It all started with my father Warren Griffin, Jr. who was many great things, chief among them a boxer, black belt and chef in the United States Navy. As a kid, all my pops used to do was cook, create recipes and play good music. He would tell my sisters, brothers and I, all about the stories of his many journeys. Even thought it was fun to hear him talk about those things, it was also very interesting to me. One of the things that stood out the most to me was when he would talk BBQ. The flavor of the smoke on the meat and just the good feeling of having family around caught me up and rang a bell in my head. As I got older, all I wanted to do was be like my dad on the smoker and grill because it reminded me of his morals and good family fun; and so, a pit master was born into a lifestyle of fun, family and celebration. Warren G!
