Chris Johns started The BBQ Report to share his passion for everything grilling and meat-related. He’s traveled all around the United States, trying all the best barbecue recipes and learning the best techniques for grilling and smoking.
One of the primary lessons he’s learned on his travels is that there are almost as many techniques to prepare barbecue dishes as there are barbecue joints. From the juicy chopped pork sandwiches at Central Barbecue in Memphis to the unbelievable smoked ribs at Joe’s Kansas City Bar-B-Que, the world of barbecue is truly endless.
He’s also spent years trying out many different grills and barbecue tools, learning which is best for different needs, price points, and cooking techniques.
Our team of product testers comes from various backgrounds and regions. Some are backyard warriors while others are professional competitive chefs. What unites us all is our love for barbecue and our desire to share barbecue knowledge with the world.
We thoroughly search the web to find the best grills and barbecue tools available today. Our team reviews all the top brands and products, looking for the best features for the most affordable prices. We don’t simply trust a brand’s marketing material; we vigorously test our products for durability, quality, and features to find the real truth.
