53 Best BBQ Blogs to Read for Indoor Outdoor Grilling Addicts in 2020
I don’t think you’ll find a single person that doesn’t love BBQ. However, there are many who aren’t good at barbecuing food.
This article is for them. Here, we’ll tell you about 53 best barbecue blogs that will help you get better at making BBQ.
So, without further ado, let’s get right into it.
Founder: Meathead Goldwyn
Operating for nearly 2 decades now, Amazing Ribs was founded by a lover of all things grilled, and a self-proclaimed “hedonism evangelist”: Meathead Goldwyn. Sure, we know that’s not his real name, but the fact that he's a meat-head is all you really need to know.
Not that there isn't more to know about him. The book authored by Goldwyn entitled “Meathead: The Science of Great Barbecue and Grilling,” has not only earned the title of a New York Times bestseller but was named one of the best 100 cookbooks of all time by Southern Living Magazine.
And it’s all because of this wonderful website. With a special emphasis on barbecuing and smoking, it’s a treasure trove for all lovers of outdoor cooking.
With countless mouth-watering recipes, cooking techniques, information about competitions and ratings, and reviews of products you'll love, you won't really need to go anywhere else for all your BBQ-related questions.
Founder: Steven Raichlen
This blog, with its alliterative title that rolls so nicely off the tongue, was founded by Steven Raichlen, who has written a staggering 32 critically-acclaimed books about the love of barbecuing and grilling. From BBQ gift ideas for your loved ones to recipes you won't be able to wait to try out, this blog is chock-full of tasty content.
But just because he loves meat, doesn't mean Raichlen neglects the other parts of the food pyramid: we greatly appreciate the fact that he also covers other culinary topics, such as desserts and seafood.
Beyond that, you will also find a host of highly informative articles about cooking and grilling techniques and even more niche topics such as how to take care of your grilling equipment.
And when you read one of his articles, it's easy to understand why Raichlen is an award-winning writer; just the experience of reading his writing is by itself a pleasure.
I Love Grilling Meat
The name of this blog is a good representation of how simple and straightforward it is. Featuring an impressive selection of simply-written articles about everything from homemade dry rubs to grilling techniques and recipes for burgers, this is an honest-to-God barbecuing blog with no frills.
The blog is maintained and authored by a splendid team of 4 BBQ experts who are bound to impress you with their accolades. Their names are Susie Bulloch, Greg Mrvich (of Ballistic BBQ), Lori Frazee (Barn Goddess BBQ), and Jef Spencer (Smoking Meat with Jef).
Outside of these 4 writers, the names of the other authors are kept secret. Because as we mentioned before, the idea of this website is quite simple. If you love grilling meat, and you love those who love grilling meat, then you don't really need to go anywhere else for all your outdoor cooking questions!
Reddit – BBQ: Low and Slow
Who doesn’t love Reddit? There’s literally nothing on this website that one can’t find about any topic or interest of his/her imagination. Obviously, you'll find about BBQ as well.
But what’s best about Reddit is the fact that all of the content is crowd-sourced, as is the ranking of said content. It doesn’t matter if a BBQ expert has authored the post or not; if it’s a good BBQ post, then it’ll get up-votes; if it gets up-votes, it’s a post worth reading.
That said, it’s not exactly a blog, so it’s not organized as such. Nevertheless, there are helpful tags that you can use to navigate the website. Up-vote or down-vote a post according to your fancy, or post your own pics, recipes, and techniques to share with the ever-growing virtual world of BBQ lovers on Reddit.
Google News – Barbecue
If you've ever used Google News to track the topics that are of importance to you, then you already know that it's a great tool. And if you choose to follow the BBQ tag, then there's a world of relevant content waiting to be read by you.
As an intelligent news-tracking tool, the purpose of Google News is to stay on top of all of the most important and useful information pertaining to a certain topic - in this case, BBQ.
If you scroll through the page, you will find all kinds of informative and entertaining BBQ-related topics. Be it recipes, listicles, or openings of new BBQ restaurants; the Google News algorithm can be depended upon to rank everything smartly.
Once again, it’s important to keep in mind that this is not a blog; as such, it’s not structured like one. However, if you’re interested in keeping tabs on literally any and everything related to the world of BBQ, we can’t imagine a better platform to do so.
