About Meathead Goldwyn

Meathead Goldwyn was named for the character on All in the Family although it’s actually quite fitting for someone who is a syndicated grilling columnist, a judge on barbecue circuits, and the grilling guru behind AmazingRibs.com. A former professor, he takes a detailed yet easy-to-understand approach to explaining the mechanics of outdoor cooking.

Meathead’s Science of Grilling

Grilling guru Meathead Goldwyn explains how grilling works—you know, thermodynamics and pyrotechnics and other science-y stuff—in plain terms. You’re gonna like the homework.
