Tuffy Stone from "BBQ Pitmasters" is one of the judges on the Destination America reality competition series. He was formerly one of the pitmasters featured in Season 1. He owns Q Barbecue and A Sharper Palate in Richmond, Virginia.

Classically trained French chef and former Marine, Tuffy Stone, aka "The Professor," began researching slow cooking barbecue methods and in 2004, the Cool Smoke Team was born. Since then, Cool Smoke has won 30 grand championships in large part due to Tuffy's unique obsession with the physics and science of wood, smoke, spices, and molecular composition of meat to the point at which he creates barbecue perfection.

Season 1

Tuffy Stone's team name is Cool Smoke. He calls his style of pit Jambo Pit or Offset Style Pit. He uses hickory wood and calls it the "Grillvette." He and his team have won around $125,000 in competition since 2005. His favorite BBQ category to cook is either chicken or ribs, but if he had to choose one it would be chicken. His favorite meal other than BBQ is a steak, caesar salad, and a "chewy" red wine.

He says that too many people over smoke their BBQ and that this can be prevented by running a clean fire and by wrapping the meat with aluminum foil after it has a nice color.
