The barbeque community mourns the passing of Rory Richmond. Rory wore many hats in our BBQ world. He was a judge, promoter, and most of all an ambassador spreading bbq love to all. He was the main man to host Kansas City Barbecue Society certification classes and promote the Clayton BBQ Festival. He was a fixture at many competitions promoting these great events. We all sat next to him at the judges table one time or another. His knowledge and dedication was an inspiration to us all. Rory left us way to early and it is a sad day to say goodbye.
