Swamp Boys BBQ
Swamp Boys are a Winter Haven FL based team, and now also championship BBQ sauce and rub producer. I began competing as a “pro” in 2004, was a Top 5 team in the Florida BBQ Association (FBA) in 2006 and 2007, was Team of the Year in 2008 and 2009, and am the new and current (2017) Team of the Year. We were ranked the #1 team in the country for all of 2009 by the National BBQ Rankings. We were ranked #1 nationally again in 2013. We compete primarily in the southeast – FL, AL, GA, SC, NC and TN in both FBA and KCBS contests. We have won 56 professional Grand Championships and 46 Reserve Grand Championships. I was hired to go to Brazil to train and help open that country’s first ever American-Style Barbecue restaurant. I have taught professional BBQ classes from FL to IL to AZ, even The Hague, Netherlands. Hundreds of people from all over the country, Canada, and Europe have attended. I’ve been a spokesman for Kingsford Charcoal at the Daytona Firecracker 400 and the Steve Harvey Show. We competed in Season 4 of the TV show BBQ Pitmasters. There are many more honors. But to sum it up, we’ve been blessed.
