The King of Barbecue

Hailing from Unadilla, Georgia, Pitmaster Myron Mixon is the winningest man in barbecue. As a four-time world barbecue champion, he was inducted into the prestigious Barbecue Hall of Fame in Kansas City. Myron is widely recognized as the most successful and charismatic man in barbecue. He’s been dubbed “The King,” “The Best Hog Cooker in the World,” the “Winningest,” and more nicknames than he can shake a stick at.

Myron’s a downright fierce competitor and learned everything he knows about cooking great barbecue from his dad, Jack Mixon. Barbecue has always been and continues to be a family affair for him. His brother Tracy, sons Michael and David, and other close family members and friends are part of his Jack’s Old South Competition BBQ team.
