In the world of competition barbecue, Jim and Jan Burg are celebrities.
The Evans couple make up Killer B’s BBQ, the top competition barbecue cooking team in the country.
“I used to like to creep into competitions,” pitmaster Jim said. “I can’t do that anymore.”
Killer B’s outcooked 49 other teams to earn the grand championship and $50,000 on Oct. 21 at the third annual Sam’s Club National BBQ Tour, the Kansas City Barbecue Society’s largest-sanctioned competition, in Bentonville, Ark.
