Moe Cason


Ponderosa BBQ Team is the name of Moe’s 1 man championship barbecue team out of Des Moines, Iowa. He has participated in 20 contests every year since 2006. Moe Cason was a finalist on last year’s BBQ Pitmasters show on The Learning Channel (TLC). He competed for $100,000 and the Kingsford Cup trophy against some of the biggest names in Barbeque.


Moe cooks competitively on the Kansas City BBQ Society (KCBS) circuit using an Ole Hickory Pit and a Big Green Egg and is currently in the top twenty five in the country in the ribs and pork shoulder categories.


We are very pleased to have Moe Cason coming to the Kentucky State BBQ Festival. This will be your chance to taste some of the creative Barbecue cooking that powered Moe’s drive to the BBQ Pitmasters Finals.
