Meathead Goldwyn: The Art and Science of Barbecue and Grilling
Welcome Back to Pizza Quest.
In this episode of Pizza Quest we take a tangential detour away from pizza (as we often do in our ever-expanding celebration of artisanship wherever we find it) with one of our longtime, favorite guests, Meathead Goldwyn. Meathead (yes, that’s his name, the origins of which he explains in this conversation), is the creator and host of the hugely popular website, AmazingRibs.com, where for many years he has provided an encyclopedia’s worth of free knowledge on everything related to cooking over wood, charcoal, gas, and even electric. His best selling book, Meathead: The Science of Great BBQ and Grilling, provides both techniques and recipes, but also clearly explains the science behind why and how you should do it. In this entertaining conversation, he demystifies some of the most common false myths about BBQ and grilling, and you will leave this episode with some brilliant, perhaps even life changing takeaways, and might even be compelled to join Meathead’s Pitmaster Club for additional perks. Hold on for a great ride as Peter talks with the legendary Meathead Goldwyn.

Pizza Quest is a site dedicated to the exploration of artisanship in all forms, wherever we find it, but especially through the literal and metaphorical image of pizza. As we share our own quest for the perfect pizza we invite all of you to join us and share your journeys too. We have discovered that you never know what engaging roads and side paths will reveal themselves on this quest, but we do know that there are many kindred spirits out there, passionate artisans, doing all sorts of amazing things. These are the stories we want to discover, and we invite you to jump on the proverbial bus and join us on this, our never ending pizza quest.
