About Us

Were passionate about grilling!

For Mark it was easy, he started off watching his father grill burgers and different recipes for family and he quickly became enamored with the way everyone loved his dads food. Grilling brought everyone together.

With that Mark started learning and started not only grilling on the daily but inviting more and more friends to enjoy his new past time with him. He thought grilling was not only a way to bring people together but it was a social mecca, a club, a way for people to grow and a hobby that calmed people down after a long day of grinding at the office.

Grill Insider was born out of Marks dream to bring his love of grilling to everyone out there helping them learn and find new recipes.

Our Reviewers Promise

Writing and reviewing products must be done in such a way that emphasizes the true benefits and weaknesses of a product. We at Grill Insider strive to provide the best reviews we can by making sure we don't just give the positives and push products. With each product we are dedicated to also give its weaknesses to give you an accurate image of what it is your buying.

We also strive to review products that we have already used, this may be hard with the sheer level of products out there so we rely on some of our experts in the field to help us make the best recommendations on the web.
