We want to thank everyone who came out and supported The Lawman BBQ Showdown! We had an amazing group of sponsors, supporters, attendees, teams and volunteers.  We were able to “wrastle” up close to 30 teams and had 14 full time judges getting full and having a whole lot of fun.  It was only with the help of everyone involved that we were capable of donation $5000 to the Sheriffs Youth Boy’s Ranch.  We look forward to seeing everyone again for next years event! A special thanks to All Realty Services, North Florida Abstract and Title, Gulf Coast True Value Hardware and Sonny’s BBQ.  Congratulations Austin Philips of Tallahassee who took first place in multiple categories and Best Overall winner.
