Scott Thomas

Scott Thomas, the Original Grillin’ Fool, was sent off to college with a suitcase and a grill where he overcooked, undercooked and burned every piece of meat he could find. After thousands of failures, and quite a few successes, more than two decades later he started a website to show step-by-step, picture-by-picture, foolproof grilling instructions so that others don’t have to repeat the mistakes he’s made on the grill.

Continually challenging the traditional “rules” and “standards” of BBQ, Scott will grill anything from lettuce and leeks to brisket and bread. He has written feature articles for both St. Louis and Feast Magazines, been quoted in the Wall Street Journal and appeared on countless television and radio spots in his hometown of St. Louis as well as in nationally televised tailgating commercials for Coca-Cola during NASCAR races on NBC.

Scott is a husband and father of three boys and a girl, residing in St. Louis, home of the rib of the same name, and the birthplace of the pork steak. When not blogging or crushing Instagram, he works in IT.
