Matt and Sarah Walker
BOOMERANG BBQ AIMS TO MAKE FOOD SO GOOD THAT PEOPLE WILL ALWAYS WANT TO SWING BACK AROUND FOR MORE, JUST LIKE A BOOMERANG.
When Matt and Sarah Walker first teamed up to compete as Boomerang BBQ in 2016, they knew they’d soon be on the road every weekend in order to succeed on the circuit. What they didn’t know is how soon the victories would begin rolling in.
From the beginning, Boomerang BBQ has always aimed to reach the top of the ranks. They call it “all or nothing” barbecue.
The family is a true partnership with Matt focusing on the meat categories while Sarah gives her all at desserts and other auxiliaries. It’s a winning combination — literally.
The team has picked up a number of grand and reserve grand championships at competitions all around and have worked their way up the ranks in the Kansas City Barbeque Society.
All the while, they have a blast — win or not.
GET TO KNOW BOOMERANG BBQ
Matt Walker is a huge fan of his Yoder Smokers stick burner and his Yoder pellet grill. He’s also big into the RipTangle Smoker.
Whether it’s a drum cooker or his Yoder, Matt typically steers toward B&B Charcoal’s line of hickory products because of the flavor profiles the wood provides.
Being on the road so much for competitions, the Walkers don’t always have much time these days for cooking at home.
While cooking for competitions, Matt sticks to the main meat categories of pork, chicken and brisket. Sarah has stood out from the crowd in auxiliary categories like beans, and especially in desserts, where she has garnered a number of perfect scores.
Sarah’s dessert entry at the 2017 American Royal competition, cooked with B&B Pecan pellets, got her sixth place out of nearly 300 entries.
