Brett Beale, the owner of Beale’s BBQ, joined us live with some summer BBQ tips and tricks.

A former apprentice under pit-master Bill Cannon and competitor in the World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest, Brett is a talented barbecue expert who showed us how to take your backyard BBQs to the next level this summer.

On hand were flavorful smoked meats at home; a display of Beale’s ribs, brisket, tri tip and more, all cooked with home-made rubs and inspired by Brett’s mom’s recipes.

Beale’s BBQ was one of 162 Southern California restaurants to receive a $3,000 grant from California Restaurant Foundation’s Resilience Fund, which will allow Brett to retain his top employees with well-earned bonuses.

Beale’s BBQ is located at 16400 Pacific Coast Hwy in Huntington Beach. To learn more about the restaurant, visit their website or follow them on Instagram.
