KCBS Team Bios


Year Started: 2003

We're an all-female team with Type A personalities. We don't have a head cook (probably a detriment), but we each cook a category. Mary Ann: brisket; Linda: ribs; Catherine: chicken; and Tatty: pork butt. We come from all over the country. Linda and Catherine are from Tennessee, Mary Ann lives in the Washington, D.C. area, and Tatty is from Florida. Because of that we only cook about three contests a year and don't win a lot but we have fun and that's the main thing.

Hometown: Washington, D.C,, Tullahoma, TN., Brentwood, TN. and Astatula, FL.
Country: United States

Most wins in a year: Uh, none

Biggest Wins: Fifth place overall, Clarksville; Fifth place chicken, Birmingham, 5th place chicken, Barbeque Beltway; 10th place chicken Lakeland and 2nd place chicken Gallatin.
