Steve Iannarone – BBQ Pitmaster

Steve Iannarone – BBQ Pitmaster/ BBQ Competitor

We would like to introduce you to someone who recently joined the barbecue scene and
will be sharing his experiences with you. Steve Iannarone, a senior Manager for Global
Shared Services, became involved with barbecue competitions about a year ago. After
taking some grilling classes and meeting other grilling enthusiasts, he started entering
competitions. He met Pitmaster Chris Marks, who taught Steve how to make the Texas
Style Beef Short Ribs at the 2016 American Royal. They prepared about 250 pound of
these, which landed both of them as a lead story on the local news channels. Steve
became very passionate about grilling BBQ and last year in Naperville, IL, he was a
Last Fling Award Winner with his BBQ Competition Ribs
