Hog Wild – Louisiana Eats – It’s New Orleans
Then, we talk with three members of a team going above and beyond, finding a way to bring home the bacon for Hogs all year round. Silence of da Hams is comprised of Chris Montero of the Napoleon House, Michael Brewer of Baton Rouge’s City Pork, Tory McPhail of Commander’s Palace, Jared Ralls, and its newest member, Parkway Bakery’s Justin Kennedy. To increase their annual giving to the Hogs cause, the original four chefs developed a Louisiana-style smoked sausage now available at Rouse’s Markets and other groceries throughout the Gulf South.
Finally, we speak with pitmaster and food writer Colleen Rush, who has been setting the world of backyard barbeque on fire. Along with co-author Gary Wiviott, the Louisiana native has created a comprehensive guide to barbecue and charcoal cooking techniques in their book, Low & Slow 2: The Art of Barbecue, Smoke-Roasting, and Basic Curing.
