The Best Dam BBQ ContestSmithville, MO

BBQ Contest

Overall Reserve Grand Champions

The Burnt Finger crew was in action at The Best “Dam” BBQ Contest in Smithville, MO.  This year the contest moved to a different campground.  Our cook site overlooked the lake, and we thoroughly enjoyed a beautiful sunrise over the water on Saturday morning.

This was only the second contest cooking on our new Cookshack Smokers, but we sure are dialing them in quickly! It’s going to be a fun season and we continue to refine our new processes.

When all was said and done, Burnt Finger BBQ was called to the awards stage for 4th place chicken, 4th place ribs, 7th place brisket, and we were named the Overall Reserve Grand Champions out of 54 teams!
