The Shed BBQ, led by brother-and-sister team Brad Orrison and Brook Orrison-Lewis, also won first place in chicken wings and whole hog and won the Kingsford Tour of Champions.
“The sauce won it for us. It’s a combination of our sweet and tangy and southern sweet,” said Brad Orrison, co-founder of The Shed BBQ & Blues Joint. “It’s amazing to celebrate this win with each and every ShedHed, our extraordinary sponsors, and everyone who buys the sauce in their grocery store.”
The Shed BBQ competition sauces and marinades are sold in grocery stores nationwide.
Supplying product and financial resources, the Shed’s competition team was supported by Kingsford, Compart Family Farms, Rec Tec Grills and Vision Grills.
“It’s an honor to work with the Orrisons and The Shed,” said Jim Compart, from Compart Family Farms. “We’re proud that our hogs have delivered the highest quality product, to help them win this championship.”
“This has been an incredible experience to be here at Memphis In May with The Shed,” said Ray Carnes, co-founder of Rec Tec Grills. “It’s our first year working together, and we couldn’t be happier to be part of their multiple wins.”
The Shed BBQ & Blues Joint was founded in 2001. The restaurant serves more than 1 ton of barbecue a day.
