The BBQ Angler Story

Ever had a dream job that came to an end too soon? While helping a retailer of outdoor kitchen builds, top tier grills, and BBQ lifestyle accessories create the edge in the industry, my love for the barbecue lifestyle grew hundredfold. But then my career path took a turn that took me away from spending every day around live fire. When I missed it dearly I vowed to do something about it.

What is BBQ Angler? It started as an Instagram home for sharing my BBQ cooks and bass catches online. When done well, both provide the same exhilaration. The name gives a nod to bass angling. It’s a style of fishing that is progressively more enjoyable as you practice and hone the techniques involved. Barbecue is exactly the same.

We created a series of Texas BBQ Experiences that create a fun environment conducive to helping people shed any fears they have about using all the grills and gadgets available to cook with in the backyard today.

You are invited to passionately pursue barbecue perfection with us.
