1997 Great Florida Barbecue Sauce Search
Barbecue Edition
Former Politician Still Knows How To Win A Race
July 3, 1997|By Linda Shrieves of The Sentinel Staff

In the South, barbecue is the stuff that greases political campaigns. Politicos stump at pig-pickings, and movers-and-shakers
rub elbows over smoked pork smothered in barbecue sauce.

So perhaps it should be no surprise that the winner of the 7th Annual Orlando Sentinel Great Florida Barbecue Sauce Contest
is a retired politician.

Tom Dorman, former Orange County commissioner, won the contest handily - but he didn't have a chance to lobby the
judges. While the 10 finalists ate barbecue June 19 on the patio at Bubbalou's Bodacious Barbecue in Orlando, the judges
were sequestered in another area of the Conroy Road restaurant.

For Dorman, barbecue is a long-standing hobby.

''I've got a big pit in a screened-in building on my property. I barbecue just for family and parties and stuff - never
commercially,'' Dorman said. This, over the objections of his son, Jon, who has told his father he should open a barbecue
restaurant.

Dorman is an experienced barbecue hand, but he's also a veteran sauce-maker. ''We never had store-bought barbecue
sauce at home,'' said Jon Dorman, who was on hand, along with other family members, to watch his father take first place.
