KCBS Team Bios


Year Started: 2008

We're a husband and wife team competing since 2008. Finally and the end of 2011 we started stringing together enough good turn-ins to achieve our first Grand Championship at the end of 2011. It was an extra sweet win because there were side bets going on among the teams that were 'expected to win' - Hah! That win was backed up by 3 third place finishes at prior competitions.

We further backed up that first GC with two more GC's in 2012. That adds up to three bungs in the draw for the 24th Annual Jack Daniel?s World Championship Invitational Barbecue.

As good luck would have it - we scored! We won the California draw for the 2012 Jack Daniels.

2012 was quite a year for Too Ashamed to Name BBQ. 3 GC's the American Royal, and the Jack Daniels. We're looking forward to what else is in our competition bbq future.
