Boar's Night Out
HEAD COOK: Eric Hodson
COMPETITION: World Barbecue Championship
QUALIFYING EVENT: Open Registration
BNO started in 2006 as a group of single guys that liked to cook and loved to party! Our focus shifted from the party to preparing world class BBQ in 2010. In 2011 we won a few Grand Championships, several top 5 finishes and placed 3rd in MBN team of year points. Our hard work finally paid off in 2012 when we won several Grands (2 of which were coveted sweeps!) and were named the MBN Team of the Year, as well as Hog, Shoulder and Rib Team of the Year - a feat never before seen in MBN! We came out on top and repeated this success in 2013- again being named MBN Team of the Year, as well as Hog, Shoulder and Rib Team of the Year. Throughout those years we also won multiple state championships in MS, TN, IL and VA! We remain a top team on the MBN circuit and have started spending some time in the KCBS circuit as well. In our off-time, we like to give back by volunteering our time and expertise to the Shriner's organization, Ronald McDonald House, Wounded Warrior Project, and Operation BBQ Relief, as well as many local fundraising events.
