My BBQ Journey
I’ve been interested in BBQ for as long as I can remember! Some of my favourite early memories are from camping trips with family & friends, burning marshmallows on sticks, while the parents cooked over an open fire. Or Christmas and other special occassions, helping dad cook on the Weber, a 1987 Weber Kettle that takes pride of place in my arsenal, and is used on the regular.
Around 2010, I stumbled across BBQ Pitmasters online, and my interest (obsession!) with American BBQ began. Their series opened my eyes to the world of BBQ competitions and I knew I needed to get involved. I became an accredited judge for ABA, KCBS & SCA and I’ve been involved in competition BBQ as both a judge and competitor ever since!
