It's Spring BBQ Season! What's Cooking?

About Us

Hello BBQ friends and welcome to I am Brent. I am committed to providing reliable and up-to-date information covering all topics related to BBQ, grilling, and more including:

  • Recipes
  • Grilling and Smoking Guides
  • Equipment and Gear Reviews
  • Tips and Tricks

I want to give a quick shout-out to Mike and Janna who started this BBQ site several years ago. They did a wonderful job and I am happy to continue where they left off.

Why is it named Angry BBQ?

  • If you knew Mike, the Founder, you would see why the word Angry is in our name. He is known for his temper, which is usually quite comical and not always bad.
  • I assume that with the temper and a couple of over-smoked or undercooked cooks, Mike came up with the name. I absolutely love the name, because it’s catchy and everyone has a BBQ story gone wrong.

I am Brent, the new owner. I started working on the site in early 2024 with my wife Veronika. I am a lifelong entrepreneur and inventor. I invented an outdoor game and started a little game company in the early 2000’s which I developed for 20+ years before selling the brand in early 2023. Veronika is a school teacher and a vegetarian, so look for a mix of veggie recipes shortly.