Texas Monthly BBQ
Texas is one of the most prominent states of the U.S.A. for a number of reasons: be it their live music or for the fact that everything is apparently bigger there, though, what stands out is their world-famous BBQ.
So, of course, the self-proclaimed "National Magazine of Texas," TexasMonthly, has a dedicated BBQ section. Elsewhere on their website, you will find competitive reportage on worldly topics like politics and education, but in this corner of their publication, you'll find everything to do with Texan BBQ.
With their first article about BBQ dating back nearly 50 years, TexasMonthly has been at this for a good while. The blog steadfastly covers the latest developments in the world of Texas BBQ, be it BBQ joints, reviews, or recipes.
Furthermore, we probably don’t need to tell you that the quality of the content is top-class: as a critically acclaimed magazine, each of the articles on it is extremely engaging and will spur you on to try that new recipe as soon as you’re done reading.
Founder: Joshua Bousel
This colorful, cute little website is, nevertheless, anything but little in terms of its content. Founded in 2003 by Joshua Bousel, it was originated in a small New York apartment. Today, it's one of the most accessible websites for BBQ lovers.
First of all, Meatwave is originally a summer BBQ series that is held once a month from Memorial Day, extending into the fall season. The blog, however, is much, much more: not only can you find delicious recipes and techniques, but niche topics such as the best kinds of BBQ sauce are also covered.
Interestingly, Bousel is neither a certified chef nor a food-related content writer; he is a web designer. We think that makes it even more impressive that he is running this website so dedicatedly; that, to us, shows his true passion for grilling, barbecuing, and smoking.
Once you start reading the articles on this website, you're going to soon start thinking about participating in the Meatwave. If you’re based in North Carolina, we would definitely suggest it.
Nibble Me This
Founder: Chris Grove
Based in Nashville, Tennessee, Nibble Me This is a delightful BBQ blog with a number of beautiful surprises that will keep you hooked. The founder, Chris Grove, has been a lover of BBQ since he was just 7 years old.
Now, he has cultivated that love of BBQ into so much functional expertise that he wants nothing more than to share with other BBQ enthusiasts like you.
So, why should you trust Grove, even though he has no formal culinary training? Not only is he immensely well-read in the topic of BBQ cooking techniques, recipes, and equipment, he has also produced a highly-rated cookbook entitled “The Kamado Smoker & Grill Cookbook.”
Yep, he's an expert in using the Kamado Grill – a Japanese style smoker that performs beautifully in delivering impeccably cooked beef, chicken, pork, or even vegetables. Especially with its simple, easily navigable Blogger interface and neatly laid out tags, it's definitely one of our favorite BBQ blogs.
Date Night Doins – BBQ for Twos
Founders: Ken Fisher, Patti Fisher
BBQ aside, the name of this blog intrigues one right away upon reading it. What is a date night, and what is being done at it? Just ask Ken and Patti, the loving couple who are dedicated not just to running this blog but also to their date nights with each other.
From the way they talk about their date nights, you would think California-based Ken and Patti are a newly-married young couple, madly in love. Their real age, though, doesn't stop them from enjoying their date nights.
Ken and Patti want to share with you what they're cooking when they set up their patio for their outdoor dinner dates. This is manifested in more than a thousand amazing recipes that you will find spread out over their website.
And we're sure that once you start reading, you won't be able to get enough. When that happens, you can't find all eleven—yes, eleven!—of Ken and Patti's cookbooks on Amazon. Lovely!
Girls Can Grill
Founder: Christie Vanover
Christie and her team of “grill gals” are here to show you that not only can girls grill but in many cases, they can do it a lot better than the grill-guys in your life. Christie’s way of cooking is exemplified perfectly in her subtle putdown of sauces: good BBQ, she says, doesn’t need it!
Christie BBQs competitively, regularly judges BBQ competitions and holds a masters of beef advocacy. And get this: she owns more than 20 different cookers for her meat!
Featured on instantly recognizable names such as The Wall Street Journal, NowFood, and Buzzfeed, Christie's recipes and techniques will have you wondering where they were all your life.
Remember Steven Raichlen from earlier, of Barbecue Bible fame? Well, his books, along with Bobby Flay's TV shows, are what spurred Christie on to start BBQing. Since then, Christie has been all over the world in her quest for the perfect grill, from Asia to Europe. So relax—you’re in good hands!
