what it is guys with this crepe 502 in here we  just got to bump the timing up a little bit that's  

all it is so you call your buddy rutledge who  knows a lot about cars and a ton about barbecue  

this is the real deal this is the real deal  this is fox brothers barbecue smug wings he's  

up in the window fox builders is probably the best  barbecue i've ever had all right play it up just  

one of those places you got to come to pork blade  up in the window run it it's legit texas barbecue  

and they nailed it they are jonathan and justin  fox just your everyday barbecue loving texan twin  

brothers how'd you guys get this started we pretty  much just started cooking in our backyard for our  

friends and in 2007 they moved from backyard  parties into a massive business we smoked  

probably 10 000 pounds of pork and brisket a week  are there no other restaurants are we in are we  

we on an island pretty much it's now it's that  good hey you put good food out there people come  

which includes a big fan of what these twins are  turning out my buddy top gear host rutledge wood  

it is the best barbecue in atlanta hands down box  brothers burger up in the window the fox brothers  

burger is a mouthful it's sort of a misnomer  to call it a burger it's not a burger at all  

it's brisket you can tell it's just smoked all day  on the hickory your hair smells like it when you  

leave and that's how you know you're at a good  bbq joint all right let's get after it this is  

a certified angus beef just trimmed down this  fat just a little bit now we're gonna season  

our brisket with our salt and pepper seasoning  risk it with salt and pepper that is as texas  

as a cup now we're gonna go with smoker we're  gonna go the smoker great we cook it overnight  

10 to 12 hours at 200 205 degrees basically as low  as it'll go yep let's go so now what are we into  

our homemade barbecue sauce bring it doctor we got  a homemade ketchup we got some vinegar distilled  

white yep next up hot sauce anybody particular  texas pete yeah there you go well texas maiden

granulated garlic black strap molasses yep okay  brown sugar worcestershire sauce chili powder  

is that silent grunting yeah that's what we do in  the south when you like something you just go mmm

tomato onion that's a chopped beef sandwich call  it a burger call it burger i like it [Music]  

oh that's a great burger you're just like cleaning  up over there like a lion that just ate a gazelle  

i don't know what happened i went after mine it's  super tender brisket when you chop that brisket  

up you get a chance to incorporate that fat yeah  so it makes it even a little bit more anxious but  

adding the pimento cheese and adding the veggies  on top of it brings that burger element to it

that's fox brothers right there damn  man come on uh that's full speed man  

that's all throttle no bottle man  that is just getting it done [Music]  

i love bringing triple d to the islands  man i've been to oahu i've been to maui

favorites pork adobo plate coming right up every  time you come here you're going to get good food  

the service is great and i love the owners that  would be husband and wife robin ganir and gene  

nguyen who are mashing up down home food with  some far away flavors we make filipino hawaiian  

american food with a twist of my style where'd  you learn to cook my my family they they come  

from a cooking background um but it's you know  the backyard boogie right with the dance move  

i went to oahu got some uh schooling came back  and did your own gig yeah it's a new style of  

cooking hawaiian food garlic foodie coffee chicken  furikake chicken is so awesome it is like taking  

the best piece of southern fried chicken and  upping it up a notch the sauce is like a sweet  

garlicky sauce that is like amazing first we're  gonna start with the marinade for the chicken  

yes sir soy sauce a little bit of brown sugar two  teaspoons or four pounds white sugar black pepper  

a mess of garlic a mess of garlic woody cocky  so you got the dried seaweed and the sesame  

seeds yeah that's it bring it to a boil for three  minutes yeah we're gonna marinate the chicken in  

this no we're gonna de-fry it first we're gonna  deep fry the chicken and put this on it yeah  

boneless but skin on chicken thighs dusted in  the flour a little bit of granulated garlic yeah  

now our chicken is ready to fry 12 to 15 minutes  what temperatures are fire 350 in hawaii we say  

tree 350. next up chili pepper water hawaiian rock  salt minced garlic sriracha sweet chili sauce and  

hawaiian chili peppers get that with an immersion  blender and where's this sauce gonna go it goes  

on everything this is going to give you the tang  the sweet and the sweet it'll make you dance you  

don't want to see that chicken fries up boom it's  done and we're just going to dip it into the sauce

you just cut it up like so  three thighs load it up chef  

just give it a extra drizzle  on top put it cook it [Music]  

that's how you get it done right there is this  more filipino or more hawaiian that's more of  

like a hawaiian local that's my kind of food  right there all right the crunch of the chicken  

outstanding like over the top the sweet that  you're getting from the dip with the soy brown  

