We are Never Easy BBQ from Des Moines, IA. We have been an Iowa BBQ Store sponsored team since the beginning of the 2020 season. Our team consists of Joe Osbrink and Ted Ross. We started bbqing on a cheap little bullet smoker in 2015 and were immediately hooked. We competed for the first time in 2016 and haven't looked back since. In 2017 and 2018 we finished 2nd in the Iowa BBQ Society Backyard Team of the Year standings. In 2019 we became the Iowa BBQ Society Backyard Team of the Year winning each category and overall. We began competing full time on the KCBS Master Series in 2020 and were able to win 2020 Iowa BBQ Society Pro Chicken Team of the Year.
We are very excited to represent the Iowa BBQ Store and #CornCookers

Bergey Boys Blazing BBQ is a competition BBQ team based out of southeastern Minnesota. Our addiction for competition BBQ began in 2014 when we entered our hometown BBQ contest with only two weeks’ notice. Our team originated with 3 brothers: Brock, Brandon, and Brady; along with our father, Donnie. In 2020, Kelly began assisting Brady with more contests and has become
a valuable part of the team. Our daughter, Madelyn is the head cook of Kids Que team, UniQue and even at her young age, has found success on the competition circuit. Our son, Braxton will be ready to compete soon as well. Brock, Brandon, and Donnie along with the rest of the Bergey family still attend contests whenever their schedules allow. We are very excited to partner and represent the Iowa Barbecue Store as a sponsored team in 2021. Go get em’ Team Corn Cookers!!
