South Pork

HEAD COOK: Scott Burton

COMPETITION: World Barbecue Championship - EAT Division

We are a husband and wife team that lives in Madison, Alabama. BBQ is our hobby and what we do to get away from work. Scott stays up cooking and Suzanne is responsible for building the boxes and doing all the presentation of the meat including walking the entries to turn in. South Pork started competing in professional BBQ competitions in 2004 at the WhistleStop Festival in Huntsville, AL because of recommendations from co-workers. The only thing he knew how to cook when we first started was Pork. We got 5th place in Pork at our very first contest with 56 pro teams. We cooked 6 events that year and were hooked. To date, we have competed in the US as far west as Las Vegas, NV; as far east as Gaffney, SC; as far north as Springfield, KY; and as far south as Daytona Beach, FL. Additionally, we were part of Team that competed at Grill Stock in Bristol, England and won King of the Grill in 2011. In the past couple years we have competed international in two different competitions in Hoofddorp, Netherlands.
