I am Iván Nagy, leader of the SunCity BBQ team. I have been into BBQ for 5 years and started competing in 2017. I am a certified Pitmaster and Judge of the Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS), the wordl's biggest BBQ organisation. We proved ourselves at KCBS organized competitions at home and abroad and we won the best Hungarian competition team award in 2018 & 2019. We competed with Péter Tamási and my wife, Margit Kurunczi, in 2019. That year we started to use our self-developed rubs in the competitions and reached 4th place on the KCBS Team of the Year European list. Our goal is to introduce quality BBQ as a cooking technique as widely as possible in Hungary and to represent Hungary at the highest possible level at international competitions.
We have used a lot of different spices during the past years for BBQ competitions, catering and hobby roastings. Barbecuing needs special seasonings and the grain size is really important.
I have been experimenting with spices for a long time and the taste has slowly become more refined and the rubs have become more harmonic and finally my own, unique BBQ rubs were born.
I'd like YOU to know the taste of BBQ competitions and experience the real BBQ feeling. Try my rubs and grill spices on meats, vegetable and fries.
The most important accessory of BBQ: the smoker’. There are several types, which operate with different principles. We believe that high-quality BBQ can only be prepared with appropriate and serious tools, therefore we chose the BBQ PitBox smokers developed and manufactured in our country, which is an acknowledged brand and delivered to several countries all around the world. The selection includes insulated box smokers, the Comper series using the new hot & fast technique, cartridge smokers, woodburning, Whole hog ovens and many more specialties. With our experience of several years and the introduction of the smokers open for public we help you to chose the proper tool. For details please call us!
The essence of the competition is that the teams submit the 4 mandatory categories at 30 minute intervals, which are the basic dishes of American bbq: chicken, pork rib, pork shoulder-blade and beef brisket (Chicken, Ribs, Pork, Brisket).
It is important to make dishes that are perfectly prepared and taste good, some of which require up to 20 hours of preparation and roasting. The competitions usually start with 20-50 teams. At the announcement of the results, the first 10 places in each category will be read, 10-6. placement is called Call, from 5 to the first Walk, because here the teams are already called to the stage. The overall result (Overall) is read, the second place is the Reserve Grand Champion and the first one is Grand Champion!
It is important to mention that the rules of competition are uniform throughout the world, and judging is done in an absolutely anonymous way, according to strict rules. A team never knows who tasted their submitted race box and no judge knows which race team’s production was at his table.
We have been competing for two years and during this time we have developed into one of the most successful teams not only in Hungary but in Europe!
