Now we are ready to try our hand at competition BBQ.

Like everyone who competes – for returning Marshfield Rib Cook-off competitor and 2021 2nd place winner “A Simple Pig”, it all started when friends and family tell you “this is the best BBQ I have ever had” and from there you are hooked…

Wood & Steel BBQ

Wood and Steel BBQ started out in the early 2000’s when 3 friends discovered that they each enjoyed hanging in their backyards and cooking slow and low (Before it was so popular in this part of the country.) It didn’t take long for the 3 friends to start smoking meats slow and low together. When it came time to compete the friends named their group Smoking Pigs BBQ. They kept that name for years until it was time to compete in KCBS competitions where Smoking Pigs BBQ and every other variation of it was taken so Wood and Steel BBQ was born.

Kath’s Racks

Kath’s Racks is a scrappy team of twenty-somethings who have a burning love for smoked meats and friendly competition. Lead by Kath Mooney, professional “broad” caster with no barbecue experience prior to Thanksgiving 2020. After last year’s competition it was determined that we must continue sharing Kath’s Racks for years to come. This is our second year, and we are super excited.

First Rib-Sponders

The Marshfield Community Rib Cook-off is thrilled to welcome back “First Rib-Sponders” as a 2023 competitor representing the Marshfield Fire Department.

Saints BBQ

A Saint’s BBQ rib aims to focus more on the rub, and is not as saucy or wet as some other ribs. It combines a homemade savory rub with a thin coating of a sweet glaze that keeps the rib moist, but does not overpower the rub.

Sarcastic Swine BBQ

Sarcastic Swine BBQ is a quick service restaurant in Abington with a satellite location in Middleborough. We offer full service catering, takeout catering, and we have a brand new food truck this year. We started out in competitions, but don’t get to often anymore. Winner of the People’s Choice Award of the MCRCO 2022.

Half Inked BBQ

Two cousins, one with Tattoos and one with none, got into BBQ accidentally at the same time. Greg, with Tats, started on a stick burner. Pat, with out, started on a Pit Boss. Family members independently started raving over the food that was being cooked, and we started comparing recipes. We quickly realized that if we put our heads together, we could make something of this. COVID hit, and all was put on hold. After COVID restrictions were lifted, we hit the BBQ circuit slowly, starting off at local VFWs, then moving to doing one KCBS a year. Still getting our feet wet, we are having fun BBQing and meeting those fellow BBQers!

Ya Porkin’ Me BBQ

Ya Porkin’ Me BBQ is a Plymouth-based team that has been competing in NEBS and KCBS since 2017.
