Grady, a native of Fort Worth, Texas, was born with the love for the cowboys’ way of life, including the culture and the food they love. Whether at home on the ranch or a visit to town, Grady knows the way straight to the heart of every cowboy and cowgirl.
Born in Fort Worth, Texas, he grew up dreaming of being a cowboy. In high school Grady traded his cleats and football pads for boots, spurs and a rope. He soon began working in the cattle business for the well known Vann-Roach Cattle Company. Not always the glamorous side of buying and selling (which he later did), but the down and dirty side of the feedlots, learning all about the cow. This qualified him for jobs working on ranches and truly living his cowboy dreams. He also witnessed the hard work, integrity and no nonsense truth that separates the corn from the cabbage or the beef from the tofu. It was here that after an unfortunate departure of a cook, Grady grabbed an apron, cooking utensils and said “give me the beef”! Hence a celebrity chef was born. Using the chuckwagon chuckboard and the campfire, he began cooking what we now refer to as Cowboy Cooking.
