The Five Best Competition Barbecue Team Names
Competition barbecue is serious business, with prize money and, perhaps more important, bragging rights at stake. But you wouldn't guess that from the team names, which often use double entendres as if they're saucing their meat.
Most competitions, such as the Jack Daniels Invitational, involve competing in categories such as pork ribs, pork shoulder/butts, beef brisket, and chicken for the title of grand champion. But here, we're looking for the grand champion of pork jokes, so below are our five favorite team names.
