Lotta Bull BBQ

HEAD COOK: Mike Davis

COMPETITION: World Barbecue Championship

QUALIFYING EVENT: SC Festival of Discovery

Mike and Debbie Davis from Marietta, OK are known more by their team name Lotta Bull BBQ than their given names. They have been competing for 19 years, and will be celebrating their 37th wedding anniversary on November 19th. Mike is a 6-Time World Champion and a 4-Time Grand Champion of the American Royal held every year in Kansas City, MO. At the current time Mike has won 88 Grand Championships and 60 Reserve Grand Championships and totals over 1100+ awards, which if you do the math, contrary to what others say, probably makes him the winningest man in BBQ. They qualified for the WFC by winning Grand Champion at the Festival of Discovery in Greenwood, SC. They are the only 2-time Grand Champion at the Festival of Discovery Competition. Mike and Debbie agree that going to Greenwood, SC is one of their favorite contest to compete in. They also want to thank Festival of Discovery workers, Charlie Barrineau, Laura Ackerman and Julie Wilke . They go out of their way to make sure everyone feels at home, and that all your needs are met. The Festival of Discovery also paid the entry into the World Food Championship so Mike and Debbie could go and represent the Festival of Discovery and Greenwood, SC. Be sure to check them out if you are in Las Vegas on November 7-10.
