If it was easy, everyone would do it


Since our launch in 2008, Burnt Finger BBQ has been on a barbecue journey that’s been described as “a constant stream of once-in-a-lifetime experiences”. Trust us, it’s no coincidence that we continue to find ourselves face-to-face with amazing opportunity. We work hard and play harder, all within the barbecue community. Of course it doesn’t hurt that we also have a knack for network cultivation, strategic and creative planning, and straight-up delivering results!
