Here are some BBQ friends that I know you will love visiting.
Crown BBQ: A Catering and Competition Team that are putting out great products and recipes!
BBQ with Jeff: A nice site by barbecue enthusiast Jeff Hillyard. Jeff is up to five grills so far but I suspect there will be a few more in his future. Once you start collecting grills it is hard to stop! Check out Jeff’s smoked Beef Back Ribs recipe.
Food-Fire: Go hang out with Dave and his Big Green Egg and learn how to prepare some righteous gluten free barbecue!
MMMGoBluBBQ : This a site run by my buddy, Joe. Joe is a diehard Michigan fan who has been transplanted to Texas. Be sure to start with his recipe for bacon wrapped onion rings and start exploring from there.
Grilling 24×7 : A great site run by my buddy, John over near Baltimore, MD. I have been extremely jealous of John ever since he scored a great gig writing bbq articles for Kingsford Charcoal. Be sure to check out his recipe for Homemade Big Macs and his easy recipe for a homemade BBQ sauce made from a stout beer!
AmazingRibs.com : A wonderful reference site by Meathead Goldwyn. This is one of the best “go-to”sites on the internet and has excellent product reviews.
Q4Fun : A great blog run by a guy named Steve who claims to be an Average Joe! If he finds a product he likes, he enjoys telling his friends about it and why he likes it. If he finds a restaurant where he likes the food, he shares it with his friends. Go Check Steve out; he’ll treat you right!
BBQFood4U : This site is run by my highly creative Canadian buddy, Kinger. His site is fun but where he really shines is on his YouTube channel. Head over to YouTube now and subscribe; you will be happy that you did!
BBQBros : Awesome site run by my buddy, Steve in Florida. Steve has awesome recipes, great product reviews and puts together some very informative videos. Here is the link to his YouTube channel; this is a great channel to subscribe.
BBQ Pro Shop: If you want a high end ceramic smoker then head over to the BBQ Pro Shop and let Gretchen and Jeff take care of you!
Extraordinary BBQ: Kevin runs a great site and shares insights from his experience on the competition circuit as well as great everyday bbq recipes. Kevin maintains an active newsletter that I enjoy getting every Saturday. Be sure to sign up; it’s an easy way to stay in touch with a great guy! Be sure to check out his technique for award winning chicken thighs.
Mark’s Tree Farm : Mark runs a small family tree farm in Connecticut. He is a GREAT resource for buying wood for your smoker. Mark has the standard woods (hickory and apple) but also has some hard to come by woods like Red Oak and Wild Cherry. You can get 25-30 pounds of Wild Cherry from Mark for about $30…you will get a great product while supporting a family run business.
Big Wayner : Wayne runs a great site that keeps you up to date with all of the latest barbecue news. He also does some pretty good rub and sauce reviews. Go drop by and tell him, “Howdy!” and find something tasty to buy!
Sweet n Savory : A fun couple up in Canada selling some great smoked pepper powders!
No Excuses BBQ : There are plenty of folks talking up Texas barbecue and more than enough people filling us in on the Carolinas. If you are ready for something a bit different check out Paul’s website, No Excuses BBQ coming to you from the Pacific Northwest!
Another Pint Please : Mike runs an incredible site with fantastic photography. Mike’s work has been so awesome that he is now an “Official Weber Griller”. He is bald and he has clones.
Barbecue Rankings : Go check out where Johnny has been eating! Johnny is traveling across the country and discovering the 100 best barbecue restaurants in America. Very cool!
The Virtual Weber Bullet : The place to find tons of experts in working Weber grills and smokers. I don’t post over there nearly enough but that is just because I am lazy. The folks there are great!
