3 Eyz BBQ started out with Dan and Jason deciding to compete against the professionals on the KCBS BBQ circuit. Dan blames his addiction (errrr.... Hobby) on having an adult beverage and watching a competition on TV. Jason got sucked in simply since he was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The team formed in 2005 after getting beat badly at a tailgate competition in Bel Air, MD. While sitting on a curb afterward Dan & Jason decided to call the team "3 Eyz" as they only had 3 eyes between them. The following year, they entered their first competition in Salisbury, MD and got first place chicken and 10th place pork! From that point on, they both knew they were hooked. A few (150+, who's counting) competitions later and the team is still hooked. So hooked, that 3 Eyz BBQ, LLC was formed and is a successful spice rub business.
They have the ribbons and trohpies to prove it, this years MABA Team of the Year is none other than 3 Eyz BBQ!
