A Note From Dave
I’ve been grilling and smoking meats for more than 40 years. When I was a kid, I would
watch my dad grill t-bone steaks to perfection over charcoal. I guess he passed that
tradition down to me.
Almost 10 years ago, I began publishing my recipes online. Those efforts evolved into
Dave’s BBQ List, a weekly (more or less) email to way over a thousand BBQ enthusiasts
around the world.
You may or may not be a member of my list. If you are, thank you for your membership
and continued support. If not, you should join the list for the latest news, information
and special offers.
Join Dave’s legendary list of BBQ, Grilling and Smoking meats!
