Sonny’s 2017 Invitational

The Sonny’s Invitational attracts the “who’s who” of barbecue.  When you compete in this “slugfest” you are competing against some of the best teams out there.  So when you place well in a contest of this caliber you should be recognized and that’s why we are giving a big “shoutout” to Mat Griner of the Big Show Cooking Team.

Big Show competes in several Kansas City Barbecue Society (KCBS) contest each year.  Sonny’s is a Florida Barbecue Association contest so things can be slightly different when it comes to flavor profiles.  Flavor profiles change from region to region. So for a North Carolina team to go to a contest like this they have to change things up to have a good showing and that is what Big Show did.

The Results

10th Brisket

9th Chicken

12th Pork

40th Ribs (Oops!!)

13th Overall

Congratulations Mat and Big Show!!!
