The World's #1 Publication Dedicated To ALL Things Barbecue!

Testimonials From Our BBQ Buddies 

When you think of influential people and the impact they’ve had on their profession you have to think of Elvis Presley and his impact to Rock N’ Roll, Micheal Jordan and his impact on basketball and even Tiger Woods to the world of golf. When you think of products and their influential impact to their industry—there is no denying the impact Harley Davidson has had on The World of Motorcycles. Now when it comes to barbecue you can’t help but think Kingsford when it comes to charcoal or Weber Kettles when it comes to grills. In The World of Barbecue there are many Pitmaster Legends like Tuffy Stone, Melissa Cookson, Johnny Trigg, Mike Mills, Brooke and Brad Orison, Big Moe Cason, Dr. BBQ and of course Myron Mixon. BUT when it comes to Barbecue News there is no doubt that Kell Phelps and The National Barbecue News is our own Walter Cronkite to The World of Barbecue News!

The National BBQ News has been our “go-to” information source since The Paradise Ridge BBQ Team was formed. It’s informative to all barbecuers. Its a got a down to earth style… and if you knew Poppa Joe or know Kell… you can tell it comes from the heart. It’s the classic definition of “make the best you can every time”…and isn’t that really what we all strive for every time we “fire up”?
