Meet Dr. BBQ
BBQ Hall of Famer Ray Lampe grew up in Chicago and after high school spent 25 years in the family trucking business. In 2000 the trucking business had run its course, and it was time for Ray to try something new. He had been participating in BBQ cookoffs as a hobby since 1982, so he decided to take a leap and turn his hobby into a career. In 2000, Lampe moved to Florida and began his career as an outdoor cooking expert. In 2023 Lampe introduced his new lineup of “Hall Of Fame BBQ Rubs."
