Grillax is here for all grillaficianados around the world, and was founded by Grill master Barin von Foregger. Below is his story.
My parents named me after their dog, Barron. That’s what I tell most people who ask about the origins of my name. It’s a good ice breaker.
I was born in Sardis, Mississippi in the northwest portion of the state, about 45 minutes south of Memphis. At an early age, I was introduced to good eats from all over the state, from home-cooked sweet potatoes and figs, to fried okra and creamed corn … all grown locally. Fish fries were a weekend affair, and most summer nights were filled with the sweet smell of yardbird or beef cooking on the grill.
Lover of food
As a teenager, I was fascinated by food, and wanted to be able to cook, but, I didn’t have the patience for the culinary arts. I cooked everything on high, burned everything I cooked (black beignets are not appetizing), and almost burned down the parent’s house on several occasions. It was so bad, my grandmother gave me a fire extinguisher for Christmas — a FIRE extinguisher!
Luckily, I learned that the secret to cooking well is patience and appreciation for the food that was being cooked. Today, I’m comfortable with almost every type of food that can be cooked, and the days of burning the entire meal are (hopefully) behind me.
I’m the father of two boys, and enjoy sharing my love for the grill with them. As you can see from the video above, we have a good time together!
