ABOUT THE HOST:
51 years of cooking experience.
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 through their food.
Now a successful entrepreneur, Ken is inspired by projects which allow him to work with the 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.