Founders: Dave Shidler, Mark Graham
This blog is a supplement of the official Grilla Grills website, where you can find information about – you guessed it – Grilla Grills! The idea for this grill was birthed during a fishing trip that the founders, Dave Shidler and Mark Graham, were taking together.
The main purpose of these special grills is basically to decrease expenses to the consumer. Accordingly, it uses wood pellets for the fueling system, which gives the meat a unique taste.
Now, this blog is geared towards users of the Grilla grills line, mainly the pellet smoker grills, Silverbac and Kong. So, you're more likely to get something out of it if you own such a grill.
Nevertheless, the blog still carries a wealth of information on cooking techniques, recipes, gift ideas, and maintenance tips that will benefit any outdoor cooking enthusiast. Plus, the writing is quite engaging, as well.
Founders: Dan Morisson, Alex Coleman
Grills Forever, run by Dan Morisson of Texas and Alex Coleman of North Carolina, is a website dedicated to delivering reviews, user guides, and buying guides of the top-rated products from the best grill manufacturers out there.
And yes, they cover every kind of smoker you can imagine; be it electric or gas grills, Kamado grills or turkey fryers, they'll not only tell you all about it but also share amazing recipes you can try out on them.
Not just reviews and buying guides, but we're also a big fan of the plethora of informative articles on this website. Need a new apron? Can't decide whether you should opt for gas or charcoal? Looking for a simple recipe for the ribs that are waiting to be cooked in your freezer? Worry not, Grills Forever has got you covered.
King of the Coals
Founders: Tim and Joe
Awarded a spot on the list of the Top 100 Barbecue Blogs, King of the Coals is jointly run by Tim and his son, Joe. Unlike the other blogs we have seen on this website so far, the owners of this website are based in the United Kingdom, so they have a bit of a unique approach to the craft.
Primarily, Joe and Tim are concerned with informing their readers of the best grilling equipment available out there. Every kind of cooker from brands both recognized and obscure are reviewed by the duo, along with detailed buying guides and user guides.
What we love most about this website is that they have content for every kind of audience that might visit. No matter if you're just beginning to dabble in BBQ or are a seasoned grill master looking for some new recipes, you'll find them here. So yes, it's not just products they review!
Lang BBQ Smokers Recipe Blog
Not everyone is looking for a website chock full of product reviews or assorted listicles relating to outdoor cooking. Some of us just want a straightforward website that will quietly deliver a number of great recipes without any pomp and grandeur.
Lang BBQ Smokers is the right website to visit for those of us. From grilled jalapeno poppers to twice-smoked ham, you'll find recipes for everything on here. And not just that: if you have a recipe that you think the world needs to know about, they accept submissions, as well!
The blog is run and curated by a team of 5 experienced and dedicated chefs: Paul Kirk, Christianne Potts, Mitch Moody, Douglas J. Morgan Jr, and Cathy Derechailo. All of these people are closely involved in the world of BBQ, be it through restaurant ownerships or sauce and dry-rub product lines.
This beautifully designed website with its simple and easy-to-navigate interface, despite its plain looks, is filled with high-quality content about every aspect of outdoor cooking.
Once you read just one of their articles, it'll be easy to understand why they've been featured on websites such as Buzzfeed, mindbodygreen, and The Kitchn.
The recipes outlined on this website are all simple and extremely easy to make by yourself, from bacon jerky to smoked deer meat, and beef steaks. So, even if you're a beginner, you'll feel right at home.
But that's not all that's on offer: you'll also find intuitive cooking tips, tricks, and techniques that are bound to make your BBQing experience that much richer. And should you be on the market for a new grill or smoker, these guys will be able to point you in the right direction.
No, the title of this blog doesn't refer to the city in Tennessee, but the brand that is making highly innovative and user-friendly wood fire grills. This is their blog dedicated to publishing delicious recipes and relevant reviews about their products.
But what we like about this blog is that despite being geared primarily towards users of Memphis grilling products, non-users can also find droves of a relevant content on it. Grilling guides, do-and-don't lists, safety guidelines, and of course, recipes—you name it, they have it.
So, who runs this blog, and are they worth giving your attention to? Certainly! Given that the writers are selected by the administrators of the company, we trust them.
Now, while the authors remain anonymous to preserve the theme of homogeneity on the website, you will find that each of the articles is engaging and highly informative.
