The Smokehouse Mafia competes in Kansas City BBQ Society (KCBS) sanctioned events in the Southeast, with a concentration in their home state of North Carolina and its neighbor to the south. They are a three-member team; Brian Thompson, Michael Eller and Andrew Rasmussen. Brian and Andrew began competing in 2009 with another team. In 2010, they formed the Mafia and in late 2010, Michael Eller joined” the family”.

Favorite Moore’s Product:
Blue Cheese Buffalo Wing Sauce and Creamy Ranch Buffalo Wing Sauce. Our wing contests produced great reactions to these, got to see the split on flavor preferences (about 50/50).
Favorite recipe to make with Moore’s:
Hamburgers with Original Marinade
Favorite Event in 2015:
Papa Joe’s Banjo-BQ in Evans, GA. It was a music festival that took place in a public park in a big amphitheater. The BBQ teams got to be part of the show!
I have to eat raw tomatoes before competitions. And I hate raw tomatoes!
