Sometimes you gotta go all in!

In addition to competing on the BBQ circuit, Craig and Matt have won numerous awards in the Steak Cook-Off competitions, including winning the 2019 Steak Cookoff Points Championship, The 2022 Steak Cookoff Ancillary Points Championship and the Memphis in May World Championship Beef Division with our friends from Boars Night Out.
