KCBS Team Bios


Year Started: 2013

Husband & wife team from Cleveland, GA that split the competition duties pretty evenly. Heather is a trained chef and helps put together flavor profiles and boxes all entries while Richard tends the pit most contests. Both have had to cook solo a few times over the last few years and have done so successfully, so they are truly equal partners! Along the way, they have made some lifelong friends and love that their BBQ family continues to grow. They have had many successful finishes the last few years but are still looking to win one! It has been fun venturing out of Georgia to cook in most of the surrounding states and they hope to go even further in the next few years.

Hometown: Cleveland
State: GA
Country: US

Most wins in a year: 2017 had multiple top ten calls per category plus best overall finish in KCBS. 2 more 180s in Chicke

Biggest Wins: Haven't won an RGC or GC yet, but hoping we end that streak soon!

Sponsors: Springer Mountain Farms, Team Triple 9 & Pot's BBQ Rubs