sugar and the garlic it's great but it's the  contrast that you get from the chili water

makes it sing you ain't wearing  board shorts after you eat this  

you know mumo [Laughter] the garlic furikake  chicken the chicken is absolutely incredible  

the sauce has this syrupy flavor to it with a real  sweet vacuum it's super tender on the inside it's  

really crunchy yeah yeah yeah it's like a luau  in your mouth dancers and everything so i'm here  

in burlington vermont to check out a joint where  this guy's getting such a claim people are saying  

that he should be the driver of the vegan bust  of flavor town this is pingala runner wrap please  

the crunch wraps this ooey gooey mess of  awesomeness with the beans the queso and the rice  

inside this crunchy flour tortilla that's just  toasted and grilled to perfection what are we  

gonna make first we're gonna do the crunchwrap  we get our chili going sunflower seed oil some  

fresh garlic mirepoix serranos so everything  that we love about a good chili chili powder  

cumin smoked paprika cinnamon some salt a little  brown sugar sweat that all together okay now add  

the tomatoes organic tomato paste tamari gives  a lot of depth flannels i get metal with lentil

onion rosemary grape sage tarragon parsley salt  i'm gonna get this going emulsify with the oil  

and it's ready to go in the processor with the  chickpeas and the peas nutritional yeast and  

then last secret ingredient here a little lemon  extract blend this down okay take our herb oil  

voila look at it from here and tell me it's not  avocado [Music] bro the texture is spot-on can i  

get this with some chips yeah man that probably  isn't the top five greatest vegetarian vegan  

items i've ever had in my life oh let's  make some cashew cheese i'm willing to learn  

we'll start with some soaked cashews sweet  potato puree nutritional yeast you got it  

cayenne oregano garlic powder some turmeric great  color from that little salt pepper and lemon juice  

and hot water you want to let this roll for a  little bit till it gets nice and smooth and creamy

it's outstanding it's creamy it's not over salty  it's not overpowering love the little bit of the  

lemon and the great thing is that little spice in  there yeah what's left oat milk cheese so boiling  

water adding our rolled oats in how long is this  gonna cook three to five minutes we're gonna get  

right in there nutritional yeast again turmeric  some garlic powder a little salt a lemon juice

fold it up and press this on a panini press  30 seconds 45 seconds there's your crunchwrap

bro it's outstanding the textures the seasoning  the fake avocado yeah probably was the foundation  

of me getting my mind blown  i mean out of vegetarian  

vegan dishes i've had in my life this is  easily in the top five if not top three

i would ground anybody who doesn't think they  like vegetarian vegan to come down here and try  

this it's remarkable get on a plane and come to  vermont remarkable crunchwrap i need a runner if  

you're a cheese lover this is the one to go to  it's just comforting it's really yummy now you

okay now we're going to take all the meat out of  the tail of the pasta this is for the filling yes  

all right so we get all the lobster meat out and  the legs also we're going to roll out the legs  

yes this is actually going to be quite comical  his big hands are this get after it boss squeeze

at home quite a bit my boys and i this is how my  grandmother taught me my mother how we do it add  

the eggs then a little salt for the extra virgin  olive oil because our pitchfork is in the shop  

we're gonna whip the eggs with this each time he  mixes it around a little bit more flour catches  

in incorporating into the eggs now it's kind of  like pasty but you stop folding in the flour and  

now just as much flour will stick to it as it can  and do you do all the prep and everything in this  

little kitchen yes we're making a sheeted pasta  we want to gently do this so you start this on the  

largest number exactly and we're going to work our  way down to like two and a half wow look at this  

there should be music to this right now this  should be a video when i get towards the end we're  

gonna fold it and make it a little bit more wider  better consistency so it really fits inside of the  

ravioli exactly there you go put a flower right  on top of the mold just press it in a little bit  

because that's where the filling's gonna go in wow  you don't skimp on the filling nope i just want  

you to see this that right there is plenty but  that is how much he puts in a ravioli over here  

crazy now we do another sheet yup right on top  press down to the two pasta's sealed together  

flip it over one two take the mold off and then  cut it with the dough cutter see where the ridges  

are then what we do is press them on all sides  make sure that they seal there's no air in these  

they hit a little flour put them on a sheet tray  what we'll do is we'll freeze them they'll seal  

even better and then you're off to go we're  going to make the lobster riville sauce now

fresh basil now we're gonna let it reduce we're  gonna put this onto the 15 step ravioli but in  

eight ravioli he's pulling harder for about two  and a half minutes want to have this on a simmer

