The world of “how-to” barbecue videos initially attracted John when he started searching the internet for tips on using his grilling equipment. That was a decade ago when the landscape of barbecue “how-to” instruction was fairly sparse.

Since then, John has steadily created a library of product and cooking demonstrations. His early work caught quick attention. Many other people were on internet searches for “how-to” information. Business content relationships with Kamado Joe and Atlanta Grill Company evolved. John has become a master of a low and slow hobby that started for him with a Weber Smokey Mountain and has included culinary classes and a one-day workshop with celebrity pitmaster Harry Soo.

Find out the best practices for low and slow meat smoking from the master of the Man Cave Meals himself in this podcast.

Don’t miss his memorable moments from his barbecue adventures, including good and bad smoked Thanksgivings and other things that didn’t exactly suit his taste.

For more advice from John and his Man Cave Meals, join him for Friday Night LIVE from the Man Cave.
