Sweet 16 of “Pitmasters Bracket Challenge” is set #BBQMarchMadness

Lee and Amanda from Florida’s Pig Chicka Cow Cow BBQ prevailed in the final seconds to defeat Dirt Road BBQ and reach the Sweet 16 of the Tailgate Guys BBQ virtual Tournament “Pitmasters Bracket Challenge.”

Wow! What a finish it was to Round Two of “Pitmasters Bracket Challenge” as two matches in the Bill Arnold Region came down to the final seconds. In the closest battle of the virtual tournament, No. 4 seeded Pig-Chicka Cow-Cow BBQ must have made their free throws and got a key defensive stop at turn-in time, beating No. 4 seed Dirt Road BBQ 561-553. Congrats to Lee and Amanda for reaching the Sweet 16. In a finish almost as exciting, No. 10 seed Butcher BBQ ended the Cinderella run by No. 15 seed Burnt Finger BBQ 521-488. Also in the Bill Arnold Region, No. 1 seed Clark Crew BBQ went on a big run this morning and beat No. 9 OBR/Mark Lambert 671-434, and No. 3 Heath Riles BBQ was rock solid in a 690-331 triumph over No. 11 Tebo Creek BBQ.

A total of 13,832 votes were cast in Round 2 of the tourney, pushing the overall total to 37,571 votes. Who knew virtual BBQ could be so compelling? Thanks to all for voting – and having some fun while we can’t get out and compete.
