KCBS Team Bios


Year Started: 2015

We started out Q'in while hanging out on summer evenings by a campfire. We decided to expand our horizons and compete, not just to test our skills and flavors, but to hang out with people with a common interest & have fun. The team consists of Mark Brumbach, John Kline, John Schlegel & our better halves Jennifer, Jill, and Jen, known to us as the "briskettes."
