MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – The 2019 Memphis in May World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest is now underway, with teams from all over the world ready to compete for barbecue’s most-coveted crown.

One of those teams competing is Smoking Jokers, a pair of Australians who entered the competition in the ribs category last year and took home 4th place.

One half of that pair is Rohan Dimmock who says that while he enjoys all types of barbecue, ribs are where it’s at. 

“Brisket is great, whole hog is great, pulled pork is great, but ribs trump everything,” says Dimmock.

In order to top last year’s results, Dimmock says they just need to do what they’ve always done.

“We just put out what won us a lot of competitions back home and it worked. The judges liked the flavor. The onsite judges understood what we were doing and basically we missed top 3 last year by one-hundredth of a point,” says Dimmock.

The Smoking Jokers and all of the other teams competing will find out Saturday night when the judging concludes, and winners are announced for who will take home the crown of best ribs in 2019.
