Our Team

The Brotherhood of Swine BBQ Team:

Dale Ave-Lallemant - Team Founder and Professional Pitmaster.  This guy knows his meats and has the trophies and hardware to prove it.  He specializes in making Best Brisket and chicken in the country.    

Nate Medlin - 'Teach', is the workhorse at competitions and the master of the Pork Shoulder.  In the off season Nate spends his time molding young minds as a teacher, but during BBQ season, he spends his time blowing old minds with his pork shoulder skills.  

Caleb Ave-Lallemant - He is currently carving out his own niche in the BBQ world.  He is the defending 2-Time champion of the Wyandotte Rib Throwdown.  As you guessed, this kid can smoke some mean ribs.  Look for him to make his TV Debut this summer.
