Matt Pittman of Meat Church Preaching the BBQ Gospel at Traeger HQ

Matt Pittman, "the best hair in barbecue", is one killer Pitmaster. In addition to his countless competition trophies, he’s gained a legion of hungry followers on social media. Matt has also created an empire: Meat Church BBQ. Meat Church is widely known for their popular line of standout bbq rubs. There’s more to his business than rubs, though — they offer authentic Central Texas barbecue catering and consistently sold-out shop classes, where the masses craving BBQ knowledge can glean from Matt’s BBQ philosophy.
