Head Barbecue Nerd | Prime Barbecue

Christopher Prieto is a champion pitmaster, book author, barbecue judge, teacher, and barbecue eating expert. His journey into cooking and the world of barbecue began when he was a child. Fond memories of growing up in Texas and his desire to find the “soul” of barbecue sent him on a personal quest to perfect the art and science of slow-smoked meats.
Today, after years of cooking on the professional barbecue circuit, teaching barbecue classes nationwide, and cooking all over the country, Christopher believes he has finally achieved what he considers “barbecue excellence” with his own signature style.