yes let them drain add in their sauce now a little  pretty cheese parmigiano-reggiano here comes the  

monster meal just drop them right in there lobster  ravioli i can feel the firmness of the pasta hmm

leo's barbecue where he made that strawberry  cake and he made the ribs you remember that  

all that was good but i can't figure out how i  missed a joint that's been doing it for 67 years  

they've been doing this country cooking  and they're getting known now for something  

called yam fried chicken oh that's right  up my alley this is florence's restaurant

smothered pork chops there's no place like  florence is in the heartland i have chicken and  

dumplings country classic just like my grandmother  would have fixed back in the day when we were kids  

how'd you find this place man this place has been  around since the 50s which is when florence kemp  

started cooking up her brand of southern comfort  here at the age of 20 and she's still stirring the  

pot with the help of her daughter victoria how  many generations of families do you get coming  

through here we see fourth generation customers  it's gonna make you feel fantastic yes i was born  

and raised in the south and when i came here  i knew i'd found the mecca fried rib appetizer  

the fried ribs are really a unique kind of  experience it's a light breading it's not  

too thick the barbecue sauce is amazing  what are we gonna make today fried ribs  

like pork ribs yes how'd you know that's my middle  name guy fried ribs fieti how do you want to start

fix his dinner and so this is something i could  fix quick he was 105. holy moly so we go from the  

lemon juice and vinegar into the water now this  is gonna brine for a day the longest day is better  

the longer the better so when it gets  done we put the salt and pepper on it

the salt corn starch there we go baking powder  pepper and then we put that all over the ribs  

yes okay then we grind ribs for 15 minutes how  many come with an order florence three or four who

now we'll go ketchup we'll  let this cook down and then  

when the ribs come out we'll get  them with the sauce looking good

that's tasty

not too much batter nice and juicy  i think the key was that you soaked  

them in the vinegar got a nice little  flavor from that how you like that sauce  

oh there's good tang in that sauce ma'am  thank you i'm gonna have more fried ribs  

fry with appetizer enjoy it's already a good rib  but when you put that batter on top of it it just  

takes it over the top everybody should try a fried  rib right fine chicken right now in the hot grease  

your local food writer what is it about florence  the world moves really fast but it doesn't here  

florence is always here i mean it's an inspiration  for how good you can get if you take the time to  

do it that long when they ask what do you want i  said i want your yam fried chicken you've never  

tasted something that is so moist so good and so  flavorful what are we making now yeah i'm fried

it and season it with salt and pepper and then  we also have a little seasoning in the flour too  

how old are those dutch ovens there foreign of  them i don't think i've ever heard of anybody  

wearing out a dutch oven i think you probably  wore out some people that have worked here i  

think they've been people that come to work here  and that have had to go retire and you're still  

working yes and they ask me all the time when  i'm gonna retire i don't think that's gonna  

happen not soon i hope some of the people that  work here told me that you once a while you quit  

i didn't met him i was i don't work anymore and  where do you go nowhere oh i gotta try that i quit  

and we're gonna make candy yams out of these bunch  of cookiems put all of this sugar in there it's  

a lot of sugar ma'am you're in for a treat add  some butter after a while it'll turn into syrup  

anything else we're gonna serve with this we got  green cauldrons yes i'm going to put these in the  

pot and then i'll pour all this water in baking  soda there's the sugar salt chicken stock to put

did you know they have one of the only  copper-covered wood-fired french pizza  

ovens a la penol at this place where they're  doing off-the-hook pizza this is pizzeria lola

a lot of unusual flavors machironi  up i'm a chicago boy i know my pizza  

this is right up there with the best in  chicago there's attitude in every single pizza  

sliced and served up by owner ann kim who grew  up learning to cook from her korean grandma  

before discovering another passion a little later  in life margarita i lived in new york for seven  

years spent most of it while i was in college  eating pizza now she's back home in minnesota  

topping artisan crust with savory ingredients but  she's also got her eye on the fm dial and rocking  

a classic here's your myceroni it's just kind of  like a meat overload is that where it's from yeah

how are we going to start the dough make a  poolish for me it's all about the dough and  

the slow rise and the fermentation let's  see it first thing we're going to do is  

add some water a teeny bit of yeast and then the  flour now we mix this up yup for about five or  

six minutes until it's nicely incorporated no  lumps and then we let it sit about 17 hours in  

the basement make one for today that we're  gonna use for tomorrow yep exactly take it  

okay poolish is ready yes oh if they made cologne  this should be the guy fieri brand of cologne  

oh the pooh we're gonna dump the poolish in look  at that next we're gonna add italian flour and  

