Chris Sussman, better known as the BBQ Buddha, is an award-winning pit master and sponsored by Snake River Farms and Dizzy Pig BBQ.
Chris is an unassuming guy until you get him near a grill and then his knowledge and sense of humor come pouring out. He teaches BBQ and grilling classes and shares easy BBQ recipes through his website TheBBQBuddha.com. His grilling style promotes the use of all five senses for great results on any grill or smoker. Look for his first book, The Four Fundamentals of Smoking, when it rolls out in April 2021.
Chris has also been featured in online publications such as HuffPost, Thrillist and Maxim. He lives in Louisville, Kentucky.
“I started my BBQ journey using another smoker (Weber Smokey Mountain). Once I got the bug and perfected my BBQ recipes I knew I needed a grill that could do it all. After using my engineering background to make a pros and cons list of all the grills on the market I landed on the Big Green Egg as it ticked every box and then some. My wife got me my first Big Green Egg for Father’s Day and I haven’t looked back since!”
