HEAD COOK: Eric Hodson
COMPETITION: World Invitational Steak Championship
BNO started in 2006 as a group of single guys that liked to cook and loved to party! Our focus shifted from the party to preparing world class BBQ in 2010. The hard work began paying off in 2012 when we won several Grands (2 of which were coveted sweeps!) and were named the MBN Team of the Year, as well as Hog, Shoulder and Rib Team of the Year - a feat never before seen in MBN! We came out on top and repeated this success in 2013- again being named MBN Team of the Year, as well as Hog, Shoulder and Rib Team of the Year. We were also fortunate enough to win the MBN Invitational in both 2015 & 2016. Once we branched out into the SCA world, I was beyond elated to bring home the gold at the 2017 SCA WORLD Championship in Ft Worth, TX! In 2018, White Lightning struck again, getting me to the Top 10 round at WFC! I’m hoping to repeat that in 2019!
