Welcome to BBQ Hawks, dedicated to the pursuit of grills, growlers, and grapes.  Our mission is to bring you to best in barbecue, grilling, microbrew, and wine culture.


Co-founder of the Pacific Northwest Eggfest, Sean has tried just about every type of smoker and grill from electric (cringe), to lump, log, pellet, propane, and natural gas.  When he’s not smoking or grilling, he’s probably judging a KCBS or PNWBA competition cook (or wishing he was!).

Sean’s favorite equipment these days includes the Big Green Egg, Weber Smokey Mountain, RCS Infrared sear station and Weber Performer depending upon the meat and weather.  Sean’s favorite rubs come from Dizzy Pig BBQ and is working through Adam Perry Lang’s, “Serious Barbecue“.   When not playing with fire, Sean is skiing, scuba diving, running, playing Xbox, or explaining to his two sons why Jar Jar Binks isn’t cool.



SueAnn_Blog_Profile_PicSueAnn isn’t a KCBS certified judge, or a brewmaster however she brings two unique aspects to the site. As a grillmaster in training, you’ll see the novice perspective that makes BBQ and grilling accessible to everyone. Second, her job gives her the unique opportunity to travel and discover great eats and drinks from Alaska to Florida. She’s also Sean’s wife, so you’ll often find her sous-chefing for Sean’s BBQ creations.

When not hunting the latest finds, she loves to ski, scuba dive, run, fly, and help Sean raise two boys into accomplished grillmasters in their own right.





Jason’s past career with the Navy EOD teams has provided him the opportunity to travel the word and develop a taste for exceptional BBQ and beverages that favor the hop; leaving no rock left unturned in the quest for great grilled cuisine and fine brews.  His first attempt at brewing ended in a minor explosion coating everything in sight… Over the next 15 years he studied the art and has formulated some masterpieces around the treasured hop.

Along with any great pint is the need for stellar bbq.  This is his next quest.  To taste, discover and ultimately create some great tasting recipes to enjoy with family and friends.

When not working on a new creation, Jason tries to spend his time outdoors with wife & 3 kids camping, skiing / snowboarding & mountain-biking the trails of the PNW.   His wife and kids, surprisingly, have no idea of Jar Jar Binks!
