King of the Smoker December 13, 2014

La Quinta, California

By: Sylvie Curry

Congrats, to Sterling Ball and family on an amazing KOS 2015. Most importantly, we applaud your efforts for raising $1.35 million for the Casey Lee Ball Pediatric Kidney Foundation. Twenty–two years ago, Casey Lee Ball was given the gift of life by his dad, Sterling with a gift of a kidney. Along with the UCLA Medical staff they were able to save young Casey’s life.

The KOS is really a fun and unique way to raise money for this wonderful charity. What could be a better way than bringing twenty-four of the World’s top competitive and legendary BBQ teams to the La Quinta resort to compete for $50,000. The contest is pretty old school in that teams are not allowed any electronics other than a light and an instant read thermometer. So, there are no pellets, pitminders, etc. in this contest.

The team list was as follows:

1. Pellet Envy

2. Smoking Triggers

3. Jamie Geer –Jambo Pits

4. One2BBQ

5. Smoke Me Silly

6. Iowa’s Smokey D’s

7. Big T’z Q Cru

8. Shake and Bake BBQ

9. Tippy Canoe BBQ

10. Pig Skin BBQ

11. Wine Country Q

12. Little Pig Town

13. Blazin BBQ

14. Lucky’s Q

15. Gilly’s BBQ

16. Swamp Boys

17. Clark Crew BBQ

18. The American Dream BBQ Team

19. Sweet Swine of Mine

20. Quau

21. TrueBud

22. 3eyz BBQ

23. Warren County Pork Choppers

24. Simply Marvelous BBQ (Number 1 in California TOY standings and sole California team in this event.)

This not only was a first class event featuring Rodney Crowell and Bill Murray, but a learning environment for the guest coupled with samples of BBQ delicacies from the teams to the guest and/or an awesome meal provided by Operation BBQ Relief. Speaking of OBR they made approximately $5000, which in turn Big Poppa Smokers quadrupled.

I talked to Steph from Simply Marvelous BBQ and he spoke of having “the cook.” This is something I have never heard him say after cooking against him for years. Steph would later get a 4th place call in pork.

The top seven teams were called with multiple teams with multiple calls, but the top seven for this contest were as follows:

1. Iowa Smokey’Ds

2. Big T’z Q Cru

3. Tippy Canoe BBQ

4. Blazin BBQ

5. Simply Marvelous BBQ (He has placed in the top five multiple times this year with just one or two calls)

6. Warren County Pork Choppers

7. Shake and Bake BBQ

Congrats to Sterling, his family and the Red Coats from Big Poppa Smokers on the best and most prestigious BBQ invitational on earth.
