Competed in our first competition in October 2017 and looking to do more in 2018. We dont own a business, we have no sponsors, we don have high dollar cookers or trailers. We are a simple husband and wife team funding ourselves using cheaper equipment under pop up canopies and doing our best to promote BBQ and to show that anyone can make a go of it. Team members canât be updated and for whatever reason but this team consists of myself and my wife Tracy McColligan. Upcoming events for us will be the Wild and Wonderful BBQ competition in Weston WV and the Ohio Smoked Meats and BBQ festival in Nelsonville Ohio.
