Born to Grill ™

Self-taught culinary masters. Award-winning BBQ champions. Social media juggernauts. Hard-working culinary bloggers. From start to finish, there are three things each one of these featured personalities has in abundance: ample positivity, serious work ethic, and a great love for all things BBQ.

At BBQGuys, we love the time-honored tradition of making friends and sharing stories around a piping hot grill. But great storytellers know when to let others speak. We love showcasing rising #BornToGrill stars in the industry — and it’s why we’re interviewing these diverse faces in barbecue with meaningful chats meant to help these stars shine while sharing their stories. Whether they’re featured grill masters in our Master Grillabilities® lessons or just fun-loving chefs and foodies who caught our eye, we’re planting a beacon on our favorite friends in BBQ. Pull up a chair, grab a bite, and listen — and find yourself a new friend to follow.
