KCBS Team Bios


Year Started: 2009

I'm new to the competition circuit. I have about 6 years of BBQing and grilling under my belt, and love it! I love everything there is about BBQ, from the smell of the smoke to beer and good friends. I only wish I could do it more! I love learning new tricks of the trade and new flavor profiles. I'm always saying, "keep it simple, stupid!" when cooking. I want to taste the meat and use flavors that will enhance the flavor, not over power it. My two personal favorite things to cook are tri tip and pork baby backs. My team consists of my step dad, Ron (pictured with me at the Texas Steak Cookoff back in 2009) and my husband, Chad (when the Army hasn't already called dibs on him!).
