About Greg

Greg Rempe has been cooking around some kind of open flame for most of his life. As a youngster, Greg would watch his Dad grill out for the family thus sparking his interest in live fire cooking.

Greg cooked on the grill through high school and continued his passion while attending college at Ohio University. After graduating, he soon found a new passion that would consume him completely…slow and low barbecue!

Greg founded the BBQ Central internet forum in 2004. It grew in to one of the biggest on-line forums covering this topic on the internet (Sold forum in 2013). A year later, in 2005, he came up with The BBQ Central podcast show. It rapidly became one of the most downloaded podcasts about barbecue and grilling.

In 2008, Greg decided to take his podcast and turn it in to a “live” show on internet radio. It is still one of the most popular shows on www.latalkradio.com.
In January 2010, Greg launched The BBQ Central Show website which airs both the live show on Tuesdays from 9-11pm Eastern as well as all of the current year replays in rotation 24/7.

Greg is a host who has access to many of the most prominent personalities in the barbecue and grilling industry. He also has an opinion on everything…and isn’t afraid to articulate it!