The Online Grill
Ben, who runs this website, used to be a "semi-pro" cyclist who is now interested in only one thing: eating a lot! He understands the simple pleasures—getting your grill going and whipping up a treat for yourself and your loved ones.
Accordingly, you will find a number of entertaining, informative, and helpful articles on this website surrounding every kind of topic related to BBQing that you can imagine. From the tone of the articles, you can tell Ben just wants to share his love for grilling with you.
That includes not just recipes, but also ideas to set up your backyard safely and aesthetically, along with a number of highly useful reviews about the best grilling products and equipment out there. Plus, you’ll also find manuals and guides on how to use certain products.
Undoubtedly one of the best things about this blog is its inclusivity: whether you're a beginner in the world of outdoor cooking, or are a seasoned chef, this website has something for you.
BBQ Super Stars
Weirdly, what we like most about this blog is its color scheme. With its contrasting fonts and the Baby Boomer-era artwork on its logo, this blog has an early Internet feel that translates to a website that is straightforward in its purpose: delivering the best recipes and informative articles about BBQing and outdoor cooking.
That said, the articles to be found on this website are vastly varying in their subject matter, even as they stick to the central theme of BBQing and grilling. For example, you’ll find articles about how to make cannabis a part of your next cooking expedition, but also about how to reach Dunkin Donuts’ customer care line.
We know, pretty weird. And it’s true that this blog is filled to the brim with annoying ads and stuff. That being said, if you’re willing to scroll through, you’re bound to be entertained and informed in a way you may not have imagined would be possible with a BBQing website.
The BBQ Central Show | Get In The Smoke!
Founder: Greg Rempe
This next blog is a little different. While it has almost everything you will have come to expect from a BBQing blog by now, it's primarily a website dedicated to The BBQ Central Show, which in turn is an internet radio show dedicated solely to outdoor cooking.
Sounds delightful, does it not? And what about the author? That would be Greg Rempe, someone who has been cooking and grilling for as long as he can remember. He came up with the BBQ Central online forum way back in 2004, and following its success, he decided to start a dedicated podcast.
On this blog, you will find archives for the radio show – just a few listens of which will make you click the subscribe button faster than you can say "BBQ."
Behind The Smoke Blog | Cali BBQ
Founders: Shawn Walchef, Derek Marso
Run by the Walchef family, Cali BBQ is a company dedicated to organizing and promoting cooking competitions, cooking-related podcasts, and catering events. Irrespective of your expertise level, when it comes to outdoor/live-fire cooking, you'll find a lot here to set you on the path of offering professional cooking services.
If that is, in fact, what you're interested in, you'll benefit greatly from the vast array of cooking media and marketing-related articles to be found on this website.
With step-by-step guides on how to create your own podcasts to bottling and selling your own unique BBQ sauce recipe, the information to be found on this website is actually useful.
That being said, if you’re just an amateur BBQer who is on the search for some simple recipes, product reviews about BBQing equipment, or cooking guidelines and techniques, you won’t find relevant information here. If you’re looking to commercialize your talents though, then give this blog a go.

Texas BBQ Posse
“Let the meat speak for itself” this highly popular phrase was coined by none other than the co-author of this BBQ blog Chris Wilkins. He was the person who initially decided to start this project. And if we go by the success this site has seen, we must say that his decision was right.

After moving to New York, she had a bit of difficulty finding the perfect smoker for her. Therefore, she started researching different types of smokers and came up with the idea of starting a BBQ blog. Now in this blog, she shares all her pro tips with the readers.
However, the main purpose of the blog is to help people find smokers that are a perfect fit for them. Therefore, she writes in-depth reviews of smokers and different brands so that you have no difficulties in choosing between them.
Better Grills Blog
Founder: Eddie Vandam
The story of this blog dates back to 2014 when Eddie Vandam decided that it’s high time he bought a new smoker. But when he went shopping, he saw the difficulties of finding the right pick. However, he is not the type of person who will just throw money at a problem. Rather he embarked on a mission to know all about grills.
Needless to say, his efforts bore fruit. And he managed to find the ideal grill for himself. Next, he decided to write down all his researches so that other people can get help from his research. And all these awesome posts that now you see on his blog come from his research of early days.
In addition to BBQ tips, you’ll find reviews of all kinds of outdoor and indoor grills on his site. Any accessory that is essential for grilling, you’ll find them on this blog. So, if you are about to do some shopping for your next BBQ, give this blog a visit.
