Congratulations to Good Smoke BBQ, the 2013 New England Barbecue Society Team of the Year! The Rochester, New York based team and pitmaster Brian Wemett sealed the deal by winning the grilling contest this past weekend in Harvard, slipping past Smokin' Hoggz to win the society's top honors. Congratulations to Smokin' Hoggz as well, who led the standings for most of the year and finished second overall. Thanks to all the teams who participated in the NEBS Team of the Year program this season!
