WHO YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU DO FOR WEBER?

I run the test kitchen for R&D. Essentially I get paid to use Weber products all day and tell the folks in R&D what I think about them. It’s a dream job!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE WEBER PRODUCT?

Weber Summit S-670. There’s nothing this grill can’t do.

FAVORITE THING TO GRILL?

Grilled pizza with Italian turkey sausage, fresh tomatoes, mozzarella.

CHARCOAL OR GAS?

Gas during the week and charcoal on the weekends when I have a little more time.

WHAT'S YOUR BEST GRILLING ADVICE IN ONE SENTENCE?

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED WITH GRILLING?

Some of my favorite childhood memories are of my dad in the backyard on Friday nights grilling steaks on our Weber charcoal grill. As I grew up and learned to cook myself, I was a little intimidated by the grill but decided to teach myself the basics. I can remember receiving the Weber’s Real Grilling cookbook as a gift and reading it cover to cover. That book took the fear factor out of grilling and made me a much more competent and confident griller. Who knew just a few years later I’d be working at Weber and helping other people learn to love the grill!

For three days my Weber colleagues and I watched some of the world’s best competition barbecue teams smoke, grill and sear their hearts out.

One Chicken, Seven Meals

I make a rotisserie chicken on Sunday and use the meat for quick, easy meals throughout the week.

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day!

Being a mother is the hardest job I’ve ever loved and I can’t think of a better way to spend this special day than in my backyard, around the grill surrounded by the people I love and great food.

Brunch On Your Weber

French toast is one of my favorite foods but because it’s so rich and decadent.

I’m an equal opportunity griller when it comes to choosing between gas and charcoal grills. However, when grilling fish, I really like the way the charcoal flavor compliments the fish.

My Favorite Go-To Rub

My Favorite Go-To Rub

Boneless, skinless chicken breasts are pretty bland so they benefit greatly from a marinade or a rub. It’s a great way to add a lot of flavor without adding fat or calories.

Asian Flank Steak Salad

Asian Flank Steak Salad

One of my favorite cuts of meat to grill is a flank steak. As far as steak goes, it’s relatively inexpensive and it’s one of the leaner cuts of red meat. It’s also great for feeding a crowd and it doe
