Welcome to the BBQ Grill Academy, your one-stop source for all things BBQ grilling and smoking, along with helpful advice on BBQ tools, equipment, and gear.

My name is Alison, and I am the chief editor at BBQ Grilling Academy. We founded  BBQ Grilling Academy with the intention of sharing our BBQ knowledge and teaching our expertise for BBQ cuisine, grilling, and Outdoor living. We aim to assist beginners in mastering their BBQ grills while also teaching them new skills. BBQ grills were an integral part of my youth, and I continue to enjoy grilling and cooking for my family and friends.

My family and I spent hours around the barbecue cooking, laughing, and enjoying each other’s company. Family barbecues were an important part of our lives, and I grew up among some of the world’s best pitmasters. My team and I are both passionate about BBQ cuisine, grilling, and BBQ gear, and we want you to experience our enthusiasm by sharing our knowledge and writing engaging content. 

We like to think of ourselves as teachers of a way of life rather than just a skill set.

Enjoy Life!
