BUTCHER'S DAUGHTER BBQYear Started: 2011
Butcher's Daughter BBQ is a Grand Championship one-woman team, headed by Donna Fong, and based in Alameda, CA. As a CBJ since 2004, she combines her passion for BBQ with knowledge of slaughtering, butchering and meat processing into a unified culinary experience. Her father, Donald Fong, who has owned Don's Meats in Oakland, CA for forty years, continues to be a strong influence in how she approaches the fundamentals of meat. During her 2011 rookie year, Donna traveled to competitions and events in her Toyota Avalon, packing everything she needed to cook four meats, including her 18.5 inch WSM. By the end of her rookie year, all four meats were cooked on a single WSM. For 2011, Donna ranked 6th in the California 2011 TOY race, third in the California rookie race and second in the national Rancher's Reserve race. She was ranked 8th overall and 3rd in brisket in California for 2012. During "business hours", Donna supports her CBJ-turned-Pitmaster habit by working as a molecular biologist at a Bay Area biotech company. She is a single Mom of a 8 year old competitive Kid's Q'n daughter, and an avid Oakland Athletic's fan.
