KCBS Team Bios


Year Started: 2010
Alberto DAVIS

The year was 1999. Surf-N-Turf in Imperial Beach California was our first competition. Our team pit master Alberto and Chef Shawn have been chefs through out San Diego since 1997. 2005 they stopped competing and focused on their careers. But now the both of them have took a step back and are ready to get back into the grind of doing what they truly love doing and that is BBQing. Since 2005 they have done BBQ for San Diego street scene, Adams street fair, San Diego Indie fest and countless other street events around the city while they were chefs, and chef de cuisine throughout San Diego. While doing this they took BBQ to another level. That was by putting the gourmet into BBQing. Its time for them to come back home to their roots which is competing and simply doing fabulous BBQ.
