Mallard's Bar-B-Que was born out of a love for great tasting food and cooking for people. It all started when I was in college, I decided to try my hand at smoking some ribs for me and my roommates for the Kansas City Royal's season opener. Little did I know, that was just the beginning of a new passion for myself. Over the course of the next few years, this newfound passion developed into atleast a weekly event of smoking everything from steaks, to ribs and fish. I eventually was gifted a smokology class at the Culinary Center of Kansas City, where I learned many of the techniques I use today. Eventually I was asked by a good friend to cater their wedding, this was the real beginning. I started taking on catering gigs, developing and refining all of my rubs, sauces, and recipes till they were perfected. Fast forward to today, alot of things have changed from the inexperienced college kid I once was. I have the love and support of my beautiful wife to pursue my dreams, as well as the most perfect little daughter. I am proud to call myself a Pitmaster with over a decade of learning and experience, honing in on my craft and passion, turning it into a way of living.
