Local BBQ team wins Grand Championship

TIFTON — The Rescue Smokers of Sycamore, Robby Royal and Raymond Poore, won the BBQ Pitmasters Grand Championship and a $50,000 prize, as well as an invitation to the Kingsford Invitational BBQ Competition later this year. "We beat an amazing Kansas City team, Squeal Like a Pig.  We had to cook chicken, ribs, pork butt and brisket in the championship round. The judges threw us a huge curve ball unlike any other competition – we had to have all four meats ready at the same time and all four in the same turn in box.  Hearing our name called as BBQ Pitmasters Champion was a BBQ Dream come true," Royal said.
