About Us

Tim's Tailgate BBQ Team was started by Tim and Kim Pregler in 2009 to cook great BBQ, perform some charitable works and HAVE FUN!! We have had some great family times and made some great friends along the way.


I learned the basics of outdoor cooking from my Dad back in Jenks Oklahoma on a Hasty Bake.  And to this day I still prefer to cook on Hasty Bakes and they have brought home the hardware for me.


Please enjoy our site and feel free to explore.  And please contact us with any questions or comments.

2015 Camp Craig Allen Charity BBQ

The 8th Annual BBQ Cook Off, benefiting Camp Craig Allen, will see a change of venue and date for 2015. This year’s BBQ Cook Off events will be held at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas. This is the largest amateur BBQ Cook Off Benefit in North Texas and the change is a great opportunity for the Frisco community to really get behind a grass roots project, with the intent to build Camp Craig Allen in Frisco. The event is scheduled for June 12-13, 2015, in the Corolla Red lot. Friday night is VIP night with All You Can Eat BBQ, live bands, silent auction and charity casino!!


This is a great event for beginning and experienced teams alike, it’s fun, family-friendly and all proceeds go to supporting Camp Craig Allen. For a $75 entry fee you can compete for bragging rights in any or all of the following categories:



Ribs (beef or pork)

Pork Butt


Open (anything goes except dog or horse)


One entry fee is required for pre-registration of your General BBQ team or Corporate BBQ teams (regardless of the number of categories entered) and one team entry is allowed per each of these above categories. Reserve Grand Champion and Grand Champion will be determined by the four primary BBQ entries, brisket, ribs, pork butt and chicken.


Jack Pot Beans (separate additional $10 cash PER ENTRY).

Jack Pot BBQ Sauce (separate additional $15 cash PER ENTRY)

The “cash pot” of money collected for Beans and for BBQ Sauce will be split 50/50 with Camp Craig Allen and one winner for Beans and one winner for BBQ Sauce. Any type of beans must be cooked on-site, with no pre soaking of beans allowed.
