Here’s What You’ll Get When You Sign Up

When you join, you get instant access to hundreds of in-depth guides for meats and dishes cooked on a smoker or grill plus a large selection of non-barbecue recipes to complete your meals, such as appetizers, snacks, sides, and desserts.

Most of the material first appeared in StoryQue magazine, our monthly cookbook for barbecue enthusiasts. We've decided to stop publishing new issues of the magazine and compile this wealth of "forgotten" how-to materials into a searchable, user-friendly library.

  • Stories and recipes from writers around the US and in Ireland, Australia, and the Cayman Islands
  • Rub and sauce from scratch recipes

  • Delicious sides, appetizers, and desserts to complete your barbecue meals
  • Tasty snacks to enjoy while you're cooking

Is the library growing? 

So far the library contains roughly half of the material from the StoryQue archives. We will be adding more of these recipes and guides over time as well as brand new content we produce.

What Makes Us Different

We don't just teach. Many of our smoking and grilling recipes include an element of story, such as the background of the recipe, who the author was cooking for, and mistakes the author has made.

Why Not Just Search for Free Info?

Many of our outdoor cooking recipes are actually in-depth guides to help you cook for your guests with confidence and reduce the frustration of wasted time and meat.

Further, StoryQue+ is a wealth of inspiration for barbecue enthusiasts. You can't do a Google search unless you know what you're searching for, but StoryQue gives you loads of inspiration you may not have considered before, such as smoked venison braciole and meatball pie on the grill.
