About Us

Too Sauced To Pork™ started off as Swinebucks BBQ in 2005.  As we entered contest after contest we learned from our mistakes. We didn’t place top 3 in a pork category for a few years, but we kept winning 1st in the cocktail contests at every competition. Margarita, Bloody Mary…you name it. Soon after our 2nd 1st place drink trophy, we all began the search for a new name that fit our team.  Neil was with his girlfriend (now wife) Melissa on Goat Island above Niagara Falls when sweet nectar flowed from her lips, “You guys are always too sauced to pork” Lightning shot across the sky, a thunderous roar of applause sounded from the heavens as the angels began a song…that was it… TOO SAUCED TO PORK™.

Why is this team different from other BBQ Teams…

We believe in inclusion instead of exclusion.  We give people from all over the world the chance to join, AND be a part of the team for Memphis in May.  Since 2005 we have had members from 42 US states and 17 foreign countries on the team, all united by their love of BBQ

We have won over 100 awards and have placed top ten over 60 times in our history.  Including first place wins at Memphis in May, Goat Days, OinkToberfest, Western New York BBQ and Music Festival, and Smokin Aces just to name a few.
