As some may have heard from various social media outlets or via press release, Baby Got Rack competed at the Iowa State Fair barbecue contest in the Combination category last Tuesday and brought home the championship.
Word on the street is that we were very close to winning the Grand Championship, but fell just short because we didn’t have our own barbecue sauce. An oversight that has been remedied. 4X over.
Here are a few photos from the day.
We were set up and ready to rock by 5 AM.

Chicken and pork loin on!
IPTV setup a timelapse camera in our booth, but didn’t use the footage in their show.

The Grand Champion Judges
Scott receiving his award. If we would’ve won Grand Champion, he would’ve gotten that crown.
I also took some pictures of the preparations, but we don’t want any of the trade secrets going public.
If you’re sad you missed Baby Got Rack’s most recent competition, we will be competing again during the Pufferbilly Days barbecue contest. We will be looking to defend our People’s Choice Award. We have a few tricks up our sleeve for this one. An ace in the hole from a marketing standpoint. Almost as good as our trademark fedoras.
Some come up and try our free samples on Sunday, September 11. Downtown Boone. Follow the smell of smoky and goodness. Vote for Baby Got Rack! The one vote you can cast this fall that you won’t regret later.
