This is the page of our website where you will find a collection of each article that is written on our website for each year. In 2016, we had the idea to keep an archive to allow visitors to read back through articles to learn about our various events. Once an article is replaced on the Homepage , that article is moved here.

Smokin' In The Square Starts The Season

The 2019 competition season for Smoke This BBQ began on March 15-16 in Pensacola, FL. In what has become a tradition for the team, the team headed out on Wednesday, March 13 enroute to Smokin' In The Square. This event, located at the minor league baseball park, is a great way to begin the season. The results this season were the best ever for the team. The awards ceremony was cold and windy to sit through but the rewards were worth it. A 4th place pork and 9th brisket was enough to yield a 5th place overall finish marking the best finish Smoke This has achieved in Pensacola.

Season Quickly Approaching

In having a conversation with a teammate yesterday, it struck me that our season is just around the corner. It's hard to imagine in some ways since the holidays have just passed. The truth is, we will be heading to Florida in just a few weeks to begin a new year of competition. After leaving Florida, we will head to Hammond, LA for our annual voyage to the greater New Orleans area for a week of great food and visiting with friends. Then, we will return home to begin the local portion of our schedule. Returning in 2019 after a one year absence is the Lexington, NC BBQ Capital Cookoff. This event was cancelled in 2018 due to a massive fire but is scheduled to be back in April. May brings a change to our schedule in that we will be attending either Sevierville, TN or North Wilkesboro, NC. The NC event is a first-time event. June-August will be slow for us but will include two vending events and a first time contest, being held in West Jefferson, NC. Our fall schedule appears to be a collection of usual events including traditional vend event in Lenoir, NC. The first draft of the schedule includes 15 events that have been confirmed through KCBS. There will be more added as the dates approach.

Stay tuned for further updates as they become available.
