We all love to cook outdoors! It’s our passion for outdoor cooking that brought us together.
Founded in 2007 the Great Lakes Barbecue Association was formed to promote Barbecue, grilling and all forms of outdoor cooking, not only here in our home state of Michigan, but throughout the entire Great Lakes region. It is our goal to sponsor cooking seminars and other events where our members, their families, business partners and the public can get together to exchange ideas and information, share tips and recipes, or that secret ingredient.
We are a non-profit organization (501c7) whose members want to utilize their love of barbecue and outdoor cooking to benefit selected charities and other worthwhile causes. We would love to have you join us for a meeting, a road trip, or to just talk about barbecue, grilling and our love for outdoor cooking. There are always fun and good times and we promise you won’t go home hungry!
