Take a look at this short interview to know more about DJ BBQ, a famous food youtuber specialised in live fire cooking that participated in the latest campaign.
Where does the name DJ BBQ come from?
It came from an idea I had when DJ’n a festival up in Scotland on the banks of Loch Ness. I had a tent full of young people dancing and taking their clothes off. I thought to myself…”What the hell am I gonna do when I’m 50? I know, I’ll cook BBQ whilst spinning tunes and I created the world of catertainment”
