Known throughout the BBQ world simply as "The Legend," Mike Mills and his Apple City Barbecue Team was the first three-time Grand Champion of the Memphis in May Barbecue Competition. "I barbecued all my life. I've learned from a lot of people and I've helped a lot of people," Mills said. He is well known for his willingness to share his knowledge of barbecue, and has helped many people get into the barbecue business. He also co-authored the book, Peace Love and Barbecue, along with his daughter Amy, which shares stories and recipes of bbq pitmasters from around the country.
