Travis Murphy / President

Travis is the Pitmaster for Gold-N-Blue Barbecue out of Martinsburg, WV. He got involved with competition BBQ in 2018 and has been serious about it ever since. Smokers of choice for Gold-N-Blue are hand built drum smokers, including their very own “T-Drum”. Travis is a strong advocate for the backyard circuit and has been a valued part of getting the backyard series off the ground and grown within MABA.

Outside of BBQ, Travis and his wife, Lauren are very active with the 4-H program and both serve as leaders, board members, and officers of different 4-H clubs and associations. They have 3 kids, a daughter Arlie, and twin newborns, Brisan and Caden.
