About
Why I Grill

While there are endless reasons to grill, each one is personal.

Maybe you grill to relax. Your backyard is your oasis, your respite, your happy place. The flame is your focal point. Maybe you grill for nostalgia. Backyard barbecues make up your happiest memories. Your grill is your time machine to your best moments growing up. Maybe you grill to step it up. You’re in your new home. You’re starting a new family. Your grill tells the world your adulting game is lit. Or maybe, just maybe, you grill for the sheer joy of cooking. The sizzle on the grates, the smell rising to the sky, the juices dripping on the coals. No matter the reason, we love that you love our favorite pastime.
