We began our journey of cooking in BBQ competition back in 2010-11 by traveling several KCBS events in Indiana and Kentucky.
During our first year on the competition circuit we surprised many including ourselves. We learned a lot, improved our methods, met a lot of great people and more than a few friends; all while having some fun and eating some tasty BBQ from time to time.
During this first year we have cooked in a total of 4 contests so far and we have received a total of 2 calls to the stage. Their awards have included, a 1st place call in chicken, 3rd in pork.

Dave joined the team in Liberty, IN. He started with open eyes and ears when he first started. Dave has since evolved into the “rib guy.” Always eager to learn, Dave is also developing his own BBQ skills since starting with the team and has even purchased his own WSM that he brings along to the contests as well as uses while at home.
