TEXAS’S VERY OWN HAS GROWN QUITE A NAME FOR HIMSELF IN THE FOOD SCENE: HE’S WIDELY CONSIDERED TO BE A “BBQ GOD” IN HIS HOME STATE AND ACROSS THE COUNTRY, TOO. HIS COMFORT BBQ FOOD IS SO DELICIOUS, HE’S OFTEN SERVING IT UP TO SOME OF COUNTRY MUSIC’S BIGGEST NAMES. MATT HAS EVEN TAUGHT CELEBRITIES HOW TO SLOW-COOK A BRISKET. WHEN HE’S NOT SERVING UP SOME OF THE TASTIEST SOUTHERN FOODS, YOU CAN FIND MATT RIDING HIS CAN-AM SPYDER F3-S, RACING ACROSS THE COUNTRYSIDE AND EXPLORING NEW TERRAIN.
An Aussie named Dolly and a cat named Milo; they’re like our fifth and sixth kids.
Where’s your favorite place to ride?
Out to my lake house on country roads where you can just relax and look out at the water.
What is your dream riding destination?
Salt flats or somewhere I can go as fast as possible!
What’s a fun fact about you?
I’m an Ironman. Then, I got good at BBQ...
Your favorite food
Not BBQ! Any and all Asian food. I could live on sushi, rice and noodles.
Your favorite genre of music
Country and rock and roll. We have tons of friends in country music, but it’s tough to beat a rocking Whiskey Myers show.
Tell us about your philosophy of life
Work really hard, play even harder.
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not out there riding?
Hanging with my kids or hunting.
