Press Release (ePRNews.com) - AUSTIN, Texas - Feb 02, 2018 - Twisted X Brewing Company is pleased to announce that the Tinney Barbeque/Twisted X Brewing BBQ Team, headed by Pitmaster Jay Tinney, has been certified the winner of the Grand Champion of the 2018 San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo Bar-B-Que Cook-Off (“SABBQ”). The team also took first place in the Brisket Competition. The SABBQ is a championship event sanctioned by the International Barbeque Cookers Association (“IBCA”) and features some of the world’s best competitive Bar-B-Que teams.
“We were thrilled to learn we won the Grand Champion title,” said Jay Tinney, owner of Tinney Barbecue. “Like all competition barbecue contestants, I have dreamed about it, but was particularly gratified by winning my first at such a prestigious event and simultaneously intimidated receiving an award in front of several thousand onlookers.”
The IBCA-sanctioned cook-off features 302 competing teams of the world’s best cookers and pitmasters. Tens of thousands of visitors soak up live music, fun activities and great BBQ all weekend. Proceeds from this event benefit the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo Scholarship Fund. “We were thrilled that our first BBQ team sponsorship was at such a prestigious event and congratulate Tinney Barbeque on their success in San Antonio,” commented Hunter Stewart, CEO of Twisted X Brewing Company.
Winning the Grand Champion title earns the team several coveted invitations to other competitions around the country, including the 2019 Houston Livestock Show, Houston, Texas, one of only four “world championships” (the others are Memphis in May, the American Royal and the Jack Daniel’s World Championship); 2018 Austin Rodeo & BBQ Austin Cook-off, Austin, Texas; the American Royal World Series of Barbecue, Kansas City, Missouri; the 2018 Smokin’ on the Rio State Championship BBQ Cook-Off, and an entry into the lottery for a chance to receive an invitation to the 2018 Jack Daniel’s World Championship.
