DOCTOR CUE NCYear Started: 2015
I'm a veterinarian who is finishing up a post doctoral study in public health, specifically epidemiology. I have always enjoyed cooking and ever since seeing BBQ Pitmasters for the first time I've been hooked on BBQ cooking even though I've been hooked on BBQ eating for my whole life. I decided to start competing in a local amateur competition since I've never done anything out my backyard yet. My wife Rev Alicia Beard has been very supportive and is our spark plug. My father is my support and my mother is an organizer/benefactor.
