Hoggystyle BBQ Team brings home the bacon in MillingtonSeptember 17, 2013
Akin to Pavlov’s theory, the mere utterance of “bacon” is enough to cause one to drool in eager anticipation of snagging a taste of this favorite flavor. For competition teams, not just any old bacon will do, however; it’s got to be Wright® Brand Bacon – the bigger, better bacon. This year, Wright Brand Bacon has introduced its Destination: Bacon Domination program to six KCBS events across the country, divvying out bonus cash prizes to the teams whose bacon dishes win over the judges’ hearts (and taste buds, too). Congratulations to Hoggystyle BBQ Team on their first place Destination: Bacon Domination win at the International Goat Days Festival in Millington, Tenn.
Hoggystyle BBQ Team, led by Danny Fly, received a perfect 180 score for their turn-in of bacon-weaved baskets stuffed with shrimp and grits.
“[Our] inspiration is always winning… and creating chart-topping BBQ and food entries,” said Danny Fly. The team certainly saw the payoff with their bacon dish, which left the judges chattering about the entry long after the turn-ins were cleared from the tables.
Hoggystyle BBQ Team is no stranger to the competition field, having competed for roughly eight years now, and have settled in to a fairly regular habit of bringing home a win.
“We finished in top ten at every [category] here,” said Fly. “Usually, we make it on stage a couple of times. We’ve done real well; we love cooking!”
Hoggystyle BBQ Team’s first place bacon win not only earned them an extra stack of cash, but also an entry to compete at the Bacon World Championship.
“Right now, we’re going back to the drawing board to figure out what exactly we’re going to do,” said Fly. “We’re going to shake it up! Shake the world up with bacon… Hoggystyle!”
Congratulations to Hoggystyle BBQ Team!
