Team Bio:
(Formaly TEAM LIK-MY-RIBBZ & Appalachian American BBQ)We started cooking in competitions because my Sister-n-law Bonnie wanted me to compete before I deployed to Iraq. We did, and we had a great time, and met some good folks (even though the results were not what we wanted!!) Now I'm home. And yes, I'm still serving in the U.S. Military (20 years+) and ready to compete again. See you out there... HOO-RAH!!! Plus I've teamed up with the head cook from Appalachian American BBQ, my friend/brother Jared to form Brothers-In-Arms BBQ competition team. We've competed under all 3 team names, but now we're 1. BROTHERS-IN-ARMS FOREVER!!!!
