Thanks for stopping by. I’m Christie Vanover, and I’m here to help you learn how to grill, barbecue and smoke. I’m a 2022 California State Barbecue Champion, a 2021 Nevada State Barbecue Champion and the 2020 Nevada Barbecue Association Team of the Year. I’m also a certified barbecue judge and have judged multiple world championships alongside several BBQ hall of famers. I’ve bottled up what I’ve learned over the years to develop Grill Smoke U – a site dedicated to making you a pitmaster.
