I’m a Weber Kettle collector trying to cook good food. I love trying new things and perfecting the art of barbecue.

I’ve always loved cooking. Barbecue is just one style I like, although it seems to have taken over my like at the moment. I spent a few years competition on the Australian circuit in competition barbecue. Then starred in a barbecue show on Australian TV, it was great to experience how my small idea could become a big possibility.

I decided to start my own YouTube Channel in 2019. Mixing tips and tricks with good Aussie humour. Schueys BBQ has built up a great following and the support from everyone is incredible. The slogan of the channel is to “Master Your Grill”, too many people try their hand at BBQ and quit after one attempt, I want people to drag out their BBQ’s and give it another go.

I grew up next to the ocean, in a place called Mordialloc (moore – dee – al – eek). I use to fish nearly everyday. So cooking seafood is big at my place. I’d happily eat it everyday. In saying that though, I tend to cook a lot of the more traditional meals, roasts, wings, steaks, burgers, etc on a daily basis. I’m always thinking of new recipes and tell family and friends to pop over for another taste testing.

I am also a qualified photographer, I do love mixing both photography and cooking. My family tend to be like race horses waiting to bolt out of the gate after I cook. They know once the camera goes down, it’s time to dig in. At the end of the day, I enjoy cooking for my family and close friends, it’s such a social thing to do.

I’m trying to branch out and cook on a variety of other barbecues lately. Although I always keep coming back to my trusty Weber Kettles. I have around 50 or so at the moment and as I move some on, I always find more. Speaking of which, keep your eyes peeled and if you find one, send it my way please. Just don’t tell the wife, she feels I have enough.
