I met Elizabeth almost 10 years ago and she has become a treasured friend, bound by the love of barbecue and cowboy boots. She’s the culinary mastermind behind Hill Country Barbecue Market and Hill Country Chicken and the author of a trio of books about grilling and barbecue.

In addition to the famous PB&J Cupcake she invented for Hill Country, she also developed the often-imitated ergonomically designed silicone grill brush and mop, along with a variety of other clever and well-designed grilling accessories, all available at bbqproshop.com.

Here’s Elizabeth’s take on the One-7:

1. Travel destination: Paris

2. Cut of meat to cook: Bone-in pork butt

3. Favorite pie: my grandmother’s coconut meringue

4. Best gift received: the “love of food” from my parents and grandparents

5. I admire: Steve Jobs 

6. BBQ joint I’d like to visit: Skylight Inn

7. Words to live by: Don’t let the facts get in the way of a good story!¬†

Elizabeth’s website is a treasure trove of recipes and information. Buy her books here.

The One-7 features our friends and partners and gives a little insight into their worlds.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Elizabeth at the Institute of Culinary Education (ICE). She was giving classes on BBQ.. Awesome lady, tons of talent, very down to earth and she loves what she does.. Miss her immensely since she no longer does the classes but follow her online and always puts a smile on my face when I see her doing BBQ on Good Morning America… I’m hoping to see her this summer at NY’s BBQ festival..
