Ryan and his team were visited by Ching-he Huang, a best-selling author, chef and host from the U.K. "Easy Chinese: San Francisco" on The Cooking Channel and Bad S. BBQ was chosen for an episode that featured food fusion between Chinese and BBQ. But, most note-able about Bad S. BBQ is the backyard built smokers that Bad S.
