Our Competition BBQ Team



Our Competition BBQ Team
Our competition team, formally known as Fat Angel BBQ, was created in 2007 when two boys and a girl from Jersey decided to spin off from their former team, Lost Nation Smoke Company. After years of working as apprentices with Rich Decker, we decided that they were ready for the major league.


We are a competition barbecue team specializing in the art of smoking chicken, pork ribs, pork shoulder and beef brisket. We've represented New Jersey at contests all over the country including Missouri, Tennessee, Arkansas, Georgia, Nevada and in almost every state from Virginia to Vermont. We have collected over 100 awards including 4 NJ State Championship titles. Highlights include 1st place in Ribs against 488 teams at the American Royal BBQ contest in Kansas City (which is known as the World Series of BBQ) and 1st place in Brisket at the National BBQ Festival in Douglas, GA.
