Rickey Jones hails from Marble Falls, Texas. He Started Me-You and Bar-B-Que on Facebook a few years back. This is where he and 233 of his BBQ lovin’ friends chat about BBQ places they’ve eaten at and rate them on a 1-5 scale. Rickey has 189 on record, but knows it’s more than that after losing his first folder years ago. He’s judged over 30 cook offs, small town stuff, fairs, and the last one was a World’s qualifying for a trip to Meridian.
“I love judging BBQ competitions, meeting the pit masters and seeing their passion for what they do. Bacon Bash has meant a lot to me in the last few years, because of the families they help.” -Rickey Jones
“Pork butts have really taken off in the BBQ world; years ago it was brisket, ribs, and chicken. It is now one of my favorites. With all the injections of seasonings people are creating, you can really add a great flavor to something.” -Rickey Jones
