Glenn Connaughton, together with his wife Vida, co-founded Revolution Barbecue in 2009, a spice rub company that has taken the barbecue industry by storm.

Glenn, who was also raised in New York City, felt that if Bobby Flay could barbecue, then so could he.

Glenn spent years perfecting his recipes and techniques, experimenting with different spices and rubs until he found the perfect blend. Together with his wife Vida, who shares his passion for barbecue, founded Revolution Barbecue with the goal of sharing their love for great barbecue with the world. The company quickly gained a following among barbecue enthusiasts, thanks to their unique spice rubs made with all-natural ingredients and free of harmful additives.
