being cooked. Until now…

Myron Mixon: The Winningest Man in Barbeque

Myron Mixon learned to barbeque from his father, Jack Mixon, when he was just old enough to hold a shovel to add coals to his father’s pits. Barbeque was the family business, but it wasn’t until his father passed away in 1996 that Myron entered his first competition. He figured it would help him get exposure for Jack’s line of sauces and support his family. At a contest in Augusta, Georgia, he took first place in whole hog, first place in pork ribs, and third in pork shoulder. Since then, he’s won more barbecue competitions than anyone else in the world. He’s won over 200 grand championships resulting in over 1,800 total trophies, 30 state championships, 8 Team of the Year awards, 11 national championships, first place for whole hog at the Jack Daniels World Championship Invitational Barbeque Competition, and has been the Grand Champion at the World Championship at Memphis in May five times. His team is the only team to win Grand Championships at Memphis in May, Kansas City BBQ Society, and the Florida BBQ Association in the same year. In 2013, he was inducted into the Barbecue Hall Fame in Kansas City. In 2018, he was awarded the Carolyn and Gary Well “Pioneer of Barbeque” Award by the Jack Daniel’s World Championship Invitational Barbecue.
