2008-07-21 01:49:47-:-The Pink Flamingo BBQ StoryMy name is Ralph Taylor, and my passion is cooking and eating great barbecue. On June 20, 1998, my good friend, Tim McGuire, and I entered our first ever BBQ cook-off at Columbus Acres, right here in Fort Smith, Arkansas. Our brand new BBQ team surprised everybody that day by winning first place pork! From that day forward, I have been on a wild and crazy BBQ road trip that has traveled from Frisco, Colorado to Kansas City, Missouri to Lynchburg, Tennessee to Pine Bluff, Arkansas and home again to Fort Smith.

Where did we get our name? Well, our BBQ team motto says it all, “We’re cheap, we’re tacky and you don’t want us in your yard” … just like those plastic pink flamingo yard ornaments.

The Pink Flamingo BBQ team cooked our first Kansas City BBQ Society (KCBS) sanctioned cook-off in October, 2001. The KCBS is the largest and most respected competition BBQ organization in the world. And I guess it was typical of our “youthful” optimism when we chose the American Royal Open as our first KCBS event. The Royal is the largest BBQ cook-off in the country and features almost 500 BBQ teams each October. We didn’t win any ribbons that year, but we had the time of their lives and vowed to return. And return we did. Pink Flamingo BBQ won 1st place Sausage at the 2003 American Royal and because of that, every customer at Ralph’s Pink Flamingo BBQ will get a complimentary piece of the world’s best sausage.

I won my first KCBS Grand Championship in 2004 at the Coors Colorado Challenge in Frisco, Colorado. We went on to win the 2005 and 2006 Frisco cook-offs as well. Pink Flamingo BBQ has a total of 9 Grand Championships and 3 Reserve Grand Championships to our credit. The Pinks have won our way into the American Royal Invitational BBQ three times and was the Arkansas representative at the 2005 Jack Daniels World Championship Invitational BBQ. I was even selected to compete on the national television show, the All Star BBQ Showdown. Since that first “party time cook-off” in 1998, my Pink Flamingo team has been blessed with over 150 different BBQ awards.

In the past few years, my wife Patsy and our two sons, Jeff and Ret, have earned their place on the Pink Flamingo team. Previously, those positions were only occupied by “guys that like to drink lots of beer … and eat lots of BBQ”. It seems that the wild and crazy early days of the Pink Flamingo BBQ team evolved into a serious family competition barbecue team that has learned to compete on the national KCBS level.

Now, my family and I are proud to be serving Grand Champion style barbecue from our own restaurant in Fort Smith, Arkansas. So, if you are tired of typical restaurant style BBQ sauce … try the award-winning Pink Flamingo BBQ. We’re serving up the best BBQ in the region.
