Jared ‘Pete’ Macdonald

A native of Hamilton Jared ‘Pete’ Macdonald caught the BBQ bug whilst visiting a mate in South Carolina, that trip would change the course of his life forever. Upon returning Jared immediately quit his job and started his own quest to introduce kiwis to the art of low and slow. Over the course of three years he would build his own American style BBQ trailer, open a BBQ retail business, cook more than six thousand racks of pork spare ribs and design and commission his own line of pit smoker BBQs. In the future Jared looks forward to growing the NZ BBQ scene through competitions and scaling up his BBQ business.
