Julie Reinhardt is the author of She Smoke a Backyard Barbeque Book and hands-on partner of Smokin' Pete's BBQ in Seattle, WA. They share their passion for traditionally prepared barbeque in a place they lovingly call “a joint.” The fragrant aroma of smoke lingers in Julies clothes as she races between the busy restaurant, catering events and to school and park to be with her two children.
Julie loves to share recipes, tips and tricks she has learned, having been around food most of her life. She's cooked for rock stars, as well as the local community picnics and more than a few famous politicians make her restaurant a stop on their hand-shaking and baby-kissing tours. But, in her own words, “My favorite people to cook for are my family and friends – in the backyard under the stars.”
First and foremost I am Mom, wife and co-owner with my hubby of Smokin’ Pete’s BBQ. AND I am sleep-deprived writer. I wrote She-Smoke hoping to bring more gals to the grill. Now I get to share my love of BBQ with everyone.
