Big Ron's Competition Cooking!

This page is dedicated to the art of competition cooking.  I showcase my own
personal cook off results starting from January 2007 when I had never used a
smoker.  Several years later and I have been very lucky.  Hope to see some of you
competition cooks and best of luck to you all.

I am also fortunate enough to sponsor several BBQ competition teams.  If photos
have been sent to me I post them.  Below are also Big Ron's VIP Competition
Sponsored teams!  If you have any interest in becoming a Big Ron's sponsored BBQ
team please send me an email to
bigron@bigronswebsite.com with your team name in
the subject line.

BBQ Cook-offs are fun, addicting, and a lot of hard work.  It is always worth it
win or not, but of course it feels better to go home with something.  Best of luck to
all you competing cookers out there!  Thanks and Happy Cooking!
