Three bros originally from High Point, NC on a mission to experience barbecue in all forms at any joint we can find. We’ll eat it, we’ll rate it, and we’ll rank it all for the common good.
Monk is a graduate of NC State University and has lived in Charlotte since 2005. Monk married a fellow NC State grad in 2010 (where Speedy was the best man and Rudy was an usher in the wedding) and has two daughters. Besides barbecue, he enjoys film, music, TV, and sports including football, basketball, and soccer (choice Mrs. Monk quote: “Does it ever end?”).
Rudy is a graduate of the University of Miami (FL), and lives in Holland, MI with his wife and three young kids. While Rudy grew up enjoying pork barbecue in NC, he broadened his horizons in Texas, and learned to enjoy the splendor that is beef barbecue.
Speedy is a graduate of Wake Forest University who now resides in Nashville. He currently works as an accountant, where his company sends him all over the country to audit different clients (read: try different barbecue joints in random cities). He is an avid sports enthusiast and holds season tickets to both the Memphis Grizzlies (where he spends time for work) and the Bobcats Hornets. As of summer 2014 is no longer boycotting Wake Forest athletics. Speedy enjoys long walks on the beach, fast cars, and slow kisses.
