7/29/16 - DEUCE Lifestyle: Introducing the Pitmaster

It’s not the first time we’ve been graced with the presence and food of Three Ten BBQ. In fact, we ate like kings a this past annual Memorial Day “Murph” thanks to head pitmaster Tom Paccioretti. Tom trains at DEUCE in the GPP program and uses his training to represent DEUCE Racing while he competes in his sport.

What’s his sport you ask? It’s competitive BBQ, of course.

Expect to see the smoker rolling on Thursday afternoons. Tom will be dishing out fine smoked meats and even BBQ classes because, well, it’s not always all about push ups and barbells.
