R Butts R Smokin' BBQ started out as a competition BBQ team in 2004. We are still competing in BBQ contests, but we also distribute our award winning rubs and cook great BBQ for special events and parties!
Our start in BBQ goes back to our childhood days in the Northern Ozark hills of Missouri. Weekends were often spent with families and friends around a BBQ pit with some hickory wood cooking some BBQ. Fast forward several years. Gene and Randy decide that they can cook some pretty good BBQ and decide to begin competing on the KCBS circuit. At first competition BBQ was a humbling experience, but with determination, 16 Grand Championships is the result.
With our success in competition BBQ, we decided to offer some of our award winning rubs for sale to the public, several years ago. Our rub sales continue to grow, with more folks trying and using our award winning rubs; Ozark Heat, Butt Kick'n Chicken and R Beef Rub.
The 2018 BBQ Competition season has started and R Butts R Smokin BBQ is out on the circuit again this year! We hope to add to our numerous awards and and to our Grand Championship totals. It will be hard to top the highlight of last year with our trip to Lynchburg TN to the 2017 Jack Daniel's World Championship Invitational BBQ Contest. We had a perfect 180 score in chicken and had a total score of over 700 to be 7th overall out of 95 teams from all over the world!
