Being Italian, it was only natural that Dionn was raised in the kitchen. Cooking is not her only passion, as she is raising three daughters :Kendal, Selah, and Averi and a son Lincoln. She enjoys meeting new people and has never met a stranger. Over the last few years, she has been a major force in building one of the most respected teams on the competition BBQ circuit.
Not wanting to fall victim to the "fast food" generation, Gary found a love for cooking early in life by helping his grandfather and Uncle Steve smoke whole hogs for family reunions. This fueled his passion for BBQ where a Big Green Egg became his first BBQ pit. Practice, practice and more practice allowed him to learn the art of BBQ smoking through controlled air flow.
