HEAD COOK: Heather Sinyard
COMPETITION: World Barbecue Championship
Had a love of cooking at a very young age thanks to some amazing cooks in my family like my Italian great grandmother and my mom. Decided to attend culinary school in mid 90s at the Art Institute in Atlanta. I've had a lot of great culinary opportunities since then including a few years working for a high end catering company in London and owning and operating my own bar and grill in Helen, Georgia for a few years. Currently my food passion is in the sport of Competition BBQ. My husband and I have been competing in Competition BBQ for the past 6 years as Crimson Q, honing our pitmaster skills. We've progressively improved with many top ten finishes and almost always at least one top ten category finish per contest this year. For the past 2 years, I competed in the WFC Cowboy Charcoal Fire & Ice contest in Orange Beach and finished 9th in year one and 4th last year. This year we decided to jump into the kitchen arena instead and try our hand at that side of WFC!
