KCBS Team Bios


Year Started: 2016

We began competing in the Backyard Class in 2016 just for fun. We had so much fun and received a lot of advice and help from the pro competitors so we decided to add equipment, build on what we continue to learn from the pros and compete in additional contests. A very heart-felt shout-out to Mike and his "Sir-Porks-A lot" team for letting us watch over their shoulders. You helped us get our best finish so far. I learned more in an hour than I could watching 100 hours of competition shows. We'll never forget you guys, best
wishes. I love the BBQ family!
