Jay's journey into the restaurant world took a unique path compared to his brother's. Rather than starting with a passion for cooking, Jay began as a tradesman in printing, working for various local print companies to provide for his family. However, his interest in barbecue competitions ignited a new passion within him.

Teaming up with friends, Jay delved into the world of barbecue competitions, where he found not only enjoyment but also valuable feedback and opportunities to learn. It was during this time that he collaborated with his father, Junior, and his older brother, Chad, to design his own custom smokers. Countless hours were spent in experimentation, trial and error, and rigorous testing to perfect both the smokers themselves and Jay's smoking techniques.

This process was undoubtedly filled with challenges and setbacks, but Jay's dedication and perseverance paid off as he honed his craft. His journey from the world of printing to the realm of barbecue showcases the transformative power of pursuing one's passions and the importance of hard work and collaboration in achieving success.

During his time at Kansas State, Jason soaked up knowledge like a sponge and honed his skills through hands-on experience with various restaurant concepts.

But Jason's thirst for adventure didn't stop there. Seeking new challenges and opportunities, he found himself in the vibrant cities like Tampa, Florida, Dallas and Houston Texas, and even Memphis, Tennessee, where he immersed himself in the bustling hospitality scene, gaining invaluable insights and forging connections that would shape his future.

However, it wasn't until Jason decided to pursue his Master's in Hospitality Management with the University of North Texas that he truly solidified his long-term plan. Armed with advanced knowledge and a fresh perspective, he was ready to take on the next chapter of his career.

After several years away from his roots, Jason felt a pull to return home to the Kansas City area. With a wealth of experience under his belt, he was eager to contribute to the local restaurant scene and work with like-minded individuals who shared his passion for culinary excellence.
