Smoke-n-Thunder BBQ Classic: Photos From the 2012 Event

An exciting part of the 2013 Wings Over North Georgia event will be the second annual Smoke-n-Thunder BBQ Classic, an official Kansas City Barbeque Society (KSBS) sanctioned competition that will feature approximately 50 teams cooking up their best meat recipes for the judges.

“Team Wicked Que” took home the Grand Champion title during the inaugural 2012 Smoke-n-Thunder BBQ Classic,  which makes them the defending champion. Last year’s event was considered an overwhelming success, marrying an air show to an official KCBS BBQ competition event.  This combination experiment is now attracting the full attention of the KCBS professional competition community, so let’s see who will knock the 2012 Grand Champion “Team Wicked Que” off the top spot after the 2013 Wings Over North Georgia’s Smoke-n-Thunder BBQ Classic is completed.

The competitors will battle it out to show off their chicken, pork, pork ribs and beef brisket entries while competing for a cash purse and prizes exceeding $15,000. The judges are looking for three things: Taste, Appearance and Tenderness. The competition is sure to stir up everyone’s appetites and provide suspenseful entertainment for air show attendees. More details about the 2013 event can be found by click here, but in the meantime, we’ve found some photos from last year’s event we’d like to share. Check out the YouTube video post below.
