“Thursday, May 25th 6:30pm

In The South’s Best Butts, food writer and Southern gentleman, Matt Moore, waves away clouds of smoke to give barbecue-lovers a sneak peek into the kitchens and smokehouses of a handful of the Barbecue Belt’s most revered pitmasters. He uncovers their tried-and-true techniques gleaned over hours, days, and years toiling by fire and spit, coaxing meltingly tender perfection from the humble pig-the foundation of Southern BBQ.

More than a book of recipes, Matt explores how the marriage of meat, cooking method, and sauce varies from place to place based on history and culture, climate, available ingredients and wood, and always the closely-guarded, passed-down secrets followed like scripture. Because no meat plate is complete in the South without “all the fixin’s” to round out the meal, Matt cues up patron-sanctioned recipes from every establishment he visits. One thing is for certain…this book will change the way you cook, smoke, grill, and eat, but be warned: Your own butt may suffer in the process.”

Also: “Rob Sonderman of Federalist Pig fame will be joining for a discussion and to hand out free samples.”

    Federalist Pig is just killing it, best opening of the year so far IMO. Speaking of changing the way you BBQ, if you’ve never sous vide your butt before smoking it for a few hours I highly suggest you give it a try!

  • Bobert

    I haven’t been in a while, but has he been able to get better smoke penetration? It wasn’t so great in the early days.

    • Rich

      Federalist’s output doesn’t seem quite as good as the original DCitySmokehouse, which used to justify a 1 1/2 mile walk from me.

      • MadMax

        Personally I find it better than the original DCity, to each their own.
