KCBS Team Bios


Year Started: 2007

Our experience in BBQ began doing "pit style" Pig Roasts in Connecticut more than 25 years ago. Our history and background can be viewed at www.bhebbq.com . Seven (7) years ago we started competing. We are a member of the New England BBQ Society (NEBS) and participated in KCBS Judges Training in 2009. In 2013 our Fund Raising has focused on Alzheimer?s Research (having done the annual Fighting Alzheimer's Pig Roast in Westfield MA for 9 years).

Our BBQ Catering is well known and we provide Pig Roasts, and BBQ for weddings, graduations, birthdays etc. We have our own hand crafted sauces and rubs that have attracted a small following. We are Serve Safe credentialed and certified to judge in both MBN and KCBS events

Our Team is all family and friends.
