Rodney Scott, Barbecue Man

Our main man Rodney Scott is everywhere these days. You may have seen him in Saveur last month. You should definitely see this short film about him. He and chef Sean Brock won 'Best In Show' at last weekend's Meatopia event in New York. And now he's the subject of a feature in Time magazine. We're lucky enough to spend a good deal of time with him at various BBQ festivals around the country, so keep an eye out for him if you're not able to make it to his Hemingway, South Carolina shop for a whole hog sandwich.

At this year's Memphis In May festival:

RIP Alex Steinweiss

We're sorry to hear of the passing of "the inventor of the album cover." Read a bit about him and see some of his work here.

Texas BBQ in Atlanta

Big thanks to the good people at Black's Barbecue in Lockhart, Texas for the shipment of brisket, sausages and ribs. The stuff travels through the mail incredibly well, and our office currently smells pretty amazing:

On The Boudin Trail With The Southern Foodways Alliance

We recently spent a couple of days in Louisiana with our friends from the Southern Foodways Alliance. A few of the many highlights are below.

Dinner at Cochon, New Orleans:
Thanks to Stephen Stryjewski and Donald Link for the dinner below, and for having Paul Prudhomme come by and chat for a while:
After a quick stay in New Orleans, it was off to explore the boudin trail. First stop was Bergeron's meat market in Port Allen, LA for boudin links, crawfish pies, meat pies and jerky:

Then it was on to the Mowata Store for more boudin, courtesy of Bubba Frey:
Dinner was at Hawk's for huge plates of crawfish. For those that have never been here's it's as if they tried to make sure nobody can find the place. We've never been to a more out-of-the-way restaurant.

Can't remember if this is Spuds McKenzie or Alex from Stroh's:
A plate lunch, featuring smothered rabbit, smothered cabbage, smothered okra, and rice & gravy:

A small-town bar in Eunice, LA - we met up with Donald and Stephen from Cochon again and proceeded to spend a good $20 on the jukebox:
And the final destination, Best Stop, for fried boudin balls and cracklins:

Web Design - Cibo e Beve, Atlanta, GA

We've launched the website for Cibo e Beve, a new Italian restaurant slated to open in mid-July in Atlanta. Check it out:

Hot Chicken Festival - Nashville, TN

Just in case you don't know, everything you need to know about Nashville's claim to fame, hot chicken, can be found here, thanks to our friend, filmmaker Joe York. We stopped by the 5th annual Hot Chicken Festival yesterday and visited the usual suspects (Prince's, Bolton's), but were happy to see East Side Fish represented...the 'crunkest' fish in town.
