KCBS Team Bios


Year Started: 2015

Team Bio:
We are husband/wife team Justin & Jenifer Hughey of Asheboro, NC. Born and raised in Texas, we lived in Austin for most of our adult lives. Justin purchased his first offset smoker in 2003 and started experimenting in the backyard of our South Austin home. For years our friends and family have urged us to take our talents out of the backyard and into the world, so we decided to finally give competition BBQ a try. We recently moved to North Carolina after surviving the BBQ wasteland of New Jersey for 2 long years. It's nice to be back in BBQ country, and we look forward to meeting folks who share our passion. If you see us at an event, please stop by and introduce yourself!
