full grill with various food cooking

Hi I am Vince. Full time dad, husband, and business manager.  Part time grill master and backyard fun captain.  

I have been enjoying cooking delicious cuts of meat on the grill since my college days.  I remember cooking a ribeye on an indoor grill in my dorm, while stinking up the building and much to the chagrin of my neighbors it was delicious and I was hooked on the taste, flavor and accomplishment.  Since then I have been exploring grilling and smoking fine cuts of meat.

Now with my family I enjoy playing all weekend in the backyard.  We grill, play games and swim in the pool.  

Every Saturday we always grill out and spend time in the backyard together.  This gives me a chance to try a new cut of steak, try some new flavorful wood chips in the smoker or test out some new grilling gear.  The kids usually prefer burgers and hot dogs.  I can’t blame them!

Beyond Yard is a site about enjoying your backyard with friends and family.  Since we are just getting started we are focusing on the art of the backyard BBQ.  Beyond Yard is for beginner to intermediate grilling and smoking.  We like to provide instruction and context to help folks new to grilling and smoking feel confident in their equipment while prepping food for the family and friends.

Beyond Yard is for the aspiring household grill master.  We want readers to be confident in their equipment and confident in their skills for the backyard BBQ.

Our Mission is to make the backyard a fun oasis for your friends and family to create lasting memories.
