Y-WE-Q... too many reasons to list! The top 3... Great Food!!! Great Friends!!! & Great Fun!!!

We have been hooked on competing since the first contest we entered. Nothing like hearing your name called at a contest.

We built our new smoker in 2008 and it won it's first championship in Richmond, MO at the Mushroom Festival BBQ Cookoff State Championship 2009.

Look forward to competing with all of you. Good luck to all!

Hometown: Excelsior Springs
Country: US

Most wins in a year: 1

Biggest Wins: For us any win is a big win. We love all ribbon colors. Our biggest win to date was the Mushroom Festival BBQ Cookoff 2009 in Richmond, MO. This was our first championship with our newly fabricated smoker.
Since then we have changed the smoker configuration and are now pulling the 30' rolling masterpiece we call Miss Bell.
Last year in Sept. we won the Jesse James Cook Off in Kearney, MO. So we will see you at the 2011 American Royal Invitational. Good Luck!
