KCBS Team Bios


Year Started: 2004

We are like most teams that just got carried away in the backyard. With a mentor like Tony Stone living in the same town, it was destiny for us to get into competition bbq. We are officially hooked on it. We are certified judges now and look forward to more adventures on the circuit next season. Our goal is to compete in the Jack Daniels one day.My son Bert has built replicas of our Box Truck and Lulu our cooker that is shaped like a pig "as shown in picture". Now were getting serious because my wife "for Cristmas" got me a brand new FEC100.
