About the author: Ron Shewchuk is never far away from a grill or a smoker, whether he's leading barbecue workshops, appearing as a guest chef on TV, writing food articles, or barbecuing up a storm on the competitive circuit.
"For me, barbecue is not just a pastime, it's a lifestyle," says Ron. "Barbecue at its best is a spiritual experience, and I like to think of what I do as high ceremonial cooking ... You're not really serious about barbecue until you've slept next to your cooker and used a bag of charcoal as a pillow."
