Year Started: 2012

Both of us have been doing backyard BBQ for many many years. We have done a lot of catering for people we know from company parties to wedding receptions.
We thoroughly enjoy learning the science behind BBQ and the competition aspect of BBQ.
We taste BBQ from many sources to try and find what makes for a successful BBQ.
Bob and I have taken some classes from masters in competition BBQ to help improve our understanding of what the judges are looking for. We are ready to get some calls at our next events.
