KCBS Team Bios


Year Started: 2008

Grillin' Magic, LLC and Grillin' Magic BBQ Team were both founded September, 2008 by David Schakett. He is a multi-award winning BBQ chef, certified BBQ judge, book author, and creator of Grillin Magic BBQ Products.

Grillin' Magic BBQ Team's first BBQ competition was in 2009, taking home a check for 100 dollars, a trophy, and the title of "Sauce Champion", beating all backyard and pro-class teams.

You can see Grillin' Magic BBQ Team's passion for BBQ when you taste their competition style BBQ meats that they spend hours preparing and slow smoking.

David and Grillin' Magic BBQ Team have worked non-stop perfecting their BBQ techniques and products since September 2008. They strive, and are committed, to have the best BBQ around, and are well on their way to achieving that goal.
