Over the years, Heath has been recognized by the Memphis BBQ Network, the Kansas City BBQ Society, and the Steak Cook-Off Association for mastering various cooking styles. While he was busy becoming a BBQ legend, he also managed to rack up 75+ championships, multiple perfect scores, and is the 2022 Memphis in May World Rib Champion.
