Growing up in North Carolina, Elizabeth Karmel was raised on BBQ. Elizabeth Karmel realized early that her true calling was to spread the good word of grilling and barbecue, and her career led her to the makers of Weber Grills, handling marketing public relations efforts and culinary initiatives.
In 2001 Elizabeth created Girls at the Grill, and she is now regarded as America's female grilling expert and serves as the grilling and barbecue information resource for the country's media and food writers, chefs and cookbook authors.
She realized that most women she met - even women who were very good cooks - never stepped in front of the grill. So she decided it was time for the girls to take back the backyard and she was going to lead the charge, and "If you can eat it, you can grill it!™" would be the battle cry.
Elizabeth's passion for outdoor cooking led to Girls at the Grill and the Grill Friends products, with simple easy-to-understand instructions, lifestyle information and recipes for everything from classic cookouts to gourmet grill meals.
