KCBS Team Bios

IBEW SMOKIN' SPARKYS

Year Started: 2010
Members:
PETER SEMADENI

A group of Brothers and Sister of the IBEW Local 124 decided to put down their tools for a moment and picked up a BBQ fork.

Team members are all active and retired members of IBEW Local 124 so no restaurateurs or professional chefs to be seen but we still beat a good number of big names from time to time. When you consider that, even getting a call or two is a pretty big accomplishment.

Current Members:
Pitmaster - Peter Semadeni
Owen Peoples
Chris Merrill
Gene Moddelmog
Roger Lake
Andy Shelton
Jimmy Thomas

Hometown: Kansas City
State: MO
Country: US


Most wins in a year: 1

Biggest Wins: The hearts and minds of the brotherhood that financially supports our BBQ addiction. 13th in Ribs at the American Royal Open ain't too shabby either!!!

Sponsors: International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local Union 124
