A family man first and foremost, Pitmaster Thad aspires to be able to show his soon-to-be world-famous Mississippi 2-Step Smoked Fried Chicken to a national (and international) television audience.

Chef Thad intends to use this digital platform to help foster a national discussion on why being a father is important in this day and age, and show how young fathers can use the art of cooking in order to help them spend meaningful time with their own families.
