This year, at the 39th Annual World Championship Barbecue Cooking
Contest which took place May 12-14, 2016 at the Memphis in May
International Festival in Memphis, Tennessee, the Pitmaker BBQ
Addiction team won 1st place in the brisket category, 2nd place
in ribs and 8th place in chicken. So what was their secret ingredient?
William Tischina, an employee at Savory Spice's Houston location,
is also a member of the Pitmaker team. "Now everyone stopping by
the store wants to buy the Malibar Cracked Pepper because that's
what we used on the winning brisket," Tischina said. In Texas,
salt and pepper are the primary spices used on brisket, and Pitmaker'
s win shows just how important it is to use top quality ingredients if
you're looking for award-winning quality results.
On their 2nd place ribs, the team used Savory Spice's Team Sweet
Mama's KC Style Rub along with their own mixture of other additional
spices. For their entry in the poultry category, Pitmaker's team
turned to a Savory Spice original recipe: Chicken Cordon Peru with Poblano Chile Sauce.
In 2015, Savory Spice co-owner Mike Johnston took a road trip of
a lifetime, visiting 88 barbec
ue joints across the country in 43 days. During this Chasing BBQ
journey, Johnston also visited Pitmaker in Houston. "We've worked
hard to make sure our spices, blends and recipes are top quality,"
Johnston said. "I've always been passionate about great barbecue,
so the fact that our products and recipes helped the Pitmaker team
win big at this world class competition is a real honor."
