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.

At the base of the pyramid in Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is the physiological component. Without the sustenance of our basic physiological needs, nothing else matters. In other words, self-actualization seems silly when you’re starving.If we zoom in on that physiological foundation, however, I bet you’ll be surprised ...

Sometimes I openly describe my resistance to gym rat tendencies and a lack of interest in biceps and hard workouts. Don't confuse that with a belief that this stuff lacks importance. Though it's true that my boat isn't floated, if you will, by hardcore exercise, I do believe strongly in everything that we do. In fact, every ...
