The Pittmans hail from the great state of Texas where our love of BBQ runs deep. Matt grew up cookin’ and learning from his Grandma June in Alabama and has spent his life around food ever since. Matt got seriously involved in the BBQ space after taking a trip to Central Texas to taste the real stuff. One bite of salt & pepper brisket and he was hooked. From there on out, BBQ became his lifestyle. Matt would soon get smoke deep into the BBQ lifestyle and begin doing it professionally. Between competing in BBQ competitions, hosting classes, to being the king of Dallas Cowboy tailgates, Pittman became a seasoned pro.
While appearing on the hit TV show BBQ Pitmasters, Meat Church was born. His vision and creation of the brand would organically come to be after learning he could professionally package his unique spice blends while he was prepping for the show. Matt immediately decided to package his beef rub and call it “Meat Church Holy Cow.” Hence, the unplanned birth of Meat Church. Today, Matt spends his time smoking meat, creating, teaching and sharing his meat passion with others. When Matt isn’t spreading the good word of wood-fired flavor, he spends his time at home with his wife and 4 kids. For Matt, BBQ is about bringing people together, helping people grow in their BBQ knowledge and turning out amazing food.
