2012 was a great year for RSS BBQ and our Competition Season. We accomplished several of our goals and we still have some work to do.

We got our first Grand Championship at the UP Hog Wild Festival in July. We also got a little redemption in the Sam’s Club Series after 2011’s last place finish in Chicken we got a 4th place call this year in Chicken, but it was not enough to push us to the next round.

MT – I know it has been a while since I last posted in our blog, and a lot has changed since then. So I would like to address some of those recent changes.

Sponsorship- We have entered into a Sponsorship agreement with Bar’s Leaks and Rislone for a 2 year deal. They have been OUTSTANDING to work with. I am so glad that we are working together.One last word on sponsorship, we are always looking for associate sponsors, so if you are a potential sponsor (It doesn’t have to be food related) or know someone, we offer a great sponsorship package.

Competitions – We have competed in 2 comps so far. We are seeing improvement with each event and we are very excited for the future.

Media – We have had some serious media exposure of late. I was a feature article in the Flint Journal on Fathers Day, and Steve and I got a chance to do a live segment on Fox 2 Detroit on 7/2/2010. Also Scott got some publicity for his 33 years of service as a police officer!!  Links for all can be found below:
