1. How did you guys started out and what motivates you to do grilling?
We started out as advertising executives that decided to start grilling together. We are motivated to experiment with different types of cuisine, fuel and grills. We love to make inventive and fun things for ourselves and our families!
2. Which grills do you normally use for your BBQs?
3. In your view, which are the best grills available – all weather conditions?
We love the Big Green Eggs. They will light up even if there is a hurricane going on outside. And, they will stay hot forever with very little work. They are true to their temperature and always turn out great food!
4. Your recommendation to people who want to start grilling both as a hobby and business in the lowest possible budget?
We recommend getting a simple Weber kettle grill and use some charcoal. It’s easy to light, easy to clean and once you learn how to use it – other grills are very easy to use. Also, the Weber Kettle grill is super cheap. Give it a shot!
