Who’s new in the Class Room? Orion Coolers…..

That’s who!!! Orion Coolers has joined forces with Lotta Bull BBQ as a class sponsor in its “Tell All” Classes going on around the country. Why Orion, same as Lotta Bull, often copied but never duplicated. Orion Coolers will out perform the other coolers on the market. They come with more built in accessories, unlike some of the others that will nickel and dime you to death. Now, don’t get me wrong, Orion has dozens of accessories you can add, but come standard with more than the others. Want to see one in action? They will be appearing at all of our classes throughout the rest of the year. sign yourself up for a class and come see why we make such a good team, you’ll be glad you did. www.orioncoolers.com

Arkansas Diamond Cup

Excited to announce that Lotta Bull BBQ finished 3rd in The Arkansas Diamond Cup. Be sure and check out their website www.arkansasdiamondcup.com. They have some changes in the works for 2016. Just cook any Arkansas Contest no matter the sanctioning body and earn points. This year they had $1200 in prize money that they spread out for the top 3 finishers and they have hopes of getting more sponsors and pay out more places next year. So if your going to compete anyways, why not cook in Arkansas and have a chance of making a little extra cash at the end of the year. We will post the trophy once we get it in the mail. Congrats to Fire Dancer for winning 1st place and Dad’s Grilling Crew on winning 2nd place.

Diamond Dust Rib Rub

It’s here. Yay!!!!!!!!!!!! Get your own supply of Diamond Dust Rib. We have it available as well as The Kansas City BBQ Store or at Killer Hogs. We have great success from quite a few teams using this on their ribs. We can’t share their names, but it is quite an amazing product. We use it when we compete and have done very well with it, the few times we have competed this year. Sooooooooo, if you haven’t tried it, well now is the time. So just click on store and place your order through us or click on www.thekansascitybbqstore.com or www.killerhogs.com and place that order.

American Royal 2014 is in the books……

photoJD and GuyWell another American Royal is in the books. Didn’t fare as good on the first day but made up for it on the second day. But its always a good time, for the last 16 years its always been our favorite to look forward to. This year we got to take our grandson JD with us and he cooked in the Kids Q and finished 11th overall. We had a 13th Springer Mountain Farms chicken and a 4th, yes a 4th place Compart Family Farms St Louis cut Spare rib!! Thanks Jim Compart and a huge thanks to Strube Ranch Beef for superior briskets, only to be futher enhanced by Butcher BBQ Injections by David Bouska The Royal experience is one everyone should get to do, its a bucket list thang! Here’s a few pictures from our weekend. Oh and got to show off the Mistress to Elvis, yep hes a fan!! And Jackson got to meet Guy!!

Well the past 3 weeks have brought a few 1st places.  We’ve had a 1st in
Chicken, 1st in Brisket with a perfect score and two 1st places in Pork.
Awesome!!!!!  Thanks to you our sponsors.  We’re finally getting it together.
The judges taste has changed over the past couple of years.  We’ve been slowly
adjusting our taste profile.  We are pretty sure that we have finally gotten it
together.  Now we’ll see how the next few weeks go.  We have the best product to
start with and have some of the best seasonings/injections as well.  We have
never been fans of injecting the meat, but this is where the trend has gone.   It’s kind of like computers, we thought they were a fad, but now there here  to stay. LOL
Special thanks to Butcher BBQ, David Bouska for a great product along with Craig
Sharry of Texas Pepper Jelly.  Special thanks also to our meat sponsors, Strube
Ranch wagyu brisket, Springer Mtn Farms for chicken, and of course Compart Duroc
for awesome pork butts and ribs.  We are going to stick close to home until the
last week of June.  We have a lot going on in our personal lives right now, and
need to stay close to OK.  We will head out the end of June to New Mexico for a
couple of weeks then drive on over to Greenwood, SC then Indiana before headed
back to the house the end of July.  We are cooking in Okemah, OK next weekend
and we hope we have good news to share.  Thanks again to all our sponsors, and
hope everyone has a great Memorial Day Weekend.
