Award-winning Plowboys holds homegating event to celebrate fall, local food and barbeque

“Experimentation and discovery of smoking and grilling is my passion.” Todd Johns

Todd Johns, founder and chief pitmaster of Plowboys Barbeque, and his brother-in-law Randy Hinck started the barbecue competition team Pork Pullin Plowboys in 2001. By 2009, the team had racked up 22 KCBS-sanctioned competitions in seven states and five championship wins. The most sensational moment was when Plowboys returned to the American Royal Invitational and was crowned the American Royal Grand Champion.

This weekend, Plowboys Barbeque is throwing an amazing Homegating Celebration and you’re invited!
