Hi, I’m Shara

My cooking journey began as a commis at The Bird BBQ restaurant. After a few years, I left to become a chef, a mother, and a solopreneur. Unfortunately, The Bird BBQ closed their restaurant and website, so I took the opportunity to buy the website and turn it into my own food blog.

I find cooking to be a very rewarding and creative endeavor. I love experimenting with flavors and techniques, and I’m always looking for new ingredients and recipes to try. I’m passionate about teaching others how to cook, so I’m often sharing tips, tricks, and recipes with friends and family. I’m also an avid foodie and love exploring different cultures and cuisines.

I’m always open to networking and sharing the knowledge I’ve gained in the barbecue world: smoked recipes, special ingredients, sauces, and more. So, don’t be shy – drop me a line and let’s chat!

How this all began

Shara is a (somewhat) talented chef, mother, and food blogger who is the proud owner of this popular website (well, soon), thebirdbbq.com. With a passion for cooking and a love of sharing her culinary creations with others, Shara began her blog as a way to share her favorite recipes and BBQ techniques with a wider audience.

As a mom, Shara understands the challenges of balancing a busy family life with a passion for the kitchen. That’s why she makes it a priority to create delicious and easy-to-follow recipes that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Whether it’s a tasty grilled chicken recipe or a hearty BBQ pork sandwich, Shara’s dishes are always sure to please.

When she’s not in the kitchen or managing her catering business, Shara can be found spending quality time with her family and experimenting with new recipes. She is always on the lookout for new and exciting flavors to incorporate into her dishes, and her love of cooking continues to inspire and drive her every day.
