Meet Terri Mathews, Barbecue Showdown Season 2 Winner Thyron Mathews Spouse

Terrishane “Terri” Mathews is the wife of Thyron Mathews. The chef met his future wife at Upper Iowa University. They started talking as he assisted her in using a waffle maker. Terrishane then agreed to volunteer as “free help” in Thyron’s kitchen. On December 31, 2001, Terrishane and Thyron got married.

Terri wrote a post on her Facebook to her husband in January 2018 to celebrate their anniversary, “After all these years he still makes me laugh. He still makes me feel safe, He still makes my stomach get butterflies because he is my ride or die He is my everything. I thank God for him daily. Happy anniversary husband of 16 years.”

Likewise, on Thyron’s birthday, she wished her husband, “Today I wanted to wish my husband Happy Birthday!!!! Today you are officially old. You are such a kind heart and are always willing to give to others. Today I want to give back to you by sending my love:prayers: and a few gifts. Happy birthday to the best husband in the world!!!.”

They revived T&T BBQ, now standing for Thyron and Terri, briefly resided in West Union, and kept hosting cookouts or “cooks” for friends and family. In 2004, they moved to Oelwein, and in 2018, they made a new home there.

They offer “the full barbecue experience,” promoting local businesses by purchasing from them and word of mouth — such as Fareway, Dollar Fresh, Fairbank Locker and Processing, and Kerns Homegrown — and supporting local causes by cooking to raise funds — such as Fayette County first responders and Iowa State Patrol, Oelwein Little League, Oelwein Dollars for Scholars and MercyOne Oelwein Medical Center.

“Me and my wife are so honored when we get mentioned to do stuff like that,” Thyron expressed during an interview in 2021.

Thyron is 43 years old in 2023. Thyron has been barbecuing for 28 years. He was raised on barbecue growing up on a farm in Florida. He initially started T&T BBQ with his friend Torie Handson and the original initials of T&T BBQ composed by their name.

Eventually, Thyron began entering contests. He won his first grand championship barbecue trophy at NewBo City Market in Cedar Rapids in 2013, competing against $20,000 grills with a $2,000 grill Iowa welder Jason Belden helped him assemble from a tank donated to Thyron.

After the Cedar Rapids trophy, Thyron was “bit by the bug.” Since then, he has won 31 additional championships. This includes two consecutive years as “Best in Show Iowa Barbecue” at the Iowa State Fairs in 2018 and 2019.

Thyron works as a corrections administrator in Fayette County. He was celebrated for 20 years of dedicated service in June 2022 by Sheriff Marty Fisher. As a proud wife, Terri gushed about her husband, “When your husband put in the hard work and grind! Keep it up, babe. Im so proud of you.”
