Southern Dutch BBQ

Southern Dutch BBQ is Tom and Dorine. This power couple started back in 2012 with a blog to share their barbecue adventures with the rest of the world. In their journey to know everything about American Barbecue they found out about KCBS competition barbecue. In 2013 they cooked their first contest. That was their turning point in life. Hooked and addicted ever since they compete around the globe, striving to get the best protein on the plate for the judges.

Thanks to the urge to get better every day, Tom and Dorine are trained by the best pitmasters in the USA, including Tuffy Stone and Travis Clark.

Their mission nowadays is to breath, feel and live barbecue every single day and bringing their passion and knowledge to everyone who is interested to learn about the culture or the sport. Barbecue and competing is more than a passion, it’s their way of life. Barbecue brought them to places they would never have visited and has made friends for life.

We are Southern Dutch Barbecue. Thank you for looking us up.

We only work with the best

  • Our Sponsor since day 1. Vuur en Rook is the biggest Low & Slow BBQ store in Europe. They have the finest sauces, rubs, injections, but also hardware like cookers and all accessories you need to be the best pitmaster: From backyard cook till competition cook, they got all you need! A visit at their store let you feel like a kid in the candy store.

  • In our opinion the best charcoal briquettes in the world. Made from coconut shells makes them environment friendly. Next to that their quality is highly consistent, burn very long and and produce just 6% ash. Their square boxes make them easy to transport as well. For us only pro’s on this product. Next to that is Kasper a lovely guy to deal with.

  • Voted as the best pork in the Netherlands. And we can only agree on that. Amazing flavor with a great tenderness let us produce our award winning Pork. Available at the better (online) butcher shops. Their intramuscular fat is out of this world. You really should try it!

  • Nice to meat imports the finest Japanese Wagyu as well as some beautiful American and Australian meats. We are grateful they provide us with their fantastic Creekstone beef. Amazing company who supplies a lot of Michelin star restaurants as well as some high-end chains. We have never met so many passionate people in 1 company.

  • Thanks to Resaco we have got a sponsorship of Gateway Drum Smoker. The airflow in this cooker is unbeatable and they look stunning! You don’t believe how incredible this cooker is unless you cook on it, taste it or see it!


Competing for over more than 5 years in KCBS barbecue, Southern Dutch BBQ is one of the winningest teams in Barbecue from the Netherlands.

After years of developing, testing and tweaking we have developed this flavour profile. These seasonings have brought us dozens of trophies in Europe and the US. Our goal is to give you a taste of competition barbecue in your own backyard! That’s why our seasonings are commercially available now. We believe a rub is not limited to a specific type of protein. That’s why all seasonings can be used on all cuts of meat… Or potatoes… Or veggies… Or whatever you want.

We are extremely proud our ‘Southern Dutch BBQ – A Touch of Sweet’ has won the American Royal World Series of Barbecue 2018 rub contest in Kansas City. Between all the heavy weight, well known rubs, we have become the winner in the category ‘mild’

Southern Dutch BBQ

Last weekend we competed at EUregio Barbecue Festival 2019. To keep traditions up high the weather was shit, but the atmosphere was fantastic again!

Our cook was decent, hit all our marks, but at the same time nothing special. We knew it wasn't good enough to improve our points. We ended up 4th overall with a 2nd place pork, 6th place brisket and 9th place pork.

This weekend we had next to Peter also judge Nikki with us to cook with us for her master judge. Both were a great help this weekend. Thank you!

We heard loads of friends taking great results this weekend. Congrats to all, but especially IQ BBQ for GC and the team we sponsor Backcorner Competition BBQ for their first RGC! And the De Filous - No Nonsense BBQ for a fantastic 3rd place. Welcome back 🙂 Of course also congrats to everyone who had their name called!

We are extremely proud our rubs were liked by loads of judges and has proven again to be award winning for a reason!

Thanks to Roman Schellartz for the great organization and hospitality and to our sponsors Vuur en Rook Mc Brikett Nice to Meat and Heyde Hoeve for your support!
