2012 Tyson Best Wing on the Planet

The results are in! After conquering the preliminary competition round, scaling the Tyson test kitchen, and finally, receiving the highest tally of consumer votes, the Tyson Best Wing on the Planet competition has announced its 2012 wing champion: Black Dawg BBQ!

Black Dawg BBQ is the self-proclaimed "Pittsburgh KCBS team," and with only a handful of competitions under their paws in a span of three years, this puppy team is learning how to run with the big dogs and picking up tricks along the way. The team has recently added a third member to their litter and is in the process of adding one more.

Black Dawg BBQ's winning wing recipe is described as "sweet with a touch of heat and a little bit of bacon; twice cooked, deep-fried and then grilled." Sounds tasty, right? In addition to the bragging rights associated with their win, Black Dawg BBQ's wing recipe will soon hit store shelves!

Final results are as follows:

  1. Black Dawg BBQ - $6,500
  2. Smokin' Bad Habit - $5,000
  3. Munchin Hogs - $3,500
  4. Smoke Therapy - $2,000
  5. Pig Skin BBQ - $1,000
  6. S&S Pit Crew
  7. Diva Q
  8. The BBQ Nerds

A big congratulations to all of the teams who participated in the 2012 Tyson Best Wing on the Planet competition!
