My name is Amanda "Pitmaster Cutie" of the south; well in Atlanta Georgia anyway (lol). I'd developed a passion for smoking meats at 8 years old ! I watched my grandmother barbecue all the time. And, I began to help her with the grill and started grilling!
I was an early education teacher for over 16 years and loved the profession. But, one day my son was granted with the opportunity of a lifetime to go to visit China . And, I couldn't afford the trip. I was devastated that he may miss this once in a lifetime opportunity. So, I borrowed my mom grill and begin cooking on any street corner - that allowed me too-throughout Atlanta neighborhoods. Many weeks later I made enough money to send my son to China AND he had spending money ! I was so overwhelmed and honored that my passion for cooking sent him to China. Over the months I developed loyal customers who kept insisting that I continue to cook. I rented a kitchen and that's how Amanda's BarBeeQue was born!
That's the story behind Amanda's BarBeeQue. My passion for cooking blossomed from cooking on the streets of Atlanta Ga. to dinners for customers, vending at Festivals, to catering for many companies around Georgia.
