About Backdraft BBQ
As Founder - Chef/Pitmaster of Backdraft BBQ, I Ryan Grob will be painting the picture of how Backdraft BBQ has become what it is today.
I started my BBQ history by bartending at World Famous "17th Street Bar & Grill" in my hometown of Murphysboro Illinois back in 1991. While working there for the owner and BBQ legend Mike Mills, my BBQ interests were piqued. I started traveling to a few of their contests just to help with the grunt work. With another BBQ legend Pat Burke(Tower Rock BBQ) being Co-Captain of the Apple City BBQ Team, I would have been silly to not learn as much as I could as fast as I could. It was beneficial to see them at work, talking to judges, maintaining the Pits and getting called up to the stage to get their trophies, all very addicting! Well I got hooked. After several World Championships, Apple City BBQ called it quits to do even bigger things. It was time to start cooking on my own. I had formed my own BBQ Sauce(original) by the age of 18 and it was time to cook some meat to put it on.
