About Grillocracy's Clint Cantwell

With a passion for all things barbecue and grilling, grillmaster Clint Cantwell is the Editor of Grillocracy.com and Kingsford.com, video content director of AmazingRibs.com, pitmaster of Smoke in da Eye competition barbecue and grilling team, and winner of Travel Channel's "American Grilled."  

Described as a "backyard griller on steroids" and the "mad scientist of grilling," Clint was named one of the "10 Faces of Memphis Barbecue"  by Memphis Magazine (May 2015), is a special contributor to TheDailyMeal.com, and has recurring grilling segments on both CNN's HLN and WREG-TV.  His journey from a 20 year career in public relations to a full time pursuit of live fire cooking was recently documented in an article found here.

From his childhood in Texas to several years spent in Kansas City, Wisconsin, New Orleans and New York, Clint's passion for barbecue and grilling runs deep as he travels the country in search of the people, places and tastes that define our shared grilling culture.

He currently resides just outside of Memphis, TN along with his wife, three children and Charcoal the dog, sharing his grilling ideas, experiences, recipes, tips, techniques and more via the site, social media, traditional media, cooking demos, and more.
