I might be slightly biased on name because I competed on this team at Memphis in May. But based on my Facebook poll of more than 900 barbecue dorks, this was the winner. And believe me, this team lives up to its name while also placing well this year at Memphis in May in ribs and brisket.
Honorable Mention Team Names:
- The Hogfather
- P-Funk and the Fatback All Stars
- Notorious "P.I.G."
- Slab Yo Mama
- Best Little Boarhouse in Memphis
- South Florida's own White Trash BBQ
