KCBS Team Bios


Year Started: 2013

Started out BBQ'ing as a hobby that quickly got out of hand. I cooked my first Boston butt after tasting one my Brother-in-law had cooked. I got interested in judging and took the KCBS cooking class in winter of 2012. I meet a wonderful Couple Tommy and Sherry Whitley of Tom Boys Best BBQ. Tommy ask me to help cook an event in Lexington NC and I was hooked. My first Competition was the in Shelby NC in fall of 2013. I did alright for my 1st event. My second was in Lexington NC in Spring of 2014 where I finished 1st in Chicken 5th in Brisket and 5th over all. As I learn more I hope to get to that grand championship very soon.
