The process of becoming a Master Griller may have some hiccups along the way, and that’s okay. This is a journey! Do you overcrowd your grill? Do you control the fire or let it control you? Whether you’ve experienced a towering inferno or impatiently used a grill before you’ve become acquainted, own your mistakes and move on.

In case you haven't had the opportunity to watch them on television or try recipes from their top-selling grilling cookbooks, Jamie Purviance and Steven Raichlen are passionate backyard chef royalty. Jamie Purviance graduated from Stanford University and the Culinary Institute of America (with high honors) before launching his career as a food writer. He is the author of several best-selling cookbooks, including Weber’s Real Grilling™ (which has sold almost one million copies to date), Weber’s Charcoal Grilling™, and his newest book Weber’s Way to Grill™. He has appeared on several national television shows as well as on PBS, CNN, the History Channel and the Food Network. As a regular contributor to national newspapers and magazines—and a popular teacher at cooking schools across the country—Purviance has helped millions of people to grill like professionals. Steven Raichlen is a journalist, TV host, and multi-award-winning author—but he may be best known as the man who reinvented barbecue. Raichlen wrote the best-selling Barbecue Bible cookbook series (more than 4 million copies in print). Raichlen has appeared on virtually every major national TV show. In 2000, in partnership with Weber Grills, he created Barbecue University, a unique cooking school held at the luxurious Broadmoor resort in Colorado Springs, which was hailed by the Food Network as the “#1 Barbecue Experience in the U.S.” Raichlen also battled—and defeated—Iron Chef Roksbura Michiba in a “Battle of the Barbecue Gods” on Japanese television.
