Thanks for checking out this Masterbuilt Gravity Series podcast episode featuring a really great conversation I had recently with John McLemore and his son, John II, of Masterbuilt.
We all love stories about small business success. Someone starts up an effort we might refer to as a side hustle – working evenings and weekends to build up a business they can call their own. This is the pathway that Dawson McLemore embarked upon in the early 1970s. Today, Masterbuilt is one of the biggest manufacturers of cooking devices ranging from smokers to fryers, to their newly released Gravity Series Charcoal Grill and Smokers.
Now, with the investment of Dominus Capital, Masterbuilt is connected with the Smoke Hollow and Kamado Joe brands, and we cover all of these topics during our talk.
