Victory Lane BBQ
HEAD COOK: Heath Riles
COMPETITION: World Barbecue Championship
QUALIFYING EVENT: 2014 World Barbecue Championship Top 10
I started cooking in KCBS BBQ contests when I was 18 years old. I am now 36 and have been cooking in a variety of contests over the last 18 years. Over the last 9 years, I have cooked mainly MBN BBQ contests. It took several years to develop a winning recipe and I am constantly trying to improve the things that I already have. I am the Pitmaster for Victory Lane BBQ. In 2014, I led Victory Lane to being Hog, Shoulder and Rib Team of the Year on the MBN Circuit. In the 2014 WFC I took 3rd place in the BBQ Round. A few other interesting facts: most people recognize me from a national commercial that I was in, I played Lil Norm; I have been married to my wife, Candace, for 2 years now; I have a 9 year old son named Blaine; I have my own line of BBQ sauces and rubs on the market.
