June is turning out to be a great month for us in terms of magazine features. First we got a shout-out in O, The Oprah Magazine now we’ve gotten a mention as a runner-up in Southern Living’s 2013 ‘Cue Awards as one of SL Reader’s “Best Rib-Stickin’ Joints”. We were not even on the original voting list and it was write-ins that earned us this honor. Thanks to all who voted! We were hoping for a mention of our Future Legends of BBQ event but are still thrilled with the mention.
Thanks for the write-up in BlueRidgeNow as well. We appreciate the local coverage!
Thanks for all who voted during Southern Living’s “South’s Best Ribs” poll. We had a great showing with some stiff competition. Our real desire was to get exposure for the Future Legends of BBQ kid’s competition and hopefully we did.
Future Legends of BBQ was highlighted in the Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) publication, The Bullsheet, recently. All KCBS members, including judges, competitors, BBQ businesses, sponsors, vendors, etc, receive this members-only publication. We are happy to share the spotlight with the likes of “The Legend” Mike Mills, Jim Tabb and Tommy Houston and to see Henderson County Young Leaders Program (HCYLP) get the recognition they deserve as well.

Preparations for our 2010 Future Legends of BBQ Competition, being held on October 9th are underway! To help you prepare your team for competition, we are holding a FREE interactive BBQ seminar at Hubba Hubba Smokehouse on Saturday, August 28, 2010 from 8:30AM-11:30AM.
Join Starr Teel, Jim Tabb (founder of the Blue Ridge BBQ competition), KCBS judges, and other “experts” in the field, for a morning of information on topics including: smoke and fire, rubs and meat, and presentation tips for competition. We will have several different types of “live” cookers here for you to see.
We have just received word that our competition is now sanctioned by the Kansas City BBQ Society so our rules will be a little stricter this year! Prepare yourself and your team for competition by attending our seminar.
