but we're actually meat cooking teams sponsored by the Iowa BBQ Store
Bergey Boys Blazing BBQ is a competition BBQ team based out of southeastern Minnesota. Our addiction for competition BBQ began in 2014 when we entered our hometown BBQ contest with only two weeks’ notice. Our team originated with 3 brothers: Brock, Brandon, and Brady; along with our father, Donnie. In 2020, Kelly began assisting Brady with more contests and has become
a valuable part of the team. Our daughter, Madelyn is the head cook of Kids Que team, UniQue and even at her young age, has found success on the competition circuit. Our son, Braxton will be ready to compete soon as well. Brock, Brandon, and Donnie along with the rest of the Bergey family still attend contests whenever their schedules allow. We are very excited to partner and represent the Iowa Barbecue Store as a sponsored team in 2021. Go get em’ Team Corn Cookers!!

Dusty Ware & Sam Heinrichs
Dusty competed in KCBS Contest in 2008-2011 under the name "Beach Body BBQ". One of the biggest mistakes to ever happen to us was getting a 3rd Place Pork call in a loaded field at our very first contest in 2008. Dusty thought he was on top of the world and this was so easy.....wrong! Dusty took a break from competition BBQ to pursue some other ideas and in 2019 Dusty thought he wanted to get back in to comp BBQ. His business partner Sam loves BBQ (and is the organized one) so hell let's give this competition BBQ thing another go-around now that we have more time. That's when Darty-Q was born! Darty-Q is the brainchild of Iowa BBQ Store owners Dusty Ware & Sam Heinrichs.
In our first contest after an 8 year break we took 9th place ribs at the 2019 Rose Festival and we took 7th place Ribs in the 2020 Real Squeal Contest. Needless to say we like to cook ribs and the other meats we can talk about later!
Dusty and Sam are both on the Ottumwa Smoketoberfest Board which has quickly grown in to one of the largest and most sought after KCBS Contests in the Midwest!
If you're day drinking it's a Darty, anything else is just a lame party!
