Cooking Is Not Rocket Science, But Being A Rocket Scientist With A Secret Weapon Doesn't Hurt
BBQ is like Golf. Just concentrate about how YOU do each time you cook not anyone else

About Rogue Cookers - BBQ World Champions

Who We Are

Doug and his wife, Jennifer, compete on the competition BBQ circuit as Rogue Cookers, based out of South Texas. In over 110 BBQ competitions since 2009, we have won: a World BBQ ChampionShip in 2015 (Houston Rodeo or HLSR);  3 Time Finalist at Houston Rodeo, 3 First Places at World Championships (HLSR in Chicken, The Jack Daniels in Chef's Choice, and American Royal in Potato); 11 Grand/Reserve Championships; and over 225 top 10 calls. Rogue Bbq uses Traeger Grills exclusively for competition since 2014 and the first in Texas to use pellet grills SOLELY for all compitition meats (chicken, ribs, pork butts, and brisket) and ancillary entries such as dessert, chili, margaritas, bloody mary, and chef's choice.   Low Slow Rogue describes our BBQ style and approach to cooking - we cook low and slow and Rogue refers to our constant desire to improve without boundaries as taught in our BBQ classes.
