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.

Our Motto


In Lonesome Dove, Augustus McCrae states that every outfit needs a Latin motto. Well, here's ours:



Acta non verba, in incendia verum


Loosely translated: Action not words, in fire is truth

Sweet Obsession

Check out our awesome BBQ trailer, "Sweet Obsession" on our Smokers and Equipment page. The name says it all.  We are constantly adding items and functionality.  Check back here often to see what we are doing and look for us out there on the competition trail on our Cookoffs and Results page.
