There are many who believe that there is an overreliance on gadgets and technology in BBQ. One of the Pitmasters pushing for a return to traditional ways of preparing barbecue is David Ong, from Pitmaster University. As well known as he is for his long Facebook posts, David has been a part of the Australian Barbeque scene since Day 1, and was even awarded the first ever Australasian Barbecue Alliance Personality of the Year Award. Since then, he’s started a YouTube channel that’s garnered millions of views (if you haven't seen his Crispy Pork Belly Recipe you haven't lived), and now heads up Pitmaster University, a BBQ school based in Perth, Western Australia, teaching traditional Texas BBQ to those who want to learn how to make barbeque at home.
