Our Story

SnS Grills (previously Adrenaline Barbecue Company) was founded in 2014 while the Slow ‘N Sear was in development. From the start, our focus has been on helping our customers make better backyard barbecue. We do that by creating high quality products that we’re proud to put our name on and being a resource to our customers for everything related to charcoal barbecue and grilling.

How did we get here? Born and raised in central Alabama, David Parrish - President of SnS Grills, completed a degree in Physics at Auburn University before joining the Air Force to “see the world”. His first assignment – Montgomery, Alabama! Over his 9-year Air Force career he did see more of the world while having the honor of serving his country. He was lucky enough to be stationed in two BBQ meccas – North Carolina (where pork is king!) and Texas where he gained a life-long appreciation for how brisket should be smoked! After separating from the service, he joined the corporate world as an IT auditor (He's always liked computers).

David eventually came across a website many of you may know, AmazingRibs.com. At over 1,000 pages, there was plenty to learn and absorb about the science of grilling and smoking, and he soaked it up like a sponge! He became active on their discussion boards and was asked to be a moderator. A few years and many more grills later, he had the lead role in launching “The Pit”, a members-only forum in the Pitmaster Club at Amazing Ribs.

The rest is history. Through his interaction with barbecue enthusiasts at Amazing Ribs, he realized there was an opportunity to create a ‘better mousetrap’ and design a device that could take a simple kettle grill and turn it into a quality smoker. Thus the Slow ‘N Sear was born, and our company took off! Fast forward a few years, and we’re growing by leaps and bounds. What David appreciates most about running SnS Grills and having happy customers such as you is that he finally found what he wants to be when he grows up! What’s not to like about inventing products, interacting with our customers over the phone or through social media, answering questions, congratulating fantastic cooks and celebrating good food with great people worldwide?! Keep in touch!
