Ponca City, OK (PRWEB) September 21, 2009
Six of the Kansas City Barbeque Society's top ten ranked teams climbed to the top while smoking on Fast Eddy's by Cookshack smokers.
Top-ranked Pellet Envy, Iowa's Smokey D's, Butcher BBQ, 4 Legs Up BBQ, I Smell Smoker, and Pork Pullin Plowboys dominated the top ten rankings. Smoke on Wheels, Smoky Mountain Smokers, and KC Can Crew placed in the top 20.
Says long-time champion Ed "Fast Eddy" Maurin, designer of the Fast Eddy's by Cookshack smokers, "Serious competitors have made smoking with pellets a growing trend. Competitors cite consistency of results as a major factor, along with the reliability of thermostatically-controlled heat. These guys go to bed and get a good night's sleep while others are up all night tending the fire."
Love of cooking and competing drives teams, but the cash awards help pay the bills. Carolyn Wells, Executive Director of the Kansas City Barbeque Society, major contest sanctioning organization, estimates that prize money will total about $2.2 million in 2009.
