KCBS Team Bios


Year Started: 2009

The Pit Crew gained a lot of knowledge and experience while cooking in the Backyard Division in KCBS, MBN, GBA and FBA those first years. When our trophy case started filling up, our BBQ friends urged us to take the next step we did. We moved up to the Pro Division in late August of 2010 and found our new home in the KCBS.
Tina is the Pit Mistress for our team and uses her culinary background and drive to be the best to push us closer to the top of our game.
In late 2012 we moved from a Weber Smoky Mountain and started competing with our Southern Q smoker "Yellow Belle". We also introduced our new 16' trailer "Daisy Mae" at that same time.
This combination served us well as our first contest of the 2013 Season was The Sam's Club National BBQ Tour in Daphne AL where we christened the new rig and smoker with a Grand Championship! Our first ever grand, with a 1st in Ribs and 3rd in Brisket.
2014 saw Tina competing on the Travel Channel's American Grilled Southeast competition where she took first place honors. This win sparked The Pit Crew to put forth their own sauces under the alias "Sparks Fly" which can be purchased at the AtlantaBBQStore.com and bbqsuperstore.com.
Already in 2015 The Pit Crew has introduced a new trailer (Daisy Mae 2.0) and they are now smoking on a new Southern Q smoker (Sunny Belle)

We look forward to rolling down the road to compete in different contests along with some of our favorites again this year.
