Aaron Brown: the name behind

Smokin’ and Grillin’ with AB

“A Culinary Brand “

Describing himself as a family-taught chef that “simplifies recipes and takes the mystery out of cooking”, Aaron Brown is fast becoming a grilling and BBQ legend. 

Born in Los Angeles, Aaron’s journey in the kitchen started at just seven years old, after his mother bought him a junior cookbook and started to teach him cooking recipes from home. He attributes the success that followed this entirely to his family, saying his grandma and mother were the first people to introduce him to the world of home cooking and feel-good cuisine.  

Aaron continued to whip up delicious dishes for friends and family behind closed doors for many years, until just five years ago – when he made the life-changing decision to start sharing humble cooking videos from his kitchen on YouTube.  

Fast-forward to today, and Aaron’s cooking channel Smokin and Grillin with AB has attracted over two million subscribers and boasts a huge following on social media, a podcast, and his very own successful seasoning brand, The Level Up Series Seasoning A & B

It’s this, in addition to some impressive collaborations with Laura in the Kitchen, HowToBBQRight and Pat Neely, that is rapidly cementing his position as one of the best contemporary chefs in the USA specializing in Southern Cuisine.  

Despite the mainstream success with Smokin and Grillin with AB, Aaron’s content and business maintain the same goal and objective as it had from the very beginning – to serve up positivity and inspire others to embrace cooking at home.  

“The thing I love most about doing what I do,” Aaron says, “is seeing someone’s reaction when they successfully prepare a delicious meal after following one of my tutorials. Food is a time machine, a talking point, and a lot of the dishes I make aim to touch the soul and hopefully help many others generate some of their own great family memories.” 

Now residing in Las Vegas, the family-taught chef hopes to become an inspiration to many others around the world who have no formal education in the industry, and says it’s never too late to start your cooking journey.  

So what’s next for Aaron Brown? With plans to evolve and take his cooking journey to the next level both online and in-person, followers are being asked to watch this space. 

“There’s so much more that I want to do, including opening cooking premises in the USA and pushing my channel even further worldwide, to help others experience joy from cooking, in the same way, that I do,” says Aaron. “Teaching others is so important to me, and continues to be my biggest priority.”
