Howdy! We are Marinate Me Baby! We would like to welcome you to our world of food, photography, humor, cooking and of course sharing our lives with you. We are amateur cooks for the most part and very busy husbands, fathers and members of our community. We are fueled by our love of BBQ and Grilling, friends and the amazing things that can happen at a neighborhood gathering. We document those happenings and stories from our lives and share them with you the world.
We believe in celebrations when ever possible. Celebration of people, great food, conversation and gardening with the occasional travel journal thrown in for good measure. We connect through food, sharing, tasting and communicating these people’s stories with you.
You will find daily seasonal recipes, highlights on food trends, and interviews with some of the folks in the food world that make it happen on an everyday basis.
Thanks for joining us – let get started!

Sterling Matheson has been the youngest in his family all his life (weird huh). He has always loved to grill but smoking meats slow, and low with the right blend of seasonings is where he is at his finest. He has competed in BBQ competitions and loves a good Steak. He has always had a passion for food. He has worked in restaurants in capacities ranging from bussing tables, cooking and serving. He has also owned a restaurant. If your it’s your passion, there is nothing better than eating it.

As an avid outdoors-man, Barry has expanded his cooking repertoire to include a variety of wild game taste treats.
