TexJoy congratulates the Houston area Bar-B-Q team of Fat Ash BBQ, named winners of the best Ribs at the Napa Auto Parts BBQ Cookoff. The win earns them a spot at the National Championship in Meridian, Texas later this year. We are proud to say that Fat Ash uses TexJoy seasonings on much of their mouth-watering, savory barbecue delicacies. Fat Ash BBQ has a history of success with chicken, ribs, and more and we are honored that our little yellow jars are in their trusty tool kit; most notably, our TexJoy Special BBQ Rub.
The 2nd Annual Napa Auto Parts Cookoff involves a wide array of cooking teams, grilling greats and smoker savants, and we are proud that our friends took home first prize for the ribs division. Fat Ash BBQ was named 4th Place Winner Overall and advance to Nationals next. Made up of family and friends, the team begins with the Garcia brothers whose shared love of grilling has grown from brothers simply having fun on the weekends to winning awards at cookoffs and winning the respect of grilling gurus across the great Lone Star State. EJ Garcia says that he discovered TexJoy Seasonings at a local BBQ hotspot during his college days at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, TX, and has been shaking it on his culinary concoctions ever since. The wild side of this is that they have only been officially a competing team since…this year! Already they have racked up several awards and they're hungry for more.
E.J. Garcia says that they have not tried all the many varieties of TexJoy seasonings just yet, but that they are working their way down the line and the TexJoy Mesquite Shake is up next. We think we speak for many folks when we say that we can't wait to taste what they come up with next. We look forward to the new and exciting things to come from Fat Ash BBQ team and we are proud to be associated with such an involved family of champion cookers. As they say, they like to compete, but they love to cook together and spend quality family time. We can't agree more.
