About Me

grill and accessories - about me

Hello and welcome to my website, Grill and Accessories. You found my grilling blog by looking for something specific.

Here you will find everything you need to grill like a professional or, your family will at least think you are.

How Did I Get Here

Firstly, I retired from the U.S. Navy in 1998. That is to say, that I stood up to help protect the freedom we enjoy today. Now, I didn’t start out this story to be on a soapbox. I just felt it is a critical aspect of my entire story.

Although I grew up in the Navy, so to speak, I have been cooking for my family for well over 30 years. That is to say, I have cooked a few pigs in my life. Now, for the record, I am not a professional griller. Meaning I do not compete in BBQ contests, I don’t have a huge trailer with a smoker on the back, and you will not find me in a food truck on the side of the road.

Over the years, I have cooked on camp stoves, open fires, gas grills, charcoal grills, smokers, and pellet grills.

I am not boasting just letting you know my credentials. There are some types of equipment that I haven’t had the pleasure yet of trying. I reveal them as they come along.

Aside from being a Family man that loves to grill, I am also a Realtor, a Real Estate Investor, and a Network Marketer, and an internet marketer.

Passion Helps

Being from Virginia, I grew up eating a certain type of BBQ. I have traveled all over the world and tried many types of BBQ. It seems like every region has their own version.

Funny thing is, they all claim to be the best. My intent is to uncover some of the best tools, the best grills, and the best recipes. I hope to share my experience in order to help you not feel intimidated at the grill.

This passion I have for grilling has made my family appreciate the art of cooking outside.

Why Do I Do This

My intention for this blog is to bring information and passion that will allow you to see how easy it is to make your own BBQ that will taste better than any restaurant you can find.

That is to say, I don’t wish to take anything away from the professionals. Certainly, there are better Pit Masters out there than I can ever be. But I do believe I can hold my own if I had too.

All you need is the desire to succeed. So grab the pig and a beer, and I will get the grill and accessories and we will have some fun.

Certainly, I must say I do get paid a small commission on some programs and products that I write about. It is called Affiliate Marketing. You can read more details of this disclosure in my affiliate disclosure.

However, I will not promote a product that I believe will not work. That is to say, I will straight up tell you if I don’t like a specific product I am writing about. It is not all about money.

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best,
