CHARLOTTE, N.C. (May 22, 2017) – Fresh from a big win at one of Charlotte’s Beer, Bourbon and BBQ Festival, the smoking hot team from Mac’s Speed Shop headed to Tennessee and attained its highest-ever cooking competition honors at Memphis in May. Mac’s wowed the judges over the weekend, taking home a highly coveted second place trophy in the Whole Hog category at the 40th Memphis in May International Festival World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest.

Billed as America’s most prestigious barbecue cooking competition, the Memphis in May Event attracts teams from all over. This year 236 teams competed with hopes of big wins, bragging rights and a share of a purse that ranges from payouts of $300 for 10th place to $15,000 for the Grand Champion, plus matching money from Cattlemen’s BBQ sauce for top winners.

“Whole hog and shoulder contests are hotly contested because those are the categories where a team typically takes home the Grand Prize. That’s why we are so thrilled with our unbelievable 2nd Place in Whole Hog,” says Mac’s Head Chef Kevin Kuruc. “Many competitors focus totally on competing. The fact that we compete, place and have multiple restaurants in multiple markets, makes our Whole Hog victory particularly sweet.”
