The following are from the notes of the video: "The 25th annual competition
brought back the champions from 1989 to 2012. The Grand Champion proved to be
Tuffy Stone from Cool Smoke. The video also explores the international teams as
well, who traveled thousands of mile just to experience the grilling competitive
nature of "The Jack" and the family relationships that are built"

It is quite obvious
obvious to me that Tuffy Stone (Cool Smoke)is at or near the top of his game in
the BBQ World. In 2013 he was the Grand Champion of the American Royal
Invitational. He then went on and became the Grand Champion of the Jack Daniels
in 2013. This year he was the Grand Champion of the American Royal Open Contest
out of 551 teams.
However, this year in the American Royal Invitational Cool Smoke came it 81
st. Tuffy Stone wasn't the only big name team in the Invitational this year who
were way down in this contest. QUAU was 62, Butcher BBQ 50, and Iowa's Smokey
D's BBQ was 21th.. to name a few. So, how does this happen?
