Team Meatery BBQ originated as a few guys doing backyard BBQ on the Green Egg. Jason's Championship in his first cooking competition at the 2016 6th Annual Buckeye Barbeque Battle sponsored by Specialty Gas House was his springboard to launching Meatery BBQ. Jason and his team from Meatery BBQ are looking to improve from last-year's second runner-up in their first ever Eggfest competition.

Team North Market Spices won the People's Choice Award in 2015 and is back competing again this year after taking a scheduling break in 2018. We make extensive use of spices and blends from Ben Walters' North Market Spices in the historic North Market. The spices we use aren't necessarily "hot", but their bold flavor and savory taste are always brought out best with dishes cooked on a Big Green Egg. We pride ourselves in being one of the first (if not the first) user of the Egg in Ohio dating back to the mid 1980s when we had one shipped from Florida.
