HRIS FINERAN, WINNER
of the second Pitmaster of
the Year award, has traveled the Carolinas for several seasons and went from
being the last-place finisher to the best,
also winning the 2016 North Carolina
state championship.
But more importantly, as the miles
have rolled up, he's enjoyed the labor
of love.
"We go from North Myrtle Beach
four hours to Murphysboro, which is
the farthest up that way that I go. And
I go to Mount Airy, N.C., which is five
to five and a half hours," he said. "So
out of all the barbecue cooks, I believe
I travel the furthest. I am actually the
only barbecue [competitor] who travels
out of South Carolina."
He won the 2016 title with consistency.
