After competing in his first BBQ competition, Jason started his own seasoning named “Krippled Kids Steak Walk.”
Jason, diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy at 18 months of age, and who has been in a wheelchair for over 20 years, is an inspiration to the BBQ community and people of all abilities that you can accomplish your goals no matter what setbacks you might encounter.
Having a fantastic sense of a humor and a “can’t stop, won’t stop” attitude, Jason has quickly climbed through the ranks of the Steak Cookoff Association while competing alongside some of the best cookers in the world.
From the competition circuit to the business circuit, Jason opened Papo Joe Grilling Supplies with his newfound knowledge and skills.
With numerous of award winning products in stock daily, Papo Joe's new seasoning, Lady Luck, was just selected in the Top 3 by National BBQ News Rubs of Honor.
