Seems like I say this every year, but... WOW, what a year! As you may know, we count only top ten calls at professional sanctioned contests and only calls where Oakridge BBQ rub was used. We don't pad our numbers with backyard contests or calls from sponsored teams using other rubs, like some of our competitor's programs do. I'm so humbled by these team's efforts, I'll just let the numbers do the talking...
