The Bubba Grills team flips their whole hog during the 2012 Brenau Barbecue Championship. Bubba Grills took fourth runner up in the whole hog category.

The fifth annual Brenau Barbecue Championship May 24-25 brings together 37 different cook teams from four states to battle for Memphis Barbecue Network and Georgia Barbecue Association amateur and professional titles as well as rights to compete the World Food Championship in Las Vegas.

This is the first time that the MBN and GBA teams have competed together at the Brenau festival, now regarded as one of the top regional competition events in the country. MBN participating “professional” teams will compete in three categories of Memphis-style deliciousness: whole hog, ribs and shoulder shank. Although the GBA competition replaces Brenau’s “Backyard Braggart” amateur competition, both professional and amateur teams can participate, serving up Boston Butt, ribs and pork loin. Some competitors though are competing in both MBN and GBA contests.
