Paul Sidoriak, Fire Starter, Director of Relationships

Paul Sidoriak's official title is Fire Starter because he makes things happen in his role as Director of Relationships and fires up his Kamado about 300 times each year, regardless of whether Mother Nature decides to cooperate with him at his home in western Montana. He is a social media, sales and marketing expert and before we tied him up, he consulted with some big name companies.

We got him because he loves cooking. His style is lighthearted, whimsical, and takes advantage of the season. "Although we have a limited growing season here in western Montana, our local family-run butcher shops, meat purveyors, and farmers' markets more than make up for it," he says. "I am so lucky to be able to call a specialty meat processor and ask them if they will set me up with a specific cut of meat for an upcoming cook. Sometimes I may have to wait a week for them to cut meat again, but it is well worth the wait." Check out some of his cooks on Instagram.

Sidoriak is the author of Exclusively Kamado, a book on how to make almost anything on the Kamado grill.
