I’m feeling really proud of my good friend and GrillGrrrl contributor, Blake Marcum, whose team won Grand Champion of Memphis In May World Championship Cooking Competition. FYI, this is the Superbowl of Swine, and being named “Grand Champion” means you are the overall winner, having the highest overall score from the judges.
Another big shoutout to my friends The Shed BBQ and Blues joint who placed first place in Whole Hog this year. I’ve captured a quick video of them walking the stage.
Quick shout out to BigBobGibsons BBQ and good friend Chris Lilly who placed 2nd in Shoulder (to Sweet Swine O Mine) and Melissa Cookston of Yazoo’s Delta Q for placing 2nd in Whole hog.
First place in ribs went to High Life on the Hog.
Congrats all of you! I know it was a lot of hard work!
More recap of the experience to come but thought you all would like to see how it turned out!
