Hey grill, heeeeeyy!
Super glad you’re here! I’m Susie and I love/obsess over all things grilled. If you do too, you’ve found the right site.
I’ve always loved to cook and eat (I grew up working in our family restaurant), but getting the courage to leave the kitchen and head for the patio changed the way I looked at food. Everything went from, “I could probably make that recipe” to… “How can I cook this on the grill?!” I’ve taken all of the steps and learned all of the hard lessons about outdoor cooking so you don’t have to. Every recipe I post has been cooked, consumed, and captured on camera by your’s truly. It has also been certified delicious by my super qualified taste testing team which includes (but is not limited to): my hilarious, talented and amazingly supportive husband AKA The Todd, my 3 kids, my mom, dad, brothers, sisters, and any neighbor within range when I’ve got more food than I can consume without needing to have my stomach pumped. If it’s not good, you won’t see it on this site (unless it was a major fail because I really like to laugh, especially at myself).
August 2015 I had the most incredible opportunity to travel to NYC and go for a Guinness World Record for the longest grilling marathon by a team. We smashed the old record and grilled consecutively for 34 hours and 35 minutes. You can read all about the experience HERE. I met Tyler Florence, Susie Fogelson, and Rob Bliefer (the exec chef at Food Network) and left with a consuming desire to have a cooking show! I’m working toward my dream by doing as many local lifestyle shows as I can and grilling non stop to sharpen my skills. I’m also a KCBS Certified BBQ judge and I teach live grilling classes (my last one had over 200 people attending!) I think if you put your dreams out there, you’re already one step closer to accomplishing them! So here it is, universe…. let’s make it happen!
While you’re here, browse the site, check out some recipes, and in the end don’t be afraid to bite off more than you can chew. If you’ve never grilled before, now is your shot. Risk tastes great.
Grill on, friends.
