Team Revolution Barbecue was in chilly Northern Arizona in the town of Prescott Valley. This used to be our old stomping grounds and the birthplace of the idea of Revolution Barbecue. Only a portion of the team was able to attend, and Assistant Cook (and Dad) Joseph Connaughton was able to join us at this event. Though we didn’t place that well i this event, a great time was had by all. With all the changes we have made to support the “California Taste Profile”, it was not surprising that we did not do as well as we hoped. We look forward to attending this event in the future.
This pork shoulder was rubbed with Revolution Barbecue Chicken and Pork Rub as well as a little dark brown sugar. This is after about 5 hours in the smoker. To order you Revolution Barbecue Rub or for recipe ideas, visit our website at http://www.powertothepig.com.

Chicken on the smoker at Santa Anita
Revolution Barbecue placed 3rd out of 31 teams on October 27th, 2012 at the Santa Anita Win, Place, Or BBQ Showdown at Santa Anita Park. “In the beginning of the year we decided to throw out our old recipe and start over” says Glenn Connaughton, Head Cook for Revolution Barbecue. Our previous method and recipe had not seen us get higher than 10th place in chicken and we knew we had to do something. With our new brining solution (sorry, top secret) along with our new smoking and saucing methods, we think we are on to something. Look forward to our next event where we can confirm our methods. Special thanks go to Vida Connaughton for excellent job on putting together our award winning turn-in box!
