We are thrilled to welcome BBQ’er extraordinaire BBQ Pitmasters Tuffy Stone.

That year he also won 1st Runner Up at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo Barbecue Cook Off World Championship, and took 2nd place in ribs at Memphis in May International Festival. Tuffy has won contests all over the country, including back to back wins at the American Royal World Series of Barbecue, Grand Champion at 2013 Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey World Championship Barbecue Invitational, and First Place in Whole Shoulder at the 2010 Memphis in May World Championship to name a few.
