Kevin Kolman holds the title of Weber Grill Master for good reason. His high skill level behind the grill, passion for all things barbecue, and enthusiasm for the Weber brand are just part of why he is the go-to for all things grilling. Owning a mere 46 grills (and growing!) himself, he has had plenty of experience with Weber’s ever expanding product offering over the years. His extensive hands-on experience and scrutiny of all Weber grills and accessories helps fuel him when he facilitates grilling demonstrations and instructs at the Weber Grill Academy or around the globe. If it’s anything to do with grilling, Kevin can help.
Kevin’s experience from co-instructing a Barbecue Science course at The Ohio State University, attending Camp Brisket at Texas A&M, and teaching around the world make him one of the most credible sources of BBQ. Also, being a certified Kansas City Barbecue Judge allows him to judge barbecue competitions and enjoy some of the best BBQ from all different parts of the world. He participated in the CBS special Tailgate Turnover, has filmed commercials for the Food Network, and has represented Weber in the media through various other outlets including print, radio, and television.
Kevin’s passion stems from anything and everything that has to do with grilling. This includes but is not limited to educating consumers on the art and science of grilling, partnering with food, wine, beer and spirit brands, holding grilling competitions, or just enjoying time around his Weber grills with his family and friends. As Kevin would say, “The most pure and honest gift you can give someone is to cook for them and for Kevin that always happens around his Weber grills”.

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED WITH GRILLING?
I got started with barbecue with my dad when I was age five grilling on a Weber in our backyard. Fast-forward to my adult years, I was trained, educated, and developed by Edna Scholosser who was Weber’s R and D head chef for 25-plus years, along with Jamie Purviance who is the ultimate and the standard in barbecue cookbook design.
