Smokin’ Hoggz BBQ (Bill Gillespie)
When it comes to competition BBQ, few pitmasters are as decorated as Bill Gillespie, the founder of Smokin’ Hoggz BBQ.
His team has won hundreds of awards over the years and has claimed the Grand Championship at both the Jack Daniel’s World Championship Invitational Barbecue and the American Royal World Series of Barbecue Invitational.
Combining his mastery of competition ‘cue and a willingness to try anything to make better BBQ, Massachusetts-based Gillespie has been working on perfecting “hot and fast” barbecue. In his newest book Hot and Fast BBQ on Your Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker: Master the Quickest Method to Smoking Mouthwatering Meats, Gillespie teaches readers how to embrace “hot and fast” and how to shave hours off cook times without losing flavor or texture.
