About BBQ Dropout


BBQ Dropout was founded in 2020 as a way to help people reach their barbecue goals, and has since evolved into a one-stop resource for all things related to outdoor cooking, smoking meats, and any type of cooking grill.

At BBQ Dropout, you’ll learn about how to smoke and grill the best meats, while also getting expert advice on how to operate many of the popular grills on the market. We are all about having fun and helping you fulfill your journey to become a world-class Pitmaster.

Whether you’re trying to figure out how to smoke brisket, pork, ribs, or how to operate any type of smoker or grill – you have certainly come to the right place!

Reaching a sizzling community of BBQ enthusiasts worldwide, BBQ Dropout is a multi-platform publication devoted to those who find joy in grilling as much as those who find joy in devouring the results. Since our launch, we’ve offered daily coverage of all the smoky news across the BBQ and casual dining space, in addition to mouth-watering recipes, practical tips, and reviews.

As one of the fastest-growing BBQ brands on the web, part of our mission is to make barbecuing more approachable for people of all skill levels. We won’t judge you if you’re unfamiliar with a reverse sear, but if you’re curious to learn about it, we’re happy to show you the ropes. While you’re here, we’ll also teach you how to make a finger-licking, unforgettable pulled pork with just a few ingredients and give you advice on how to store it for later.

Not in the mood to fire up the grill? BBQ Dropout has you covered there as well — from the best and worst items to order at your favorite BBQ joints (and which ones to avoid entirely), to the secrets of today’s most popular pitmasters. We also delve into everything happening in BBQ entertainment, offering detailed looks at your favorite grilling competition shows and exclusive interviews with up-and-coming pitmasters, BBQ legends, and smokehouse stars.

Our editorial team consists of passionate home grillers, former pitmasters, BBQ cookbook authors, and more, all sharing a common love for the world of barbecue. While we are definitely an opinionated bunch (don’t get us started on the ribs vs. brisket debate), we have no tolerance for BBQ snobbery in any form. We approach every topic we cover with the same level of respect, whether it’s a roundup of the best BBQ sauces or a ranking of smoker types.
