Dizzy Pig Competition Barbecue Team Stats

Dizzy Pig Barbecue Competition Team in the KCBS (Kansas City Barbecue Society)

About Competition Barbecue Contests

Dizzy Pig competes on the professional circuit in competition barbecue contests sanctioned by KCBS (Kansas City Barbecue Society). KCBS is the world’s largest barbecue and grilling organization with over 20,000 members worldwide. These BBQ competitions are serious and we compete against the best of the best.

At these competition barbecue contests, the judges expect nothing less than expert grilling skills, down to the smoke ring on the meat and that special flavor punch. It’s pretty much like the Olympics of Competition Barbecue; we come prepared to compete and win against some of the best teams in the world. The contests have four categories:

  • Chicken
  • Ribs
  • Pork Shoulder
  • Beef Brisket


Our Track Records

The Dizzy Pig Competition Barbecue Team started competing in 2002. We have competed in 15 states, mostly in the Mid-Atlantic region and surrounding states, and have gone as far as Missouri, Tennessee, and Vermont to compete. Of the 134 contests we have competed in, our stellar results include:

  • 15 Grand Championships
  • 8 Reserve Grand Championships
  • 72 Top Ten Overall Placement
Grand Championship wins earn us invites to the American Royal and the Jack Daniel’s World Championship, where the Dizzy Team was honored to cook among the best bbq pitmasters in the country. Here are some highlights of our career:
  • 7 invitations to the Jack Daniel’s World Championship Invitational Barbecue. Some of our best results at the Jack were:
    – 8th of 77 teams in 2008
    – 10th of 80 teams in 2009
  • 9 invitations to the American Royal. Some of our best results at the Royal were:
    – 18th of 450 teams at 2004 American Royal Open
