  1. Jim “Rhino” Reincke

    Sign.Up.NOW! After earning LAST PLACE in my first BBQ competition, I decided to get serious about learning the true art of southern style, low & slow BBQ and found my way to meeting Chris Marks. GAME CHANGER!! In a very short time I went from DAL (Dead A$$ Last) to Grand Champion. The tips, tricks, and techniques YOU WILL LEARN from Chris will make you the envy of the neighborhood, even if you’re not wanting to kill it on the competition circuit.
