More About David Mixon
David Mixon is a third generation of his family barbecue business, focusing his knowledge on the commercial sales of Myron Mixon Smokers.  David’s first recollection of barbecue is standing around the brick pits while his grand-daddy Jack cooked whole shoulders and his grandmother made their Ga Vinegar sauce from scratch.  When his dad started competing in 1996, David and his brother tagged along to the different competitions across the country.  A little over a year after working at a local bank out of college, David joined the family business at the Smoker company.  David is passionate about the business of barbecue and its expansion as an industry. David and his wife Karlie recently introduced the next
generation of the Mixon family with their son, Jackson.
The National Barbecue & Grilling Association (NBBQA) is a 501(c)(6) non-profit trade association founded in January 1991 and incorporated in the State of North Carolina in 1993. The organization was created to address the needs of the broad, diverse and growing barbecue industry.
At the time the association was formed, there were a variety of organizations specifically focused on a particular segment or region of the barbecue world, but no single group designed to unite and strengthen the industry overall. Since that time, the NBBQA has grown into an organization over 2,000 members, connecting all branches of the barbecue “family tree” to share, learn and celebrate. From restaurateurs, caterers and suppliers to competitors and the public at large, our members represent anyone with a personal or professional passion for this great American culinary tradition.
