Malcom Reed is one of the most respected men in barbecue and his many videos make him a genuine YouTube Star.

A barbecue hobbyist, he started competing in 2002 and it didn’t take long for it to develop into a full-blown addiction. His love for BBQ inspired him to build his website, his YouTube channel, and a podcast where he shares new recipes and promotes the BBQ lifestyle. He loves to grill a perfect medium-rare steak, and he always enjoys firing up the smoker for a slab of ribs, but whole hog has to be his favorite thing to cook. “Smoking a hog is a long process, it takes a lot of know-how and it’s a lot of fun to cook. There is nothing quite like cooking a 150 pound hog and having it turn out perfect.”

HowToBBQRight is his full-time business. He runs it with his wife, Rachelle and every week they make a new YouTube video, create a new recipe, record a podcast, and he has a line of Killer Hogs rubs and sauces that he sells around the nation.

He has more than 40 different brands of grills and smokers in his yard in a Memphis suburb, but don’t ask him which is his favorite. He says that’s like picking a favorite child. We don’t know how, but he still finds time to compete on the BBQ circuit with his team, Killer Hogs. But his real business is to be a constant student of ‘Que.
