Cool People. Great Food. The PK Grill Blog.

Posted by

Here at PK Grills one of the best parts of our job is receiving fan mail. There is nothing better than hearing from our fans – their history with the brand, their love of the grill, how the PK Grill & Smoker changed their backyard cooking, etc. Sometimes this comes from folks new to BBQ, sometimes from someone who was given a PK from their father, or grandfather, and sometimes it comes from professional chefs who swear by the PK for their own grilling and BBQ smoking.

To celebrate YOU, our incredible network of dedicated users, we are collaborating with some of our most influential and flavorful fans to share some of their amazing recipes, and PK grilling tips and tricks.

To kick things off, we have some great preparations coming in the next month from notable pitmasters Jess Pryles, Michael Pendley, Sheila Reese and Mikey Kay. These guys know BBQ and their way around a PK Grill. So be sure to tune into their social channels and our blog for great recipes and tricks for using your PK Grill and Smoker!