Dirty Smoke BBQ Blog
Founder: Dru Chai
“Failure is the pillar of success”—This phrase is 100% true for the owner of this site. When chai tried to cook meat for the first time, it was a disaster. The meat was raw and certainly not edible. As he is a highly self-critical person, he understood his weakness and decided to learn more about the art of bbq.
Now, he is a renowned chef who has trained under bbq experts and has several certificates for his expertise in this form of cooking. In addition, he presided over many cooking competitions.
Now, what I like most about his blog is his attempt to make things easier for beginners. He writes in a way that even people that have never cooked before will not have any issues understanding his instructions.
Smoking Wood Tips
What’s the most important aspect of bbq? Smoke. Yes, if you fail to choose the right type of wood, then I’m afraid that your cooking endeavors won’t produce great results. So, before you begin your bbq journey, it’s of paramount importance that you get yourself acquainted with different types of woods.
And this blog is gonna help you with that. This blog contains articles that will educate you on different types of wood, their benefits, and drawbacks. After you’ve gone through the articles, you’ll be able to easily decide which wood is the best option for your recipe.
And what’s more, they also share easy tips for bbq that you can use to make your food more delicious.
Country Wood Smoke
Founder: Marcus Bawdon
British BBQ. Well, I admit that doesn’t sound very appealing. After all, British people are not known for great BBQs. Nevertheless, there’s one British about whom we can’t say that. It’s Marcus, the founder of this blog.
He has mastered the craft of bbq and comes up with new bbq recipes every week. And somehow, he manages to make all of them tasty. On top of it, all his recipes are easy to follow. So, if you are looking for new tasty recipes to make for the next bbq, then head to his blog for a quick look.

Also, if you like his piece, you can follow him on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. You’ll be glad to learn that he’s super active on all those platforms and shares advice regularly.
Founder: Ben Farley
Now, this one is a bbq school where they teach people how to cook food. They have a physical presence in Australia where people can enroll themselves to obtain expertise in bbq.
The contents of the blog are created by the teachers of the school Ben Farley and others. Ben founded this institution way back in 2014, and since then, the company has become continuously bigger. In fact, I will go as far as to say that this one has become a one-stop-solution for the lovers of bbq in Australia.
Nevertheless, even if you aren’t a student of their institution, you can still read recipes written by their chefs. In addition, they also provide catering services. So, now you know whom to call for your next event.
The variety of recipes that you can find here is highly impressive. At the same time, the sheer number of recipes available on the blog tells you how crazy Nathan is about barbecuing. And he takes great care to keep the instructions simple. Also, I can assure you that all his recipes are worth trying.
If you are a bbq fan, then you don’t need to go to any other website for recipes. Here, you can learn to bbq everything from meat to vegetables. So, I highly suggest that you subscribe to the blog right now.
I must add that the creator of this blog is someone you can relate to. He had no formal schooling in bbq, yet he managed to learn all the skills by himself from observing others and different experiments.

However, individuals who prefer to read should not get disappointed. That’s because you’ll find amazing articles of bbq tips, and details on different steps of smoking. In addition, you’ll see some great recipes shared by people.
Another thing that I liked about the blog is that you can share recipes too. So, if you have found a recipe that you think is worth sharing, then write an article about this and post it on their blog.

When it comes to introducing advanced technology to bbq, there’s one name that will pop before everyone else; Tac. It’s the first company that brought an infrared gas grill in the ’80s. And still, now, it’s the leading company that is paving the road for better smokers in the future.
They offer a wide range of bbq equipment that you’ll surely find helpful during cooking. And one thing they never compromise with is the quality of their products. So, it goes without saying that they are highly reliable.

But I must admit that I can’t but admire their penchant for creating new recipes week after week. So, if you want to try new and different dishes every week, this is a must-visit site for you.
The video tutorials they make are of high-quality as well. Once you start watching their videos, it’s hard to stop. You feel like continuing to watch. I wish we had more bbq blogs that make videos like them. Then it would have been very helpful for the newcomers.
They also offer various products to their dedicated fan base. And you can trust them as they are unlikely to anger their loyal customer base by offering low-quality products. The price range is quite reasonable, as well. So, next time you are about to shop, don’t forget to give this blog a visit.
