We interviewed 10 more competition barbecue teams at the Memphis in May World Championship of Barbecue Competition. Each team offers their top advice and tips for mastering your smoker. Whether you’re a backyard cook or interested in entering the competition circuit you’ll love these behind the scenes interviews.
In this interview, we sit down with the team at Mac’s Smoke Shop: Kevin Kuruc and Jeff Delmastro. In 2017, Mac’s took second place in Whole Hog at the 40th Memphis in May International Festival World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest. In previous years, they have won first place for sauce, as well as 5th and 8th place for whole hog. They also compete in other competitions and have been the Grand Champion and Reserve Champion in competitions like the All American BBQ Festival When Pigs Fly, The Beer Bourbon &BBQ Festival, North Carolina’s Grill’n&Chill’n BBQ Cook-Off, and more. They are well-known for their whole hog barbecue, but they also compete (and have placed or won) in categories like pork ribs, chicken, whole shoulder, pork butt, and beef brisket.
