Titanium Tongsman Champ- Ricky Albright
The BBQ competition world is full of awesome flavors, delicious meats, smoky aromas and some of the most amazing people this world has to offer. Pairing BBQ and football is a no brainer, and this year's live cook-off event was held at the SEC Championship game on December 3rd in Atlanta GA.
The two finalists were paired with a celebrity chef and battled it out, grilling their favorite sausage recipes in a 30 minute contest.

Johnsonville did a great job with the Tongsman event, and had an awesome turnout.
