Easy Barbecue Smoker Recipes And BBQ Grilling Tips

Easy barbecue smoker recipes, BBQ grilling tips and all the essential know how to help hone your pitmaster skills.

I'm Paul Yates and I'm sharing over 35 years experience of BBQ cooking, Barbecue Smoker Recipes concentrates on answering your most important questions about BBQ cooking and equipment purchases. Packed with loads of tips from our readers - information hard to find anywhere else - it's these snippets that will take your smoker cooking and grilling to another level.

How To Use Barbecue Smoker Recipes

  • If you have a specific barbecue question then use the search bar at the top of this (and every other) page. Your question may have been asked before and you'll find your answer in a matter of seconds. If you can't find what you are looking for then head for the BBQ forum.
  • For recipes use the left hand navigation bar. Each recipe is categorised by its main meat ingredient and from there each page is sectioned into BBQ smoker recipes and easy grilling recipes. You'll also find some kamado cooking recipes too because I cook on my Monolith kamado pretty much all the time.

"You are knowledgeable and provide great answers to a lot of the FAQs that most people just make assumptions about. I've never been able to smoke meat before but have always enjoyed it, this site provides a lot of good facts and information for the new smoker!" thanks,

My site is updated daily with new information either directly by me or from you via the BBQ forum.

Whether it's cooking or eating, whether it's today or way back in time when man first learned that cooking meat on a fire was good, BBQ to me is all about community and sharing...so join in and let me know what you think.

Maybe you can tell from this photo, I'm a BBQ chef, not a photographer!

Here's the other things that you need to know:

  1. I'm English. That means I approach some of my recipes from a different point of view to traditional American barbecue. That said, you'll still find all the usual favourites and it doesn't matter where in the globe you come from, all tips, techniques are backed up in science.
  2. I run a barbecue catering business so we experience BBQ from all angles and if you want barbecue to be your business I'm more than happy to share.
  3. I also make and sell charcoal barbecues. Does that make me biased? Certainly we make the grills the way we do to ensure that they work well, we also use the materials we think are best...without compromise. That doesn't mean they are right for everyone so I'm sure you'll find our other equipment reviews objective. You see all the BBQ stuff we do in the right hand column.

Finally, this site makes money in a number of ways. As a kamado cooking enthusiast I sell what I believe to be the best value kamado called Monolith. You'll also find advertising, product links to merchant sites, the sale of our custom hand built stainless steel charcoal barbecues and replacement stainless steel grills / cooking grates. If you buy anything whether directly of indirectly as a result of information that you found on this site then I heartily thank you.
