I joined up with John Wheeler at Natural Born Grillers in 2000. We had a great run and I started 10 Bones in 2007. Since 2007, 10 Bones has been the Memphis BBQ Network Team of the Year, "Shoulder, Rib & Whole Hog" Team of the Year, appeared on BBQ Pitmasters three times and won Grand Championships from New Hampshire to Florida. In 2008 10 Bones SWEPT the "Hog Fired Up" BBQ Contest in Eutah, AL winning $31,000 and the very next weekend SWEPT the "Tennessee FunFest" winning another $8000. It's never been done before and I doubt it will ever be done again. We have several teams that use our Award Winning Rub's and Sauces. We even have one that stole the recipes and have gone to the "victory" circle with them          .... But hey....Stuff happens and you know what they say about Karma!

Some of our winnings  (the ones I can remember):
