Hello!  I'm Michael and I live in the Carolina's with my wife Yvonne.  The Carolina's are renowned for pulled pork.  Which is a whole hog cooked over hardwood coals until the meat is tender enough to be easily pulled off the bones.  Often served with various concoctions of a vinegar sauce.  But, all styles of barbecue will be covered here.

The concept behind 'The Practical BBQ'r!' is, 'Do It Yourself'.  Building a homemade barbecue cooker, making barbecue sauces, rubs, and mops from scratch, to making charcoal at home.

The mission of my web site is to help you learn how to barbecue.  For the already experienced barbecue chef, to hone your skills or learn another style of barbecue cookery.
