KCBS Team Bios


Year Started: 2007

Team Bio:
My father Terry Byrd Sr. Taught me to BBQ as I was growing up. I watched him compete in many events throughout the years. In 2007 I decided I was ready to take on the ol man and began to compete against him in some backyard BBQ contests. After 2 years of coming in 2nd or third behind him I finally in 2009 I took 1st in a category over him. We didn't compete again after that. Our name is a spin off of the navy seals team that eliminated the worlds biggest terrorist. We came up with the name shortly after that famous raid. We began preparing to compete again, but I was stricken With a series of health problems and had to get them taken Care of. Now we are back in action. I don't know how much we will compete, but I know the old man probably doesn't have many years left and we are making the memories. We are also joined by my wife Jaclyn, as dad doesnât travel anymore to events. She helps keep us organized and moving smoothly. She is a vital part of our success.
