How I Earn Commission

Hi. Thinh Phan here. I’ve always believed in honesty and transparency on the Internet. My #1 goal at BBQ In Progress is to help educate my readers on how to grill and smoke better food. However, please understand that I’m also doing this as a for-profit business.

BBQ In Progress is indeed a business. In order to pay for all the operational costs and earn a living, this website uses affiliate links. When you click on one of those links and go on to make a purchase, I may earn a commission. Please keep in mind that doing so doesn’t cost you anything extra. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn fees by linking to and affiliated sites. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

Now, I only recommend products that I have personally used and/or fully researched. Better yet, products that I genuinely feel enhancing your cooking experience.

Companies sometimes do send me products free of charge. That, however, won’t change or affect my reviewing process. I’ll also make a point to disclose it at the top of the review page.

My #1 and ultimate goal is still to educate and inform, not to lure you, my readers, into buying products. You always come first, and that will never change.
