World’s #1

Plant Based

Brian Rodgers is widely considered the world’s foremost expert on Plant Based BBQ and creator of the first-ever complete line of BBQ sauces & rubs made specifically for this new, healthy food category.

He’s a respected Pitmaster in the BBQ community after repeatedly dominating competitions with his award-winning recipes year after year.

At only age 44, Brian was suddenly diagnosed with SIX life-threatening diseases and labelled morbidly obese.

While determined to beat death, he refused gastric bypass surgery and instead relied on his 30 years’ BBQ experience and his unique knowledge of plant-based food to literally heal himself. Miraculously, within just 6 short months, Brian was off all medications, reversed all six diseases and had lost an astonishing 120 pounds!

While family and friends were overjoyed, they weren’t surprised either. Brian’s also a successful entrepreneur, software architect, bioHacker, investor, author and philanthropist. After selling two companies he founded, Brian is sought after for private consulting and to speak with audiences of pitmasters, restaurateurs, schools & families and health enthusiasts around the globe.

He now focuses on his mission of spreading the word online and via radio & television appearances about the dangers of childhood obesity and the incredible health & lifestyle benefits of his unique style of Plant Based BBQ.

Brian is a faith-filled and devoted family man living in Colorado with his wife and son where they enjoy skiing, collecting rare sports memorabilia, cheering for the Kansas City Chiefs and backyard BBQs, of course!
