Simon adding charcoal to the bullet smoker in the backyard

Meet Simon

Hi, I’m Simon, co-creator of BBQ Grill Recipes.

After more than 20 years in the meat industry, it was only natural to take that interest from the technical side of food safety into mastering the art of smoking and grilling.

As a husband and dad of 2 girls, living in sunny Queensland in Australia, we get to enjoy nice weather all year round. Perfect for outdoor cooking!

Meet Holly

While Simon may be the master of the smoker, Holly is often on side dish duties!

Wife of Simon, a former psychologist turned full-time blogger shares her passion for all things food, family and travel while helping out behind the scenes at BBQ Grill Recipes.

Holly is also the chief taste tester of the family. A job she takes very seriously!
