Chris Grove is the resident pitmaster of the grilling and BBQ blog Nibble Me This and is the author of the book The "Kamado Smoker and Grill Cookbook" (Ulysses Press). Chris discovered his love of BBQ as a young child tasting authentic slow smoked pork shoulder on his grandparents' farm in North Carolina and has followed that passion ever since. That journey has led to competing in and judging BBQ competitions from small local events to world championship events like Memphis in May. His recipes and photographs have also been featured by many national media outlets. But his favorite BBQ experiences are those at home on his back deck, creating new grilling and BBQ recipes for his friends and family.
The barbecue crowd is a true family and I am lucky enough to have stumbled into this bunch of great people who have helped me along the way. I just hope that I can pay back the BBQ karma by helping others on their own BBQ journey.
