About Us

Hi there! I’m Damien Bernard, the passionate meat lover and founder of Meat Smoking HQ. Meat has been an integral part of my life since my earliest memories, when I spent hours in my father’s butcher shop. My years of experience in the meat industry have given me valuable insights and skills in meat preparation and smoking.

Now, I dedicate my weekends to backyard meat smoking, perfecting the art of low-and-slow cooking. When I’m not tending to my smoker, I’m here on Meat Smoking HQ, sharing my passion, knowledge, and experiences with fellow meat enthusiasts like you.

If you have any questions, suggestions, or just want to chat about all things meat smoking, feel free to reach out to me at [email protected]. I’m always excited to connect with fellow meat lovers!
