A little more about us...

I am an avid outdoor cook with over 35 years of grilling and BBQ experience. I have been involved in BBQ and grilling competitions for the past 5 years. For the first four years I was a member of a team that was run by a good friend. When he stopped cooking competitions due to a business obligation my wife, Amy and I started our own team, Captain Ron’s Brew-n-Que. Our first year as a team was 2008 when we cooked in 8 competitions.

Our achievements in our first year include:
  • Reserve Grand Champion at Elk Grove, IL
  • First Place in Beef Brisket at Elk Grove, IL
  • First Place in Beef Brisket at Menomonee Falls, WI
  • First Place in Pork Ribs at Racine, WI
  • Second Place in Chicken at Dubuque, IA
  • Second Place in Sausage at Arthur, IL
  • Fourth Place overall at Shannon, IL

In addition to the above we finished in the top 10 overall in 6 of our 8 competitions.

New sponsor!

We're thrilled to announce that Plowboy's BBQ has agreed to sponsor Captain Ron's Brew-n-Que for the 2009 season! Plowboy's was the 2008 American Royal Invitational Pork Champion and sells two incredible rubs; Yardbird Rub and Bovine Bold.

Thanks to Todd and Plowboy's BBQ!

Getting Ready for 2009

We're lining up out competition schedule for this year. We're probably going to expand our radius from home a little bit to be able to include more competitions. So far this year we've lost two competitions that we attended last year; Dubuque, IA and Menomonee Falls, WI. I have also heard rumors that the Racine, WI competition will also be canceled. This is a shame since all three were fun competitions and fairly close to home. Look for our 2009 schedule to be posted shortly!
