I’m Damien Bernard, the guy behind Meat Smoking HQ. Meat has always been a huge part of my life. As far back as I can remember, I was hanging meat in the smokehouse. I grew up in the back of my father’s butcher shop and spent many years working in the meat industry. Nowadays, I’ve rediscovered meat smoking, and every weekend you’ll find me in the backyard smoking something low-and-slow. When I’m not smoking meat, I’m here writing about my passion on Meat Smoking HQ.
