Helloooooooooooo remember Our Grand Champions last year? They are back to defend their title of “Grand Champion” of Hogging Up. Pitmaster Dan Hixon and team have a long list of GC’s, in fact for 2012 they were the KCBS Team of the Year. You may have seen them on Pitmasters; these guys take BBQ seriously.

If you live anywhere near the Eastern Part of Maryland, and love good barbecue, then you’ll know who the Sagars are. If not here’s an article. They have a restaurant in La Plata and run a family BBQ restaurant (and use dry rub, a Maryland tradition!) . We’re happy to see another Maryland team enter in!

That being said, we’d like to extend a huge HOGGGGGGGGGGGGING UP Welcome to Danny Sagar on behalf of Texas Ribs & BBQ who will be bringing his big-rig and competing. This will also enter him into the Best of the Panhandle, going against his fellow Marylanders and Virginians! He’ll be cooking with John Saah and perhaps more special guests….
