Hey, Future Pitmaster

I’m Christie Vanover, and I’m here to help you learn how to grill, barbecue and smoke. I’ve won multiple BBQ championships, and I’m a certified barbecue judge. I’ve judged several world championships alongside BBQ hall of famers. I’ve bottled up what I’ve learned over the years to develop a site dedicated to making you a pitmaster.
