View Full Version : 2010 Rookie year teams!

I got this idea from the CBBQA site, to check and see how many rookie teams there are for 2010. Rookie team is a team with a head cook that has not been a head cook before for any team, even if different than your current team name.

So, let's start a list shall we? Post your team name, and website if you have one.

I'll start with mine. Until about a week ago, I was just a backyard pitmaster. I've since paid my association dues and am having my first comp (informal) in April.

57 Smokehouse (Alan in GA)

Astra BBQ (QansasjayhawQ)

Big B's BBQ (Big B)

Big Daddy's Bama BBQ (Big Daddy's Bama BBQ)

BigFish BBQ (Tritonman)
- Irving Elks Lodge (IBCA) 10th place ribs

Big JT's Smokin BBQ (indianagriller)

Big Ol' Boys Bar-B-Q (BigOlBoysBarBQ)

Big Poppa Smokers (Biffalo)

Boat-n-BBQ (Boat-n-BBQ)

Bubba's Que Crew (Smoke & Beers)

Chance Daniel's BBQ (WBBQ)

Clay Hill Cookers (Clay Hill)

CrazyQ (crazyq)

Degüello BBQ (Kit R)

Donkey Punch BBQ (Tod Ras)

Fire & Spice (Goddahavit)

Flamin' "Q" Competition BBQ Team (DakotaBBQ)

High Q Cookers (High Q)

Humboldt Smoke BBQ (HumboldtSmokeBBQ)
- Hang Town Q Fest; 5th in Ribs, 4th in Brisket, 5th place overall

iBQ'n (Rich Parker)

JB's BBQ (JBI)

J.C.'s Wicked BBQ (wickedbbq'r)

Jimbo's Hickory Corner BBQ (Badfrog)

Jo Jo's Pullin Pork (bbq ron)

Life of Brine (Redheart)

Porter Mac's Rockin' Q (tmcmaster)

Prove It Bragger BBQ (Thursday)

Rub 'em Raw BBQ (Jeff Selle)

Rub-Won-Out (sitnfat & MoGreen)

Savage Beagle BBQ (iSmoke)

Shotgun Smokers (Shotgun Smokers)

SirPorkalot BBQ Team (SirPorkalot)

Slower Lower BBQ (stallardmark

Smoke Another One (shaneholz)

Smolderin Swine (Smolderin Swine)

Southern Home Boyz (Southern Home Boy)

Swinestone Cowboys (Capn Kev)

The Smokin Albertina's (pizzakngjr)

Thunder Road Smokehouse (TRS)

Two State BBQ (icbateman3)

U-Needa (D.J.)

Whyte House BBQ (Forrest)

Worth Smokin' BBQ (worthsmokin)

Yankee Rebels (mfreeman73)


Mod Note: I think Forrest had a very good idea! We've discussed it and I am going to make this a sticky at the top of the forum so it stays up top. Please add your team information below. if you haven't already added your team to the Listing of Brethren Member Team Names, please do that as well! that is really the master team list. This one is a fun list for rookies (again, no hard definition, it is for fun).

Also, as you compete and start to get calls (let's define that as top 10 in any KCBS category or overall) post aht and I'll add that to the list under your team name. At the end of the year we'll archive this list and start a new one for 2011!

In order to keep the thread clean after I add you to the list i will mark your post as done and then delete the ones that I have done after a day or so. also, please try to keep the discussion to a minimum since those posts will also be deleted as I add names to the list. As the season goes on there will be Roll Call and discussion threads opened for most competitions so you can talk about plans to meet, etc. in those threads. Also, for this list i am going to just show the team name and the Brethren Member name of whoever requests the listing. If yu want more info like location and web site please include that info in your list in the main team name thread.

Oh yeah! Good luck to all of you!

Team name is "Great Pig in the Sky" and it looks like my first comp won't be until late August at the Edwardsville BBQ Challenge. Will be judging several comps until then though.

If anyone's looking for some free help at competitions located around southern Illinois, please let me know. Hoping to do a little apprenticing this summer as well.

Hi, my team name is "Big On the Pig" out of Graceville, FL. We are sponsored by my employer and brothers supermarket Piggly Wiggly. We entered our first competition last weekend in the backyard division of the Tri States BBQ festival in Dothan, AL. I practiced alot and would you believe we took a 2nd in pork, and a 4th in brisket and a 5th place overall! Not bad for our first cook huh?

First year Pro's in KCBS events. We competed in a total of 6 contests this year and felt we had a good year. We are looking for new members to join the team to expand things in 2011 if anyone knows anyone looking for a team in the Indy area.

Our top overall finish was 8th out of 28 teams in Nashville, IN

Chicken - 3rd place in Nashville, IN
4th place in Greenfield, IN
12th place in Murphysboro, IL (44 teams)

Ribs - 2nd place in Murphysboro, IL (44 awesome teams. By far our best victory of the season)
2nd place at the College Football Hall of Fame Ribs Only Cookoff

Pork - 6th place in Nashville, IN

Brisket - 9th place in Jasper, IN

Overall we had an awesome time and a successful season. We are doing great with ribs and chicken and our pork is improving, but we are really struggling with the tenderness and flavor profile for the brisket. Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks Bentley!..yes it was our first comp and yes RGC..and your right we all were walking on air!..the thing that made it even more memorable was that Gene was telling me my ribs were to skinny and the bones are to crooked wich they were by the way so I did my best to straighten them out and cooked them as usual,come award time it gets to the top 5 and i tell my team were done..low and behold 2nd place my jaw was on the floor!.if that was the only call we still would have been really happy but just as I get back to my seat..8th in pork! wow now my blood was really pumping..then brisket I knew it was good but 1st place!!?.. then RGC!..CLOUD NINE!..Ill never forget that one!

Wow. Congrats to all those rookies who did so well last year!

Southern Home Boyz didn't quite fare as well.

First comp in April we came in 52 out of 58 teams overall. Nothing above 17th place. Felt pretty discouraged, but bounced back fairly quickly with the help of a lot of support from the Brethren.

Second (and last) comp of the year in Sept. we improved some: 32nd out of 88 teams overall and took a 7th place walk in pork.

Lookin' forward to 2011. Probably won't do more 'n three or four comps this year, but hoping that what I've learned over last year will show in the scores. We'll see. :wink:

I know this is a thread for 2010 teams but we are a first year team in 2011
really looking forward to giving this competition thing a shot. We did one comp. last year and just did pork butt finished 28th out of 120 teams was kinda happy with that for the first time. I am an executive sous chef at a big country club and have been doing cooking comps for a long time just never BBQ comps. I will never look back :). Other food comps are very very very formal checking measurements on the size of lets say a small dice, with a ruler....enough to just piss you off. I cant wait to get on the BBQ circuit and try my luck. I know i have not done BBQ comps before but have a TON of experience in the kitchen world 25+ years in professional kitchens. If there are any questions i can answer about cuts of meat , or any other product just let me know, would love to help. I have already found a few things available to me from my major food service companies that is not generally available to the public. Anyone can get this stuff just got to get in contact with Major food whole seller. The comps are a blast and i had the time of my life the one i did last year. I cant wait to get to know some of you guys and learn from your experiences. I have a TON to learn, but will be a blast doing it. Our team name is Smokin' Hicks BBQ and just got registered with KCBS. See you guys at the comps. Good luck everyone.
