Kathy Pullin

Pullin Premium BBQ for a Sweet n Sassy BBQ

Hailing from legendary BBQ oasis Kansas City, it should not be any surprise Kathy Pullin has a love for barbecue.

However, it wasn’t until Kathy participated with a team at the American Royal Open in 1994 and 1995 that she was truly hooked on the art of creating great BBQ.

Still working full time in the insurance industry, Kathy spent nights and weekends honing her craft by catering private events as Sassy Sauceless BBQ. In 2011, Kathy launched Pullin Premium BBQ and has never looked back. Kathy has retired from the insurance career to focus full-time on barbecue.

Kathy makes regular appearances on SA Living doing live cooking segments, catered several times for KJ97 at the San Antonio BBQ cook-off, and has cooked for several musical artists and tv personalities.

In her spare time, Kathy and her husband spend time at their beach house Texas Coast fishing and barbecuing. Kathy is a domestic violence survivor and volunteers at various domestic violence organizations in the area.
