About Grillocracy's Clint Cantwell

With a passion for all things barbecue and grilling, grillmaster Clint Cantwell is the Editor of Grillocracy.com, Lead Writer of AmazingRibs.com, and winner of Travel Channel's "American Grilled." He also serves as recipe developer and brand ambassador for such high profile companies as Kingsford charcoal, Smithfield, and Certified Angus Beef, among various others. 

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) and is frequently featured in a variety of media outlets as an outdoor cooking authority.  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.
