Ken Alexander is the founder of the award-winning restaurant Ken’s Hardwood BBQ in Tucson, AZ. Reared by a single mom where community, family, and food were at the center of daily life, Ken came to love old-fashioned Southern cooking and the magical way it brings people together. His early years as a US Marine, and a college football athlete and coach taught him the value of focus, hard work and discipline.
In his career as a business development executive, he traveled internationally and enjoyed experiencing new cultures though their food. Now a successful entrepreneur, Ken is inspired by projects which allow him to work with family to empower and uplift his community. Get Your Barbecue On is a show for backyard cooks looking for tips and insight into barbecuing, grilling and outdoor entertaining.
In this episode to Ken talks about his adventure (in story form) being an observer to a not so great barbecuing experience and talks about some How-Tos” and How-Not-To” about your equipment. We also hear from “the Docta Andraé Jones” to hear about his Labor party. Plus Ken welcomes Mark Lennox from Coming Home Healthcare Services to the show.
