Its official – Jack Daniels World BBQ Championship has announced the participants for 2011. For those of you unfamiliar with how teams are chosen to compete – The contest recognized as “The Jack” has a tradition of creating a Bung  – Which is a stopper for a barrel of whiskey I believe – With each teams name that won a qualifying contest. A qualifying  contest is one with at least 25 teams or a first year contest that has 15 teams. In order to earn a bung you must win the contest, then the officials from the Jack pull 1 bung from each state of qualifiers – There is also an automatic qualifier for folks that win national contests, overseas contests or have 7 qualifying wins over the year. So without further adieu I present to you all the teams that had their bung pulled today – oh happy day! Congrats to all those that made it!
