Phil Wingo

I am a self taught pitmaster, caterer, food competitor, food judge and consultant.  I also specialize in manufacturing seasonings for large restaurants, bbq teams and  anyone who would like to produce their own blend in small to large volumes.  I am the creator of #porkmafia seasonings with everything from predust/marinade to the final rub.  I enjoy smoking whole hog, brisket, ribs and prime rib.  I have taught pitmaster classes in the US and Europe. 2 time WFC competitor and Culinary Fight Club Champion. I am passionate about food, meat and especially BBQ.

 Jack Waiboer

Jack has always loved barbecued meats. He can’t claim that his dad or grandpop were great Pit Masters, but encountering the profound savory smokiness of barbecued meat was love at first whiff. The many camping trips Jack spent with his childhood Boy Scout Troop sparked a deep interest in live fire cooking. Waiboer has dedicated his life to understanding wood fires, seasoning and smoke as they combine in culinary alchemy to make up the great tradition of American Barbecue. He applies lessons of this classic cuisine to the modern cooking vessels and techniques of barbecue today. Jack’s story is about learning, teaching and training barbecue and presenting the delicious combinations of these flavors at their very best.
