KCBS Team of the Week: Rooftop Barbeque

Share this article:
March 21, 2013

New for 2013, KCBS is introducing one team per week to its social platforms. Team of the Week is not selected based on performance nor any other criteria, but is simply a selection from the KCBS team database.  

Team Name: Rooftop Barbeque

Team members: Andy Allen, Kellen Wagoner, Joe Angelone, Keith Henson, Joey Chapin

KCBS team since: 2010

Team home base: Menifee, Calif.  

Favorite competition moment: Tied between our first KCBS contest where we won people's choice and took 4th in pork and taking RGC last year at our Sam's Club National BBQ Tour local event.

Competition prep tip/cooking technique: If you do Cupcake Chicken, try using mini loaf pans instead; it will give you a more natural shape.

Goals for 2013: To get our first GC and go to the American Royal

Cooking Hardware: Green Mountain Grills

Favorite category: Brisket
