About Next Barbecue

Next Barbecue was created for people from all walks of life that love grilling. You enjoy outdoor barbecues. It’s also for those interested in making this their new hobby and need guidance.

Hello, I’m  D. D. Boyd. Welcome to the site. Growing up, I lived close to my extended family. Literally, I had aunts, uncles, grandparents, and cousins living within blocks of me. Some lived across the street. With family all around, I’ve attended many cookouts.

These days I live away from them but happen to have a grill master as my friend. We get together on the holidays and fire up the grill at a local park.

During the global pandemic, I’ve become more experimental with my cooking. Talking with my friends and browsing online, I’ve noticed that I’m not the only one.  Many people are becoming more creative with cooking and enjoying the great outdoors.

People are turning their backyards into an outdoor kitchen and leisure space. They’re using barbecue grills and building gazebos in the backyard.

If not the backyard, people are taking their grills with them when camping, or going on road trips in their RV. Those who live in apartments and condos are making the best of their balconies.

Our goal is to provide quality information to help those who want to barbecue but don’t know how to go about it. There are things that you need to know about operating a grill to make a great meal and for safety reasons. 

If you have experience with grilling already, you may find new ideas for your next barbecue.

I, myself, am not a grill master. However, all the content published on this site is written by individuals with knowledge and experience. That includes me.

I’m going to give my best to deliver the goal because I know you all are looking to make the best out of this outdoor hobby.

Let’s get you started on your next outdoor adventure!
