BBQ TEAM - Bourbon & Blues BBQ

Wilmington, North Carolina, United States

Pitmaster JP Parran


Pitmaster, JP, grew up in Prince Frederick, MD and is a US Army veteran. His wife, Colleen, is a native of Hershey, PA and is a returned Peace Corps volunteer. They currently live in Wilmington, NC and love to listen to live music, travel and BBQ. First introduced to competition BBQ in 2010, they soon became certified BBQ judges. Bourbon & Blues BBQ started as a concept in 2015, but it wasn’t until 2022 that they took the leap to start competing. In May 2022 they cooked at their first KCBS Backyard competition—the West Virginia BBQ Throwdown in Ripley, WV—and were hooked. They’re off to a great start in the 2023 season! After the first three competitions of the season, Bourbon & Blues BBQ has captured two 1st place chicken calls including a perfect 180 at the Atlanta BBQ Store Classic, a 1st place ribs call and their first Grand Championship at the Lakeland Pigfest in Lakeland, Florida in January 2023.
