BBQ Pitmasters: A New Series on TLC

•December 2, 2009 • 1 Comment

So for the past 3 months I have been a part of an amazing new TV series called BBQ Pitmasters that will be a new show on TLC  (http://tlc.discovery.com/tv/bbq-pitmasters/bbq-pitmasters.html) .  It is the story of 7 BBQ Pitmasters as they travel across the country doing BBQ competitions.  It was amazing to be a part of.  My part was to drive a Honda Mini- Van full of BBQ equipment around the country for Harry Soo and Slap Yo Daddy BBQ (www.Slapyodaddybbq.com).  In 3 months on the road I drove close to 11,000 miles all in the name of BBQ.  From San Diego to Dover Deleware and back.  It was an incredible journey, I met some amazing people, saw some beautiful places in this amazing country, and had the once in a lifetime chance to cook against, and watch, and hang out with the greatest of greats in BBQ, and the most incredible film crew in the world.   I made some incredible new friends on this journey.  So please everyone watch this new series and lets make it a success.    It premirs on TLC  on December 3rd at 10pm. Check your local listings.http://tlc.discovery.com/tv-schedules/series.html?paid=2.15917.56193.38850.x

CBS! (catering bbq success)

•October 29, 2009 • 1 Comment

Wow.  What a day yesterday was.   Thanks to a good friend of mine,  I did a tasting of my catering menu for the Wanda Sykes Show production staff.  It was at the CBS Studios up in Los Angeles.   I cooked Certified Angus Brisket, Duroc Pork, and did BBQ Beans, Coleslaw, and Cornbread.   Everyone loved the food, and one of the producers, Carlos, is good friends with my neighbor Dan, small world.    I was really happy that everyone enjoyed the food.  It is always good to hear people compliment you on your food.  Makes it all worth while.   It was cool being in the CBS building.   They shoot The Price is Right on the first floor, and people were lining up to get onto the show when I was unloading the food.    The Craig Ferguson Show is filmed next door, so hopefully the Notley Que will attract them as well. 

Here are a few fuzzy out of focus pictures I took with my phone.  

 

See you in a few.  I have some cooking to do.

Had the great pleasure of watching comedian Doug Benson tear it up at the Balboa Theater on Friday night.  Was even better hanging out with him in the green room after the show.   Check out Doug on twitter http://twitter.com/DougBenson  and check out me while you are there as well http://twitter.com/notleyquebbq. You never know who I might run into next.

Grilling on the Weber.

Since it was so hot out last week I figured why not cook outside every night. I broke out the 22.5 inch weber charcoal grill and grilled up beef, shrimp, chicken, and veggie skewers. I also grilled corn, asparagus, made beer can chicken, and a couple other dishes all on the grill.   Enjoy the pictures
