“The Shed BBQ and Team Fitzgerald Families Join Forces to Preach the Delicious Goodness of Wild & Domestic Game BBQ!”
Two Nationally recognized the beloved families have joined forces to further bring the goodness and fun of grilling, smoking and other various ways of cooking wild game and domestic game BBQ to individuals and families around the world!
ABOUT TEAM FITZGERALD
Dan and Guy Fitzgerald of Team Fitzgerald – long time award winning veteran video and television producers – are pioneers of the modern day bowhunting/outdoor cooking/country lifestyle video/tv movement, seminar stage presentation speakers, and founders of the Fitzgerald Hoss Buck brand product line available in thousands of stores across the U.S. and Canada.
Team Fitzgerald video and television productions are the leading family outdoor 100% Bowhunting/Outdoor Cooking productions in the nation today. Collectively, Dan & Guy have produced over 100 full-length titles and their Team Fitzgerald Television Series has been the longtime Fan Favorite 100% Bowhunting/Outdoor Cooking series on various national broadcast networks for decades and globally online.
Not only are they internationally known for their expertise in hunting, speaking and video production but Dan and Guy are equally known for their expertise in most all ways of preparing and cooking wild game, sharing a combined 95 years cooking experience. Their “from the woods to the table” approach enables them to share unique and exciting in depth, step by step techniques of utilizing every part of the animal including the lesser known cuts of meat. Dan and Guy bring as much entertainment to cooking as they do education! “I think cooking should be as fun as hunting” , says Guy. “Surprisingly, many hunters don’t really do much cooking of the game they kill themselves, and it has been our mission for decades to inspire folks to turn that around, by writing and producing fun, unique creative, easy to understand, and delicious cooking segments/recipes that the common hunter can do themselves and to benefit the whole family!”
ABOUT THE ORRISON’S
The Orrison family, an internatinally known BBQ family are television regulars. Brother and sister team, Brad Orrison and Brooke Lewis are co-owners of The Shed BBQ & Blues Joint in Ocean Springs, MS. The Shed produces over a ton (2,000 pounds) of Nationally award winning BBQ, per day! The Orrison know how to barbecue and barbecue well. They are the 2015 Memphis in May International World Grand Champions. Brad, Brooke, and their parents, Linda and Craig Orrison are all co-owners of The Shed Saucery, which is the mother ship of their retail line of BBQ sauces, marinades and rubs. Their sauces are in approx. 10,000 stores across the country, Europe and New Zealand. The Saucery also is a co-packer for several other brands of sauces.
The Shed sauces and marinades have won 300+ awards over the past few years and were ranked #1 sauce in the World on BBQSuperStars.com in 2014!
Here is where the stars aligned for the Fitzgeralds and Orrisons to team up to share the best of their combined “game” with the art of cooking game. Team Fitzgerald has never endorsed a National brand of BBQ sauce to this level. They had their favorites of course but never put their public stamp of approval on any of them, until they tried The Shed’s Southern Sweet. From there they tried The Shed’s other products and fell in love. They then began extensive testing of the products, paring them with different types of wild game, using many techniques of cooking and studying the flavor profiles thy brought to the game. “We are all about the taste – the final result. We bring friends and family out for backyard cookouts and even do some blind taste testing and The Shed BBQ sauces consistently take the top spot among the adults and kids too! This is huge, as there are a lot of competitive BBQ sauces out there! It says a great deal about how truly amazing The Shed Sauces are. The Orrisons know what they are doing.”, says Guy.
“We Orrison’s have found a family that we are proud to be teaming up with to promote our common passions. We have a lot in common with the Fitzgerald’s and look forward to working together to promote our passions of BBQ and sharing cooking techniques for wild and domestic game. We admire the humane manner of hunting and respect the Fitzgeralds bestow to the animals they bring from field to fork”, proclaims Linda Orrison, aka “Mama Shed”, Matriarch of the Orrison clan. Linda is also the sitting President of the National Barbecue Association.

The Shed will open two locations at the Park serving all Minor League baseball games and other events held at the Park. The Shed will bring their World Championship, Award Winning barbeque, coupled with their internationally distributed sauces to the MGM Park. We are honored to be a team player with the Shuckers and Ovations Food Services to promote this great game of baseball. My Grandfather raised me on baseball. To me, there is nothing that can compare to sitting in a stadium with the sights, the sounds, the aromas, and hearing the crack of the bat. Having MGM and the city of Biloxi, bring the Shuckers to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, I will create those memories for my Grandchildren. Doesn’t get much better than this” says Linda Orrison, marketing director, The Shed BBQ & Blues Joint. The Shed Terrace is a tri-level, luxury setting for 100 people, situated just inside the main entrance to the Park. While fans enjoy an All Star buffet, they will also experience a perfect view of the game, coupled with the scenic view of the Park, the Beau Rivage and the enticing beauty of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Fans will not miss a single stroke of the bat, when visiting the Shed’s second location, nestled just behind home base, featuring several of The Shed’s legendary menu items. Shed Que is also available on the Box seating menu. The Biloxi Shuckers are the Double-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers and a member of the Southern League.

The Ocean Springs, MS based Shed BBQ & Blues Joint will be bringing the Memphis in May International World Grand Championship, along with their First Place Whole Hog World Championship trophies and $29,000 home to South Co-owners Brad Orrison, sister Brooke Lewis and The Shed’s competition team, led by Senior Pit Master Hobson Cherry, have been competing in the whole Hog division of Memphis in May World Championship for 10 years. Over the years bringing home many wins, including first places in beef, poultry and exotic. Their climb to the World Grand Championship has been a steady process by placing in the top 10 every year, with the exception of 2012 when their business burned to the ground. Coming back in 2013 to win First place World championship in Whole Hog. This year The Shed trumped them all by nabbing the illusive Grand Championship. One secret The Shed shared that brought them to the 2015 Grand Championship is the use of their own brand of BBQ sauces, The Shed’s Sweet Southern and Spicy Vinegar. These two sauces, plus other ingredients, were injected into the hog prior to the 22 hour low and slow cook. These sauces are on grocery shelves nationwide. Lewis also hails the fact that “We do it the old fashion way with a wood and charcoal smoker. It’s a lot more work than the propane smokers on the market today, and there are some fine ones out there, but we prefer the old stick burner method of stoking the fire and using a variety of woods to instill as much flavor as possible.” Brad also commented on the use of a 90 gallon water tank that runs under the smoker filled with aromatics to “flavor the steam’ in the cooker. Joining The Shed on stage going toe to toe for the Grand Championship were World Champions Chris Lilly from Big Bob Gibson’s, Decatur, Alabama and Serial Grillers, Memphis, TN Salty Rinse BBQ from New York City took home second place in the Whole Hog Division and Cotton Patch Cooking Team from Columbus, Mississippi took third.
