It’s all about the Que!

Posted on

With less than 3 weeks to go until our 1st BBQ competition (What BBQ competition, you ask. Check this post out.) we have been working hard on researching and perfecting our talent. We attended our 1st BBQ competition a couple of weeks ago to get a better idea of what exactly we got ourselves into and now we are really hooked and super excited about our introduction into the competition world.


The men ready to GO eat some Que!

We went to the Festival of Discovery in Greenwood, SC and if you have never been, we highly recommend it. It was the perfect 1st BBQ competition for us to scope out.Β  It was well organized and with over 85 competitors we were able to get a better grasp on how BBQ competitions work. We sampled about 15 different pork/brisket but we still think ours is the best. πŸ˜‰

The set-ups were quite impressive and a tad bit intimidating but we all have to start somewhere. And we are starting now….and small.No converted RV’s for us, at least not yet.


This is Bubba Jack’s set up and more our speed.


One day….

After attending this wonderful BBQ competition, and seeing the logistics, next on the agenda: smokin’ some Que!
We’ll let the pictures do the talking:


Need we say more?

Mattox Q is on it’s way to becoming known outside of our small town. We have entered a BBQ competition and we are spending our summer perfecting the recipes and learning the ins and outs of our new smoker. Our first big trial run will be Friday, so far we have played around with it, tested a few things out but Friday it’s on…we are catering a baby shower/4th of July lunch. πŸ™‚


Our new toy!

We are not under the illusion that winning the competition is well…a long shot but we are giving it all we got and it’s one step closer to our restaurant dream. πŸ™‚
If you are in the Athens area the weekend of August 15th, then stop by the Classic City BBQ Festival to try out some unforgettable Mattox Q!
