Owner/Pitmaster Wahoo BBQ

Professional Bio

I am a home taught chef, and home is where it all started. Both my parents are great cooks, each in there ​own style handed down from their elders. My Dad got outside and cooked on the grill every chance he got. Watching how much he enjoyed that sparked my interest in grilling and BBQ. I've had many different grills but the Big Green Egg is what really fueled my barbecue addiction. I have fine tuned many recipes, rubs, sauces, and techniques throughout my years of outdoor cooking and it has become a passion of mine. What started out as a Hobby, quickly grew into bigger and bigger events being catered, then we started entering into competitions, and with quite a few awards under our belt we thought it would be a great time to fill my dream of owning my own restaurant. We now operate out of my little hometown of Fluvanna, VA 30 minutes from Charlottesville and the UVA Campus. I am excited to provide good quality barbecue to the community.
