About Us

Hey there!


Thank you so much for visiting. I'm Dave, a.k.a. The Kettle Guy. As my wife Brittnee would probably tell you, I am obsessed with all things food, but especially grilling and smoking on my Weber kettles! (seriously, I may need counseling). Oh, and please don't remind her about me using her kitchen as a spice laboratory for two months while developing my rub recipes - it's still a bit of a sore subject.


In a time when life moves fast, family dinners are a luxury, and stress levels are on the rise, there's nothing better than slowing down to enjoy good food with friends and family. Throw in the smell of charred meats, chunks of smoldering wood, and a cold brew or two, and you've got yourself a little slice Nirvana.


I started The Kettle Guy to share my passion with the world, as a personal challenge to myself, and to hopefully help people in need. If I can make a few friends along the way, help novice grillers develop their skills, and make recipes people enjoy I would be truly honored and grateful.


If you have any questions or comments (or just want to chat!) please don't hesitate to reach out. I'll see you on the patio.
