)-- Barbecue America Magazine, the first international glossy print, multi-issue magazine dedicated to barbecue, debuted in over 33,000 retailers across North America just in time for the official kickoff of grilling season. The magazine is the official magazine of the 2014 Safeway National Capital Barbecue Battle and is proud to offer $500 to the winner of the Military Cook Off.
Within the pages of Barbecue America Magazine, readers will find tips on buying and preparing a grill, grill and smoker reviews, overviews of the hottest barbecue competitions, and features on some of the teams and celebrities making barbecue news. Whether it's new grill gadgets, products, trends, or lip-smacking recipes from world-famous pitmasters, Barbecue America Magazine has something for everyone from backyard grillers to experienced barbecue gurus.
Rick Browne, Ph.B., is the editor in chief of Barbecue America Magazine and is one of only 23 people in the world with an honorary Doctorate of Barbecue Philosophy from the Kansas City Barbeque Society. Browne is an internationally recognized barbecue chef and certified barbecue judge. Most notably, he is known as the creator, host, and executive producer of several TV shows, including American Public Television's Barbecue America, and the author of 16 cookbooks.
"With over 80% of U.S. households owning a barbecue, grill, or smoker, it's amazing to think that there hasn't been a regular consumer magazine dedicated to barbecue before now," says Browne. "Finally, there is a magazine available to consumers that gives them a 360º view of barbecue. From reporting on the most successful competitive teams to the pits of America's most popular barbecue joints, Barbecue America Magazine is dedicated to sharing the tips and secrets of great barbecue."

The magazine includes 30 plus recipes from some of the best barbecuers on earth.
