Jazzy’s BBQ in Tampa competes in United States of BBQ finals on Good Morning America

Two chefs flexing their muscles in front of an exposed brick wall

Two Tampa BBQ gems were featured in the national spotlight on May 13 as part of Good Morning America’s United States of BBQ. The contest pit pit masters across the country against one another. Tampa’s Station House BBQ and Jazzy’s BBQ went one-on-one to see who brings the most smoke to the city. In the end, locally owned and operated Jazzy’s took home the crown. They were then featured in the finals of United States of BBQ on May 16. They competed against winners from Dallas, Chicago, and D.C..

The winner received a $10,000 check. Unfortunately Jazzy’s didn’t bring home the ultimate prize. That honor went to The Federalist Pig out of DC. Jazzy’s is still number one in our hearts, though, and we are beyond proud of this staple spot that put Tampa on the BBQ map. Thank you for for feeding Tampa, Johnny and Pamela.


Let’s not sleep on Jazzy’s, one of the top tier BBQ joints in the city. At Jazzy’s you will find the best in ribs, sausage, chicken, beef and pork, with everyday sides of bbq beans, french fries, potato salad, cole slaw, and corn on the cob, and don’t forget the mouth watering desserts: sweet potato pie, pecan pie, and 7up pound cake.

Make sure you get out and show love for your now famous local BBQ institution. Jazzy’s is located at 5703 W Waters Avenue in Tampa. Visit their website for a full breakdown of the menu. Follow Jazzy’s on Facebook and Instagram for the latest menu updates.
