Pitmaster Brian Gray

Brian Gray


Brian grew up in Texas, USA, where his earliest memories are helping his parents in the family's barbecue restaurant. Brian has been cooking American-style barbecue professionally from an age when most people were barely boiling eggs.

After spending some time in the US Marines as a young man, Brian now lives in Perth and has continued developing his passion for cooking good barbecue food on all grill styles.

"Charcoal is what we used to use, but my friends back in the USA convinced me to buy a Wood Pellet Barbecue, and I cook on that and a gas barbecue all the time now. I still love my charcoal, though"

At Hot Things BBQ School, we are lucky that Brian has chosen to join us to share his skills and passion.
