Back-Yard Braggen Rights, Fall 2013

Posted by on in Events


The Grand Champion taking home 1st place and the title of Back-Yard Braggen Rights went to No Sleeves BBQ!  No Sleeves BBQ Team was Todd Flaspohler & Doug "Bon Jovi" Bowers!!  We are in the process of adding their team name to our trophy!!



Our Reserve Grand Champion, taking 2nd place overall in the Back-Yard Braggen Rights was Smokin' Daddy BBQ.  The Smokin' Daddy BBQ Team was Willie & Mercia Schumann, Dusty Ancell & Lynn Ancell.


It all started couple months ago with the question, "Sweetheart, what do you think about Papa Rock Bar-B-Que hosting a smoken event in the Fall?  And with a simple "Yes" Back-Yard Braggen Rights was launched and the planning began!!

We started the day of our 1st Semi-Annual Back-Yard Braggen Rights getting ready for the arrival of the smoken teams.  Eight teams showed up to get their "smoke" on!

The teams were:

  • Allred Family Southern Smoke-N-Sauce
  • Chef Jeff
  • No Sleeves BBQ
  • Oink-A-Doink BBQ
  • Papa Rock
  • The Pit Crew
  • Smokin' Daddy BBQ
  • The Smokers

 Who will take home the title of Back-Yard Braggen Rights Champ?  Thus began a day full of smoken, fun, family and friends!!!

The job of Mama Rock comes with many hats but were it not for my trusty helpers throughout the day I wouldn't have gotten it all done.  Thanks to my hubby Papa Rock and all of our Baby Rock Crew!!  And to the infamous Mustang Sally aka Sara Jackson and her daughter Katie who lent many hands and many hours to assisting me in my endless endeavors!

We served up around 150 meals to all who came to enjoy the day.  We had 9 entries in the Open Class and 6 entries in the Dessert Class.  Many delicious dishes and desserts were served up for all to judge.  Thanks to all the community who came out to enjoy the Pulled Pork Meal and to judge the Open & Dessert Classes!

When folks get together what is a day of family and friends without lots of kids running around doing what kids do!! The kids all played well together and were a delight to watch as they played.  They got to play games and dress up as superheroes and princesses thanks to Girls Rock 2 aka Emma Steward who organized the activities for the kids!!

All of the smoken teams worked feveriously to make the turn in times and get their dishes prepped and ready for the judging tables!  We had 12 judges who judged the entries for appearance, taste and tenderness.  Before the entries arrived the judges were joking and in a jovial mood but once the food arrived the poker faces were on and the mood got serious!

The judges were:

  • Ralph Moore (Ol' Iron Sides)
  • Scott McSwain (Scotty the Body)
  • Ralph Hoppe (The Equalizer)
  • Sara Jackson (Mustang Sally)
  • Mark Wilsdorf (The Meat-E-Ater)
  • Andrea Schumann (Ellie Mae)
  • Cyle Cundiff (The Six String Bandit)
  • Rachel Moore (The Rowdy Rocker)
  • Bev Riley (Olive Oil)
  • Terrie Cundiff (Sugar Bomb)
  • Dave Carpenter (The Widow Maker)
  • Chuck Schumann (Bo Cephus)

Scoring went off without a hitch thanks to my dedicated tallying crew of Camille Steward (Girls Rock), Mitch Schumann and Krystal Reese.  Numbers were crunched and calculated.  

While we calculated the final results, Scott McSwain fed the masses his yummy funnel cakes!  He served them up with all kinds of toppings and plenty of powdered sugar!  He took home the Funnel Cake Master Award!! 

Ron Allred our Master of Ceremonies entertained the crowd with his infamous song "Ron's Song" until we were ready to present the awards.  Ron did double duty for BYBR by cooking with his family and announcing for us!

Awards were ready and the results were in, here are your winners for Back-Yard Braggen Rights!!
