KCBS Team Bios
DESPERADOYear Started: 2013
My name is Steve Botkin, a former test technician on the Space Shuttles, GPS Satellites and other high technology space crafts. I am the head pitmaster of the registered KCBS, CBBQA and IBCA barbecue team Desperado. I have been smoking barbecue for more than thirty years. With my bbq passion I cook, grill and smoke meats many different ways. There is nothing like the smell of barbecue in a smoker along with the taste of great barbecue you get from low or fast cooking.
