KCBS Team Bios


Year Started: 2016

I started doing competition BBQ in 2012 with a close friend. As time went along our schedules were not meshing well so I started a new team name. I have a couple of close friends Russ and Keith that are going to be helping me.
I have been doing backyard BBQ for many many years. I have done some catering for people we know from company parties to wedding receptions. I thoroughly enjoy learning the science behind BBQ and the competition aspect of BBQ. I have taken some classes from masters in competition BBQ to help improve my understanding of what the judges are looking for.
