The Smoke Hunters were in Ypsilanti, Michigan over the Labor Day weekend for a Sam's Club National BBQ Tour Local Qualifier. The top 6 teams of the 30 teams competing move on to the Regional competition in Madison, Wisconsin. We finished 1st place in Chicken, 9th place in Ribs, 1st place in Pork, 14th place in Brisket and took home another "Reserve Championship" Trophy (30 teams). This means we will be moving on to compete in the Sam's Club Midwest Regional in Madison, Wisconsin on September 16th and 17th. Our Team of the Year (TOY) Standings are #44 for Chicken, #43 for Ribs, #58 for Pork and #100 for Brisket and Overall we are #26 in the country for teams with 6 - 12 contests. Our next contest in Madison is an "Invitational", so there will be no TOY points associated with it.
