Arkansas native, Putts, joined the US Marines right after high school. While in the Marines he was known for his love of cooking and BBQ'ing. At the later days of his service, his love of BBQ drove him to participate in the popular BBQ competitions. His team was named Devil Dogs BBQ.  Ultimately, after 20 years of service, Putts retired in 2013 and this is when Devil Dogs BBQ catering  was officially born.

 Our name and logo are the Devil Dog, the German Army coined this term of respect for U.S. Marines during World War I. In the summer of 1918 the German Army was driving toward Paris. The French Army was in full retreat. In a desperate effort to save Paris, the newly arrived U.S. Marines were thrown into the breach. In June 1918, in bitter fighting lasting for weeks, Marines repeatedly repulsed the Germans in Belleau Wood. The German drive toward Paris sputtered, fizzled, and died. Then the Marines attacked and swept the Germans back out of Belleau Wood. Paris had been saved. The battle tenacity and fury of the U.S. Marines had stunned the Germans. In their official reports they called the Marines "teufel hunden," meaning Devil Dogs, the ferocious mountain dogs of Bavarian folklore.
