If you have any questions that are not clear from reading this grilling blog please feel free to e-mail me or find me on Google +. I have no rules. I'll take any question you have. Of course you could ask me on Twitter, or one of the comment boxes at the bottom of most pages, but if you feel more comfortable with e-mail, go for it. My e-mail address is below.

If you want to learn a bit about who runs this blog keep on reading. I'm John and I live near Baltimore, MD. I have quite the interesting background. For most of my college and graduate school time I was a total science nerd. I was immersed in molecular genetics and earned a Ph.D. in the field. After years of painful laboratory work I decided that lab work was not for me. I landed a desk job applying what I had learned in the lab to the real world. This was great. I was out of the lab, finally. But that inner urge to tinker with things wasn't being satisfied. I then focused all my energy on charcoal grilling, tailgating and cooking in general. So if you think I get a little technical or add a small bit of science to the grilling, now you know why!

In addition to writing I also write for Purple Reign Show, B'more Chix (what used to be, South Florida Food and Wine, and Kingsford Charcoal's I also provided content for AOL's Kitchen Daily.

Feel free to contact me if you have any particular product you would like me to review or discuss.

Just recently I've been asked to write for the Baltimore Sun. Each week prior to a Baltiomre home game I've been writing a special tailgate recipe that has appeared in both print and online. It's pretty cool to see my work in the sports section!
