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.

  • Our partner in production of seasonings and our preferred supplier for chicken. Also the manufacturer of the famous Jalepeno Cheddar sausage. On same location as Vuur en Rook.


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’

Finally we had the opportunity to cook again after months of waiting to start the 2020 bbq season. We needed to drive more than 1100 km for it, but damn it was worth it. The atmosphere, the weather, the location, hotel, organization, everything was perfect. We just love to cook in Austria. Although we usually are not a big fan of back2backs, this was worth it! Definitely a contest on our shortlist for next year!

Results day 1 (already posted yesterday)
Chicken 2
Ribs 1
Pork 2
Brisket 2
Grand Champion with 26 points difference on RGC

We knew our cook today wasn’t as good as yesterday, but still were pretty happy with it. Results day 2:
Chicken 5
Ribs 5
Pork 2
Brisket 6
Reserve Grand Champion

All together awesome weekend for us. Congrats to Uncle Tony for GC on day 2.

Vienna BBQ Days was for us the confirmation that cooking in these challenging times is doable. It was great to see how everyone involved in the competition (reps, teams, judges, organizer, volunteers) took their responsibility and followed all rules and guidelines to make sure we all can cook in a safe way in 2020.

Thanks to our sponsors who are supporting us: Nice to Meat, Heyde Hoeve, Homemade, Vuur en Rook and McBriket for believing in us. We are proud to work with you guys. Also thanks to everyone who made this contest one to remember! Now it’s bedtime!

First contest of the season is a fact at Vienna BBQ Days. What a great contest to cook. Really happy Alexander Dobernig gave us the possibility to cook again in these challenging times.

Results? Happy with those as well. 2nd Chicken, 1st Ribs, 2nd pork and 2nd brisket was a clean GC today, being 26 points ahead of RGC. Congratulations to Schluchtengriller BBQ for RGC and everyone who had their names called.

Thanks to all our sponsors which we will thank tomorrow after this back2back contest is over. Now it’s time to cook again tomorrow 🥳
