We are a family team that has been cooking since 2005. There is one team member,Jim who is not our family but he has been around for so long that now he is. My seven year old daughter is the driving force behind the team. We love barbeque so much that it is like an obsession. The only thing we haven't tried to bbq is the neighbors dog. We have done pretty well in a few small local contest and now we are ready to start cooking in some KCBS events. Well,lets get cooking, we are Craving Q.
