Welcome to your new favourite hobby.
Jon is the co-founder of Grillstock festivals and smokehouses, and the co-author of a cookery book of the same name. The first annual Grillstock festival was launched in 2010 and attracts over 17,000 visitors each year. Grillstock also operates five BBQ joints around the country serving smoked meat to more than 5000 people each week.
BBQ is his one passion and beer is the other. He has been brewing craft beer at home for a decade and even has a full draft beer set up in his garden shed with beer taps mounted on the door.
Jon has a no-nonsensewriting style that speaks from the heart and shoots from the hip (or, in this case, hop), making his text as entertaining as it is informative and accessible. Above all, he writes about what he believes in with a passion, commitment and authenticity that is infectious.
