The family-oriented fun associated with competitive barbecue cooking is causing quite an aroma of success for Walterboro. Good weather on Friday evening and Saturday at lunchtime helped bring in a record crowd to this event that was the vision of Wayne Keith. During this third edition of Smoke In The Boro, brought to fruition by The Colleton Center and Coastal Electric’s Operation Round Up, the most cooking teams to date came to town from Georgia and the Carolina’s to be judged against the best of the best.
Choosing a non-protein menu item seemed to work well for the Pimp My Pig team from Batesburg-Leesville in S.C., producing a blueberry cheesecake the smoked the competition by winning the Friday night cook off. Owner Dean Price was proud of his prize and went on to cook some tasty cue the next day too. There is a People’s Choice winner on Friday and that went to team Smoke-N-Carolina and pitmaster Mark Spurling for their flavorful chicken wings.

Its worth noting that this team is the 2015 State Champion according to the S.C. BarbecueAssociation, which shows that the best teams are coming to cook in Walterboro. Third place goes to Ultimate Tailgaters BBQ from Aiken, S.C. and pitmaster Chris Fulmer.
