With the show having a #BBQ theme, who better to be special co-host this week than pitmaster Timothy Monk of MONKMAN’S BBQ & EGG ROLLS known for his legendary egg rolls and delicious homemade Bar-B-Que. He had a passion and hobby for barbecuing that with hard work and recipe development has turned a dream into a loyal local cult following. People anxiously wait for his pop-up events to be announced and as soon as they are they always sell-out in mere hours.

We will kick things off talking to Bill Gillespie a bestselling author and the founder of Smokin’ Hoggz BBQ an award-winning barbecue team that has claimed top prize in the Jack Daniel’s World Championship Invitational BBQ and the American Royal Association Invitational, and has won hundreds of other barbecue awards. His new book ‘Hot and Fast BBQ on Your Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker’ teaches grillers how to get amazing BBQ as fast as possible on their Weber Smokey Mountain. The book starts by teaching readers the basics of getting started with a Weber Smokey Mountain including components of the grill itself, differences between the size options, and the most important ingredients for smoking success (charcoal, smoke wood, brines, marinades, etc.) to ensure they have the groundwork laid out before hopping into one of Bill’s award-winning recipes.

Then Chris Sussman, a.k.a. The BBQ Buddha will join us. He has cooked on award-winning BBQ competition teams such as EGGcellent Eats and Dizzy Pig, and is a member of the Big Green Egg Pro Team. In Chris’s cookbook, ‘The Four Fundamentals of Smoking’ it teaches readers about the four fundamental principles that have the most impact on whether the meat comes out tasting succulent, tender and pleasantly smokey, or dry, rubbery and bland. Chris demystifies concepts like controlling air flow and humidity to perfectly capture smoke flavor in food, as well as maintaining the ideal BBQ zone temperature, and the secrets to knowing when a cook is complete, which go beyond internal temperature. Chris gives readers a sturdy foundation of knowledge, then shares foolproof recipes demonstrating these techniques in action with additional tips, so their BBQ comes out perfectly tender with incredible smoky flavor every time.

Last, but certainly not least we’ll chat with Adam McKenzie the creator of This Jew Can Que. His debut cookbook, ‘Weeknight Smoking on Your Traeger’, shows people that smoking and grilling have never been easier thanks to his recipes that take advantage of the hands-off, fast-cooking features of the popular Traeger Grills and other wood pellet grills so that grilling doesn’t have to be a hobby reserved for the weekend. It’s something you can easily include in your busy life for a weeknight meal, thanks to Adam’s recipes that take advantage of the hands-off, fast-cooking features of the popular Traeger grill and other wood pellet grills. Also Adam has collaborated with nationally recognized brands, namely Traeger® Wood Fired Grills as well as Snake River Farms, Head Country Bar-B-Que and more as well he has partnered with Spiceology to create a line of seasoning blends.

Hey Everybody! Check out that “Fat Pig”

Fette Sau – Philadelphia, PA

It seems like Philadelphia has gained an affirmation for all things Brooklyn, New York related lately. The Piazza at Schmidts held a Brooklyn Flea Market it seemed like every weekend this summer and before that Philadelphia’s restaurant mogul Stephen Starr recruited Brooklyn based BBQ restaurant owner Joe Carroll to open another Fette Sau (FS) here in October of 2012 connected to another Stephen Starr location Frankford Hall and just a few blocks away from the hipster hideaway Piazza.

I do not know much about Brooklyn, but what I can tell you is that if there are more restaurants up there as good as FS I hope more and more of them transplant their way down to Philly for their second locations. As you will see in the pictures below I got a little bit of everything at FS. Nothing I had there disappointed me in the least except for one particular thing, but their were some ups and downs. FS stands for fat pig, and if I could go there more often I just might become one.

Lets just get started with the great. The short rib is hands down AMAZING! Go to FS just for it. Eat it in all of its wonderfulness, it is that good. I have never had a better one yet, and I have eaten a lot of BBQ. Just look below at me eating it in all my glory and you will have picture of how happy it can make a man.

The baked beans were fabulous as well. Very nice chunks of burnt ends, beautiful combination of spices thrown in, and just a delight to eat. The ribs were cooked perfectly and of excellent quality, texture, and taste as well. Just when put up against the short rib it had some big expectations to follow. The pork was good, but just not anything notable and I have had better at much cheaper rates other places and the mushrooms were a dud. They were nice, but I was sort of over them after popping four to five of them in my mouth. They would be great for free as a mini-side, but not something I would pay for.

With the good must come the bad though. FS is a carnivore paradise and a damn good BBQ joint at that. What they are not, is somewhere that has any resemblance of good BBQ sauce makers. I enjoy my BBQ wet or dry, but some people insist on having to have some sort of sauce on their meats. If you are one of these people you may want to bring a cup of your own sauce to FS. FS’s sauces to me and the person who joined me were so hands down terrible, they actually made me second guess if the meats were as good as I thought they were until I took another bite without sauce on them. I hate to admit it, but I would rather have some mass produced corn syrup infused BBQ sauce sitting on the table instead of what they put out there. It is shameful and completely unacceptable for the quality of meats they are producing that someone could actually leave there thinking that FS is not making good BBQ if they can not enjoy eating their meats dry only. I actually thought maybe it was just the container on my table, but the sauces tasted exactly the same on the other tables as well, so I do not know if the entire batch was bad or if that is really what they serve on a daily basis. I know what I said was harsh. Just know what you are in for with the sauces, but other than that you must go to FS for some of the best BBQ meats in the Philadelphia region. Be aware also that FS is not cheap to eat at, and even with the sauce debacle, mushrooms not being that great, and pork only being ok, FS has my heart with short ribs I feel in love with.
