Grilling is in my blood. I grew up in a restaurant family and spent my summers serving steaks and burgers to hungry tourists near a National Park in Southern Utah. I’ve been a carnivore since I had teeth to chew with and have always loved serving up the best meals to my friends and family.
I continued my love for all things grilling as I took a job as a recipe developer for a local company that made wood-fired grills. As I tried new techniques and recipes, I really started to hone in on my own style that was built on old school tradition with a twist of new flavors and methods. When I moved on from that job, I knew I couldn’t stop building and creating recipes. That’s how heygrillhey.com was born.
The Grill Squad evolved from Hey Grill Hey to offer something a little more hands-on and educational than I could do in a written blog post or YouTube video. I wanted a resource that would have helped me back when I had this amazing smoker, but no easy-to-follow set of information to increase my confidence and mastery.
My whole goal with The Grill Squad and my Meat Masterclasses is to share with you a technique-based, comprehensive knowledge in one convenient place to help you improve your skills in the backyard and to build a community of people, who are enthusiastic in their support each other and stretching themselves to create their own recipes and marvelous BBQ.
So, what does that mean for you? When you join The Grill Squad, you’re getting first-class access to the wealth of knowledge I’ve amassed as an industry pro. I’ve broken two Guinness World Records for the longest grilling marathon and participation in the largest grilling class. I’ve cooked alongside Food Network chefs Tyler Florence, Bobby Flay, and Michael Symon. I taught Shaq (yes, that Shaq) how to spatchcock a turkey.
Everything I’ve learned along the way - I’m sharing it with you, our Grill Squad Members.
