Team Bio:
Also known as The Habitual Smokers Evangelical Circus and Snake Oil Medicine Show, this group of crazy Ozark Mountain hillfolk have been spreading mirth and mischief around the KCBS circuit for 15 years. The team takes great pride in the fact that we have more fun than the law will allow (in most jurisdictions) and still manage to get the entries to judging on time. We are grateful for our success and even more so for the friends we have made in competition barbecue.
