MYRON MIXON was quite literarily born to barbecue. Raised in Vienna, Georgia,
his father Jack owned a BBQ restaurant which Myron helped run. His parents
started selling Jack's Old South BBQ Sauce, and after his father died in 1996,
Myron thought that by entering competitions he could sell some sauce. He was
hooked. He has appeared on the Today show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,
and the Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson.
