Lion Joe in his day was the King of the pit. Lion Ronald Luedke and Lion David Mc Clinton took over as Pit Leaders when Joe was no longer able to due to his health. Joe always fussed at Lion Ronald and Lion David for cutting all the fat off the briskets. Joe would always say, “That's the best part”.
The following photos will show Lion Joe’s participation in Lion events.
