BBQ Speak: Years ago, I was fortunate enough to be asked to join the team after entertaining the idea of starting my own team. Seeing the fun and quality of the product Matt and Ryan were turning out, I wanted to be part of the BBQ competitions. With Ryan and Matt as mentors, I quickly learned the dos, don’ts and had access to not only the best BBQ pitmasters that I knew, but also the equipment.
Our team has really developed a niche over these years. We are known both as gracious entertainers and equally ferocious competitors.

Born and raised in Omaha Nebraska, in my early 20s the swimming pool industry drove me to Kansas City where barbecue became an immediate obsession. From humble beginnings smoking ribs on a Weber grill running 100s of pounds of meat for massive parties, I’ve done it all in the world of barbecue in just a few short years. I was asked to join the team years ago for my ability to stay up late and keep the party rolling.
Professionally, I manage a 1,500 agent virtual call center for a cable shopping network.
