Nate Berg

My name is Nate Berg and I would be honored to be the newest member of the Minnesota BBQ Society
board. Bbq has been a cornerstone of my life for the past 17 years, and I hope that my experiences such
as managing multiple restaurants and owning a retail sauce company can add new outlook to the board.
I have been married to my wife Lindsay since June 2017. We have two cats and two dogs, and hope to
one day build a family of two legged children.

Being one of the youngest pit masters on the competition Bbq scene, I think I have fresh ideas. My six
years in competition Bbq have molded the cook that I am today and I look forward to more growth.
Within those six years, I have accomplished many personal goals including multiple grand
championships and reserve grand championships, multiple first place category calls and countless top 10 finishes.

Employment and Experience:

If elected to serve on the board, my goal would be to promote and grow the sport of bbq. I believe that
being an active competitor, I have views that can benefit other teams throughout the society.
