Cook Barbecue Job Description Sample

Communications Director - HPBA Organization More than 50 percent of U.S. households have at least one fireplace or freestanding stove (hearth products) and more than 80 percent own an outdoor barbecue, grill, or smoker. Year-round grilling is quite popular and very much a part of how the U.S. celebrates holidays like Memorial Day, Labor Day, and even Thanksgiving. The Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association (HPBA) is a North American $5.5 million association comprised of these 2 prevalent industries with a national office in Arlington, VA and 13 affiliates across North America.
