Welcome to BBQ Grill Academy

Welcome to BBQ Grill Academy, your one-stop place for everything BBQ Grilling, BBQ Smoking, and great information on BBQ accessories and gear.

My name is Alison, and I am the chief editor at BBQ Grilling Academy. I co-founded BBQ Grilling Academy with the sole purpose of sharing with the world my passion for BBQ food, grilling, and help beginners master their grills. I grew up around BBQ grills and know how much joy I get from BBQ food and cooking for my friends. 

My family used to spend hours around the BBQ grilling, laughing, and enjoying each other’s company. Family BBQs were part of our lives, and I grew up around the best pitmasters in the world. My team and I hope to share great content and help you enjoy BBQ food as much as we do. Enjoy Life!
