Due-South BBQ wins first place at inaugural End of Summer BBQ Cookoff in Ocean Springs

The inaugural End of Summer BBQ Cookoff and Concert in the Park Fest did not disappoint. It was a benefit for Wounded Warriors in Action and other local charities.

Twenty BBQ cooking teams along with five coastal BBQ restaurants offered a variety of beef, pork, and chicken dishes.

The family-owned catering business out of Pascagoula, Due South BBQ wanted to not only help out a good cause, but joined the competition as a way to introduce their business and food to other communities.

The husband and wife duo, Doug and Amy Rowell, won first place in the cookoff, winning a homemade trophy and a brand-new grill to help for future competitions. Amy said, “We’re both community servants by nature. We do a lot in our local community and that’s how we started with our BBQ business is with some of the competitions over there. It has been a great day. We’ve had a lot of great feedback. So, that’s always a plus. It feels amazing. Anytime someone compliments something that you do, it’s always a great feeling.”
