Let Me Help You Build Your Skills

From the very basics to using advanced techniques

Food grilled using charcoal is hands down better than food grilled using gas. I know there will be those who will argue in favor of propane gas just for the sake of convenience. Sure there is some extra work involved in using charcoal, but like many other things in life, good food takes a bit of effort, skill and time.

If you're new to using a charcoal grill, or maybe its been a while I know that it can seem a bit intimidating. But the fact of the matter is that its really not all that complicated. With a bit of practice anyone can develop the skills needed to grill delicious food over a charcoal fire, and that includes you!

In this course I'll teach you everything from the very basics such as how to light your grill, to advanced techniques such as temperature control and cooking with zones. Whether you just want to learn to grill some burgers, or your looking to get into smoking pork butts and ribs, this course can help you!

Over the past 3 years I have helped a lot of folks get started using their charcoal grills. In fact, my YouTube videos on the topic have received over 3,000,000 views and thousands of positive comments to date!

Grilling and BBQ is something that I am passionate about, and its something that I want to share with as many folks as possible! I hope to see others get the same amount of enjoyment out of cooking on their grills as I do.

My teaching approach is very simple and laid back. I try to break my instructions down so that they're easy to understand and follow along with. There is no use in over complicating things.
