Ray Lampe, Dr. BBQ

  • Ray Lampe grew up in Chicago and after high school spent 25 years in the family trucking business. In 2000 the trucking business had run its course, and it was time for Ray to try something new. He had been participating in BBQ cookoffs as a hobby since 1982, so he decided to take a leap and turn his hobby into a career. In 2000 Ray moved to Florida and began his career as an outdoor cooking expert.

    Ray has written six cookbooks and is currently working on a seventh. The first six are:
    • “Slow Fire” published by Chronicle Books (Due out April 2012)
    • “The NFL Gameday Cookbook” published by Chronicle Books
    • “Ribs, Chops, Steaks, and Wings” published by Chronicle Books
    • “Dr. BBQ’s Big Time Barbecue Road Trip” Published by St. Martin’s Press
    • “Dr. BBQ’s Big-Time Barbecue Cookbook”
    • “Dr. BBQ’s Barbecue All Year Long”
