KCBS Team Bios


Year Started: 2007

The fire may be hidden, but the good times aren't. Things we've learned:
Winning isn't everything (but it does help pay the bills).
The good news: wood smoke keeps the bugs away. The bad news: so does two days of sweat.
The judges' tent is farther away when you're carrying your entry than after you've dropped it off.
It NEVER gets windy at the Diamond State contest in Delaware.
Bad BBQ with friends is better than no BBQ at all - but it's still bad BBQ.
