Barking Pig BBQ
HEAD COOK: W Bryant Morton
COMPETITION: World Barbecue Championship - CBA Division
Barking Pig BBQ is a Competition/Catering/Concession team located in Flat Creek Tennessee. Being firefighters/first responders, Barking Pig BBQ was born out of the joy and camaraderie of smoking butts for our annual volunteer fire department fundraiser. We started competing in 2017 and invested in a concession/competition trailer the following year. We enjoy all of the aspects of smoking meat and creating side dishes for festivals, weddings, competitions, meat sales from the farm, charity events, and street-corner pop-ups. We mostly compete in KCBS BBQ and SCA Steak events. Our BBQ sauce- Barking Pig Signature Squealin' Sauce- is a favorite with the locals in our region. I am Bryant Morton, a veterinarian in Lynchburg Tennessee by day, a beef producer at home, and an enthusiastic foodie 24/7. My team qualified for this event by having the highest combined chicken and rib scores (353.7 out of 360) out of over 100 teams at our favorite competition- Smoke on the Falls in Gadsden, Alabama. We snagged a first place trophy in Backyard Chicken, a second place finish in Backyard Ribs, a first place in the ancillary 'Cheeseburger in Paradise' Competition and a sixth place in the Beer Can chicken event. We were the Backyard Grand Champions! Competing at the World Food Championship has been a long-time dream. Barking Pig BBQ is proud to represent and encourage amateur cooks everywhere, who also have a dream!
