Welcome to tasteofBBQ
If this is your first visit to tasteofBBQ then you may be interested in knowing more about the website and the people behind it.
This website was originally created by me, Ian Bowen.
I'm continuously updating it with new BBQ & grilling recipes and tips with a lot of support and input from my family, friends and visitors to tasteofBBQ who share a similar passion for creating and eating really good food.
OK, some of these folks enjoy the eating part more than the creating part but their feedback is invaluable.
First, let me tell you what the purpose of tasteofBBQ is...
It's a great resource website for people who want to take their BBQ & Grilling experience beyond plain boxed hamburgers and mystery-meat hot dogs.
It's for people just like you and me that want to have fun at the grill and at the same time provide delicious gourmet meals for our families and friends.
It's for all us to share our experience, love and enthusiasm for BBQ & grilling with each other.
And I've been at the grill experimenting, making mistakes, learning and having fun producing gourmet grilled food for over 25 years.
Now, and just as important, here's what tasteofBBQ isn't...
It isn't about competition BBQ. I prefer to leave that to reality TV. I have no desire to stay up all night cooking ribs and brisket just for a panel of judges to taste.
And I'm not into reality TV. Kind of an oxymoron if you ask me.
But hey, good for those that do like that sort of thing. Just not my thing and maybe not yours.
It's also unlike many of the larger corporate recipe websites that have thousands of user recipes online.
We've hundreds of recipes but they're dedicated just to barbecue & grilling and we've tested them until they're perfect.
Tough job but someone's got to do it!
Likewise, tasteofBBQ has also been designed to be unlike many other BBQ & Grilling websites that simply give you a list of ingredients and you're on your own.
I'm very much a visual person. I'm drawn to clean, simple websites and blogs that feature lot's of pictures.
Each tasteofBBQ recipe and tip provides you with photographic step-by-step instructions.
It takes us a little longer to develop new recipes, photograph each step and upload new files.
But I think it adds much more value and it's worth the extra effort.
Stay tuned, we're now adding videos and eBooks too!
All I had was this burning desire to share over 25 years of BBQ and grilling experience, share what I've learned through all of my mistakes and share my personal collection of grilling recipes.
It's been a tremendous learning experience, lot's of fun and hopefully tasteofBBQ has been improving since 2011, it's beginning to take on a life of it's own.
There's a comments section with each recipe so you can share your thoughts and suggestions as well.
tasteofBBQ is very much a labor of love so if you like this site as much as I do then please visit often to see what's new!
In the end, what's most important is being able to share what I think are some of the best BBQ & Grilling recipes I know of. I hope you enjoy them and come back often.
