KCBS Team Bios


Year Started: 2014

I am a retired guy that has a dream to compete in the BBQ world just to have a good time and to do what I love, BBQ. I do not really care if I win or not, I simply want a chance to compete and maybe even learn some things along the way. I am just starting out with only one competition under my belt however, I am very much ready to compete as soon as my smoker is finished. I am custom building one that will surely be one to watch out for. Nothing fancy, just wanted something to turn up the heat with.

Hometown: Oak Grove
State: KY
Country: US

Most wins in a year: 2014

Biggest Wins: 2014 my team took second place for ribs, third place for chicken, and third place over all. WE were so excited because it showed us that we could actually compete with others as a team and win. totally awesome!
