All the way from Tallulah Falls, GA these impressive young people and their coach, Tom Tilley, a Bloomington native, have accumulated many awards for their BBQ skills. Be on the lookout!

Wink's BBQ

From Bloomington, IN, this backyard BBQ team was started by Pit Master Kyle Winkler in 2012 and has made a name for itself at the Kentuckiana competition. Bring on the local BBQ!
