Smoke has a nice sound. And doesn't conflict with current team names.

There are a few comps in WNY. Good Smoke runs Roc City Ribfest (May - Rochester), I run Boston Hills BBQ Fest (June - Boston - South of Orchard Park), Honcho runs Smokin' Eagles (August - Niagara Falls), George runs Oinktoberfest (September - Clarence). BBQ is alive and well in WNY! C'mon out!

FYI - I have a comp/catering smoker for sale. Currently on Buffalo CL under Backwoods Smoker.

It might not conflict with team names, but I saw a DDD show on food network and they went to a Lake Effect Diner in Buffalo. You may want to avoid confusion.

How about Buck or Two BBQ.
Or a comp team name of “Victorious Secret”

You can find some cool names on the Bull Riders circuit. If you Google Bull names you get a list of all the competition Bull Ridding Bulls. Some are pretty cool.
