Last Call Heroes BBQ came to life in 2008 when we started cooking in backyards for various small gatherings with the intention of perfecting our BBQ for competition. In September 2012, Travis entered his first BBQ contest, in Pierre, South Dakota, and won. Needless to say, we were hooked. We entered several more contests in 2013 and the results spoke for themselves about the quality of our product. We ended the year with two rib contest wins (a third place and a sixth place) in our first showing at a KCBS sanctioned contest. Since 2014, we have concentrated on KCBS contests, with a focus on cooking ourselves into all of the World Championship contests.
