Team Bio

Crapshoot BBQ was founded by Houston BBQ cooks Craig Sharry and Doug Dennin in 2004. They began cooking on a Gator Pit Bandit, a 20” diameter offset with an upright and currently cook on a Gator Pit Competitor. The team has enjoyed some success since its formation including the TGCBBQCA Cooker Of The Year award for Craig as well as Grand Champion at the 2007 North Harris County College CATE Festival which garnered an invitation to the American Royal in October 2007. After the Royal, Doug Dennin retired from competition BBQ to prepare for permanent retirement in the Philippines some time in 2008. Doug still cooks at home and supports us at the comps when he can and always coaches us from the sidelines. Darwin was recruited in February of 2007 to train as the newest team member.
