KCBS Team Bios


Year Started: 2006

We are two guys, Bob and Bill, whose passion and enjoyment of the great taste of food and smoked/BBQ’ed meats have brought us together to form a BBQ team. Since our primary purpose is the fun and enjoyment of producing the best barbeque meats we can, we saw ourselves as just a couple of guys who were “Just Smokin’ Around”, hence the name. When opportunity knocks, we get together, drag our smokers (and tons of other stuff!) to these competitions and have a great time trying to create the best tasting meats we can; taking in the wonderful hardwood aromas as brisket, pork and chicken absorb the array of exotic and foreign spices that enhances every tender piece of meat. Win or lose, our love and passion for good food will always make for a memorable time.
