KCBS Team Bios


Year Started: 2007

Big Uglys BBQ (BUBBQ) was founded in 2007 by Chris and his children. They competed in one contest in 2007, getting a 3rd place call in Brisket at the Maryland State BBQ Championships. The following year, 2008, saw them win 2 Grand Championships and a Reserve GC. BUBBQ took a rather long hiatus while Chris became a member of 3-Eyz BBQ from 2009 thru 2013, winning the KCBS Team of the Year in 2012. Kitty also joined 3-Eyz in 2012 and was an instant success, dominating the alternate categories. In 2014, Chris and Kitty decided to compete separate of 3-Eyz, and resurrected BUBBQ, and saw immediate success with 2 Grand Championships and 4 Reserve GCs. In 2015, BUBBQ took 3 Reserve GCs.
