Matthew Eads is a cookbook author, personal chef, food blogger, and regular cooking guest on national morning shows. His book “Grill Seeker: Basic Training For Everyday Grilling” was #1 in Amazon’s grilling and BBQ category and details the basic training needed to make grilling an everyday pleasure for everyone. His modest upbringing taught him to make the most of what was available, and that the two main ingredients in every dish are passion and pride. Matthew’s lifelong grilling education was a trial by fire—learning from mistakes, testing new ideas, and perfecting techniques to make the grilling experience not only fun, but consistently exceptional.
Matthew served 13 years in the U.S. Marines, where he continued to hone his skills, grilling for fellow Marines all over the world using his imagination and whatever was on sale at the commissary. Simple ingredients, good friends, and the joy of grilling made every meal a celebration.
Through subsequent careers as a stay-at-home dad & college student, corporate executive, and small business owner, Matthew always viewed time with the grill as a personal getaway and a way to recharge. His passion for grilling and entrepreneurial spirit led to the founding of Grillseeker.com, a site filled with free recipes, unbiased product reviews, and tips for grillers at every skill level.
Matthew’s years of practical application, experimentation, and thirst for knowledge have led to him becoming a thought leader in the space and trusted consultant for recipe development and product research & development. He has mastered the art of gourmet grilling and has a passion for teaching others the art of the flame and cooking over fire.
