Sam's Club and KCBS are pleased to announce Michael McDearman as the new Series Director for the Sam's Club National BBQ Tour. "McD" is an author, the owner of "Get Fired Up" cooking school, and previously the host of the American GrillMaster Experience. Fans and attendees have enjoyed McD's cooking demonstrations and samplings for years, and we're excited to have him as our new Series Director. McDearman is taking over tour duties from Chef Troy Black who, after completing more than 100 successful events, has decided to take a personal break before pursuing other professional opportunities.

The Sam's Tour rolls on to Marietta this weekend. Big cash and spots at the Southaven Regional Final are up for grabs, so be sure to welcome McD to the team and join us for all the action if you're in the Atlanta area!
