Check Out Other Great Grilling and Barbecue People
I've been fortunate to have some great grillers in the family, particulaly my Dad (now deceased) and also some fabulous online barbecue friends who are so generous with outdoor cooking tips and ideas and also just to gab about barbecue and grilling.Here are some of my favorite barbecue sites online.
Grilling Web Sites
Sizzle on the Grill - CB packs the Char-Broil website with loads of great grilling information. I do some guest grill chef recipes now and then for Sizzle. Also, CB lives on a house boat - how cool is that?
The Gary Glen Experience - Gary has a web site packed with all kinds of grilling and barbecue information. He also tells me how to fix things in my house. Great guy.
Cooking Outdoors - Ah. I have another friend named Gary. He has a very well organized outdoor cooking site with great ideas and even some contests. You will have fun at Gary's grilling site.
The BBQ Grail - Larry is great on the grill and smokes too. He invented MOINKs which are bacon wrapped grilled meatballs - one of our all time favorite treats on the grill or smoker.
Barbecue Web Sites
Amazing Ribs - Meathead knows his smokers and how to do all kinds of foods low and slow. Get solid product reviews, tips, and recipes for smoking outdoors.

Big Butz BBQ - We're talking some great barbecue sauce here. BB knows how to rock it. Be sure to try his cranberry barbecue sauce - great on grilled turkey meatballs.

Grill Charms - Leslie Haywood has the neatest grill charms - like wine charms but to put in meat on the grill. Fun and also make great gifts for your favorite grillers.
Red Envelope - RE did send me a sample personalized grill gear set, but I get products pretty often (as noted in posts). The high quality puts them on my friend list. I have several of their beautiful grill products on my personal wish list now.
Other Friends (well worth a visit though not totally grillers)
Trippin' in the Kitchen - I met Tripp Rion in New York City when he was the Weber Grill chef host at a media showcase of the new grills. He cooks inside and out, and he's funny as heck. Southern guy too. Check him out.

Katrena Allison - My sister, a nurse, is a feature writer at Suite 101 for Seniors' Health. She also writes a lot of articles on children, travel, and working out. She's pretty new to writing, but she has a great style and solid information.
In Case You Were Wondering
*Note - These are not paid links or link trades. Paid links would be advertisements or sponsor links and noted. A couple of friends or companies have sent sample products over the years, but that was not considered when I made (and add to) my friends page. Some of my friends may link Barbecue Master or Yes You Can Grill; others don't. I don't ask bloggers or site owners to link my spaces. I hope to earn those honors and do appreciate when people do share my space. These are simply people and spaces that I know and enjoy, and I think you will too.
