Ain't it the Life
HEAD COOK: Brandon OGuin
COMPETITION: World Seafood Championship
I grew up on Memphis BBQ, but eating the best wasn’t enough. I joined a BBQ team and tried to perfect smoking ribs, shoulder, even whole hogs. My culinary talents also include seafood, steak, breakfast, burgers and jalapeño popper cooking contests. My backyard is a dedicated kitchen with an open pit for cooking 1/4 of a cow. Why make something easy when you can make something delicious? I share my passion for identifying the best BBQ in the world by training judges at the Memphis in May World Championship BBQ Cooking contest. This year I even had the honor to train Foo Fighters front-man Dave Grohl. Memphis BBQ is a magical thing, it even lead me to meet my wife Michelle. So what else can I say but "Ain't It The Life".
