BBQ Tourist

"I'm an Omaha-based barbecue and grilling enthusiast, blogger, and co-founder of The Smoke Sheet BBQ Newsletter. As a native of Kansas City, I grew up with a love all things barbecue. Over the last several years, I have been traveling around America, exploring and seeking to experience and understand barbecue in all of its many forms. I love to incorporate the techniques and flavors I discover in my travels into my own backyard cooking."
