Cool Smoke, Official Team of Q Barbecue, the team Members are Chief Pitmaster Tuffy Stone, George Stone (Tuffy’s Father), and occasionally his wife and friends. Cool Smoke BBQ Team was formed by Tuffy Stone in 2004. Tuffy earned himself the nickname of “The Professor”, because of his never-ending quest for knowledge and the attention to detail! Cool Smoke has hundreds of awards including 37 Grand Championships, three World Championships, and the title of Kansas City BBQ Society Team of the Year in 2007. Cool Smoke has created some amazing BBQ Rubs and Sauces as a result, and we encourage you to give them all a try!
