This was the first time Wicked Que competed in Tryon’s festival. Earlier this year, the team, from Watkinsville, Ga., scored a perfect 180 in brisket at Kings Mountain, N.C. They won two grand championships in Georgia last year, one at Winder and the other at Young Harris, where they had a perfect 180 in chicken. Their team slogan is “Live fast, smoke slow!” (photo by Leah Justice)
