About Grill Smoke Love

Hi, and welcome to Grill Smoke Love! 

My name is Joonas, and I have been cooking barbecue food for over 30 years now. I was born and raised in Finland and as soon as I learned to walk I started assisting my dad and uncles with grilling and smoking. This happened mostly at our summer house, a wooden cabin in the middle of a forest in Eastern Finland. I also lived in California for a while, and that’s when I got to know the American barbecue culture.

The future of barbecue is in my hands

I always loved helping my dad and uncles with grilling and smoking beef, chicken, and pork chops, as well as fish that we caught from the lake next to our cabin. As long as I can remember, we have been using Weber grills and were always very satisfied with their performance and durability. 

In my opinion, it’s smart to buy a well-made product, that will last for many years. A proper grill or smoker will give you better and more consistent results, and you don’t have to constantly worry about something breaking or malfunctioning. Most of all, you will have a great time while cooking!

Thinking about the environment, it’s also better to buy products that last long. Buying a new cheap grill every other year is not very sustainable.

On this website, you can find tips and knowledge that will help you with cooking great barbecue food and maintain your equipment. In addition, the reviews and buying guides will help you with choosing the right equipment to match your needs.

My goal is to cook tasty barbecue food, enjoy it with
family & friends, and help others do the same!

Let's Grill!

One of the best things about grilling is being outdoors and taking your time while cooking the food. A barbecue party is also a great way to catch up with your friends while turning steaks on the grill.

Welcome to Grill Smoke Love!

My favorite part of having a barbecue is when I can serve those perfectly grilled burgers or smoky racks of ribs to my friends and family.
