Sept 25, 2021 Another milestone as I enter the competition arena. This competition was my first SCA Competition at Pacific Flyway Supplies in Dixon CA, and I placed in the top 10 in both Steak and Chicken Wings. Awesome day using my PKGO grill and my Zenfiyah Coconut Charcoal (zenfiyah.com)

I met a lot of great people, all very helpful and friendly. If you are interested in competing you should give SCA a try and have some fun!



At @ukulelejaybbq you will get to see what's cooking. It's not just about bbq, but all foods.

From cast iron and cold smoking, to sous vide and charcoal, I try to make "strum pluckin' good" food throughout the week.

From Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to TikTok, content is constantly being uploading daily. It is a lot of work but when you love what you do it is not work.



"Strum Pluckin' Good" Live

Live Interviews


See me streaming live with many of Instagram BBQers and chefs. These interviews are converted to the "Strum Pluckin' Good Live" Podcast available on Spotify.com, Amazon Podcasts, Google Podcasts and many other Podcast outlets. 

The SMOKE ON BABY TOUR 2021 is finishing up on the road in Philadelphia PA. We have already hit many cities in California, Texas, Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Nevada from Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Marina Del Rey, Woodland and Dixon, to Portland, Seattle, Boise and San Antonio, TX . The tour hits the road again in 2022 with New Orleans, Ft. Worth TX and Fairhope Alabama with more trips in the works as we storm chase in the summer of 2022. Hope we get to MEAT up!



 I do not accept monetary payment from my sponsors.  My goal is to have strong relationships that mutually benefit our efforts to cook with the best ingredients for my style of cooking.  I want small businesses to succeed!  
My mission is to pay it forward and partner with businesses who see the value in my contribution to the Instagram BBQ and cooking community.  I greatly appreciate their support, keeping it fun and believing in my passion to cook, share, and grow impact across the food community.  Growing a business is really hard organic work and I love being part of building success!
