Pit magazine

I am co-founder and editor of Pit, an independent magazine about cooking and smoking food over live fire. We celebrate the whole world of barbecue (not just American style) covering stories of interest, techniques, technical geeky stuff, ingredients and recipes. We do not review restaurants although we may profile them. If you have a pitch for Pit, want to advertise, or get in touch about anything barbecue-related, please see our website or contact
