Rain Doesn't Stop Ypsilanti from BBQ'n!July 1, 2015 It might have rained all weekend, but it didn't cool down the competition at the Sam's Club National BBQ Tour stop in Ypsilanti, Michigan! In addition to the team competition on Saturday, Tour Director, Michael McDearman, also hosted a free BBQ 101" class for the public on Friday night. This was a great way for the public to get involved with the tour!
Besting a packed field of competitors, iBQ'n@theBBQSuperStore.com showed true mastery of the art of low and slow, and claimed the Grand Championship with an overall score of 677.0740 on Saturday. Trailing closely behind, BIG BROTHERS BBQ took home the Reserve Grand Championship with a score of 675.9428. In addition to bragging rights, the teams pocketed $2,000 and $1,500, respectively. Both teams will now move on for their shot at BBQ’s National Championship.
Additional congratulations to the all of the teams who will advance to the Regional event in Madison, Wis. on August 8.
