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.

Competition Updates Continued

It’s was nice to get back home.  We drover over and did the Shawnee, OK cookoff where we took 7th pork and ended up 15th overall.  We were back home Saturday night.  What a great feeling to be home for a while.  It’s been a hectic year with Sponsors and family.  We hope we get all back on track before too long.  Back to work.  We headed over to Stillwater, OK at the Elks Lodge.  This is a contest where they love or hate you.  Last year we won this event, but this year we took 18th overall with a 6th place chicken.  Not sure we will go back.  We have seen more 6’s and 7’s on appearance than ever before this year.  You would think that after 19 years in this sport that we would know how to make a box.  On to the next weekend.  We drove over to Enid, OK where we ended up 10th overall with a 7th chicken and 10th brisket.  Not a bad day.  Enid is a lot of fun, and they do a great job at this event.  We headed back home again.  This is fun.  We headed over to Arkansas City, KS where we got our butts whooped.  Butts still burning over this one.  We are back home, and getting ready to head to Hot Springs, AR on Thursday.  We hope to have good news to share and hope all have a great weekend.
