Meet Tuffy Stone

Tuffy Stone is a six-time World Barbecue Champion pitmaster, author, former marine, and french-trained chef. Dubbed the “Professor,” Tuffy’s legendary precision and obsession with the science of smoke make him one of the most influential people in barbecue.

As a result of his continued success on the barbecue competition circuit with his Cool Smoke Barbecue team and his extensive knowledge of all things barbecue, Tuffy was selected to join Destination America’s show BBQ Pitmasters as a judge and co-host.

Tuffy was inducted into the Barbecue Hall of Fame in 2018…a night fueled by fire, friends and fine bourbon. And in late 2019, Tuffy opened The Westover, a casual neighborhood joint in Richmond, Virginia serving breakfast and lunch daily.
