“At a very young age, I fell in love with BBQ and grilling. Memories of my dad and grandfather cooking outdoors still ring vividly in my mind. Whenever I smell meat grilling over a live fire, this activates these wonderful memories of spending time with my family and grilling food outdoors. My love for grilling never left. I can remember buying my first grill after leaving home. In fact, I think I bought a grill before I bought a dining table.
In 2009, my wife and I were having my sister and brother-in-law over for dinner. I was BBQing a pork shoulder and for some reason, I decided to video myself during the cook. I uploaded the video onto YouTube, and the rest is history.” -Greg Mrvich
