I began competing in 1998 – it was the most logical way I knew to meet the most people interested in BBQ.
It wasn’t long before I was inspired to compete and hopefully make it to BBQ Champion status. That would be good credentials for Butt Rub®.
Having been a part of the competition world for 21 years (1998-2019) has been a pure joy and a privilege. Traveling all over our great country and the world representing BBQ and our amazing heritage cuisine has been such a gift.
Thank you to the BBQ community, friends and supporters for this amazing journey…so far!
