Tiffany: I’m not only a competitor, but also a KCBS master judge and an SCA and EAT certified judge. I began my cooking journey as a KCBS solo pitmaster in 2018 in the mid-Atlantic region as #thisgirlknowsmeat.

Ryan: I started competing as a solo pitmaster in Murphysboro, Illinois, in 1992. I later relocated to Colorado and had quite the run in the Rocky Mountain BBQ Association and KCBS.


Tiffany: 180 score in pork at KCBS and a nearly perfect first place score in SCA

Ryan: In Rocky Mountain BBQ Association and KCBS, numerous Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion awards as well as several first place wins in SCA