then some more yeast some cold water and last  some italian sea salt we're gonna let this proof  

up yes and now we'll mix her up [Music] 10 minutes  the key is to mix it just enough you don't want to  

get the glutens too stretchy and tight cover  it up let it sit for about 10 minutes cut it  

into nine ounce dough balls put it into a dough  tray and then put it in the cooler overnight so  

this isn't a 24-hour dough this is a 48-hour  house it's a two-day process oh it's gonna  

really nice yeasty flavor oh yeah i wanted to  open a bakery yeah we call it the yeasty boys  

i like it west coast minnesota so give me  the rundown what are we making we're making  

our house-made fennel sausage we have ground  berkshire pork we add toasted fennel seeds  

fresh chopped garlic chili flake salt and freshly  ground pepper should we grind ourselves of course  

you have to yup and you're saying all the  things it's like music we massage the pork

400 degrees 15-20 minutes yup got it next  up our house red sauce start off with some  

fresh ground california tomatoes stanislaus yes  how'd you guess from cali yeah oh yeah west side  

and then stanislaus red pear tomatoes tomato puree  salt dried basil dried oregano granulated garlic a  

little bit of onion powder whisker i wish i could  get some of this to go next up let's make a my  

cerone no throw no that's just for show you don't  believe centrifugal force has anything played in  

it maybe but you know this is just a nine-inch  pizza oh okay well the house red sauce wisconsin  

mozzarella fennel sausage that we made earlier  natural casing pepperoni bypass adios stick it in  

the oven so we're running the deck right around  what'd you say between 550 600 okay they cooked

look at that right there look how thin that is

we got this heirloom pork with the real  fat and the real flavor and the fennels  

rocking this a lot of people say oh sausage  and pepperoni i've had that all the time  

this is way beyond your everyday pizza  joint on the corner sausage and pepperoni  

you gotta try this one it's the most  heightened delicious pepperoni sausage  

pizza you've ever had you're like this is  what pepperoni is supposed to taste [Music]  

so like say that you're two hours east  of los angeles and an hour north of san  

diego and four hours southwest of  las vegas where does that have you  

right in the middle of the wine country  of temecula and you're saying to yourself  

i need a place to eat oh you got to  check this out this is hobo's barbecue

that is so good this place is just outstanding  it's the best barbecue i've had in southern  

california all right let's pull this everyone's  gonna tell you that al is a great guy i mean he  

would give anybody the shirt off his back  literally al borta had mad success in the  

t-shirt business and then his late wife holly  convinced him to open up a restaurant she loved  

the barbecue so much she wanted to do a barbecue  restaurant and that was it polly loved girl's  

barbecue triple d joint and you know gorilla you  know the great benny lynn all because of you i've  

known al for quite a while you're a great fan of  food you tasted barbecue from all over the country  

and this is what you put together hobos it's a lot  different than your average barbecue place what  

are we gonna make this is gonna be our house rub  all right let's get into it so we're gonna have  

raw sugar brown sugar coaster salt paprika black  pepper turmeric for color cocoa powder garlic  

cinnamon it's a lot of cinnamon out crazy like  that espresso cumin now what are we gonna use  

this on our brisket sandwich is our big guy a  lumberjack the lumberjack sandwich is delicious  

it's got the brisket on it it's got the potato  salad it's a hearty sandwich that's a big brisket  

that's certified angus beef and that's pretty high  in barbecue buddy it's got great fat you got great  

flavor so we're gonna dry rub this yeah all right  so we're gonna go to the old hickory smoker we do  

12 hours at 200 degrees okay and then we crank it  up to 275 for another four hours all right so what  

are we making now big al potatoes all dressing  okay mayo apple cider vinegar black pepper there

and then we finish it off with our house  dustin all right nice looking brisket nice bark  

look at this fat right here that right there  is where all that flavor is that is really good  

we're gonna use thin slices a little bit easier  to eat a sandwich so the potato salad roasts good  

the house made pickles a little potato dressing  and sriracha for a little cake what's it  

did you just eat off my plate ow a little bit  oh my goodness are we going to have a talk

i need a napkin oh thanks hand  

i get so much richness and good smoke from the  brisket itself but i get a little bit of that  

spicy acid from the sriracha and then i get to  taste that pickle and the contrast between the  

hot meat and the cold potato salad on the  crispy bun all plays together really well

that's a lights out sandwich i mean really  like a dynamite legit sandwich thank you

the meat by itself is incredible it's just really  tender i really like the potato salad you get a  

whole bunch of flavor profiles while you're  eating sitting here with a ufc great this is  

dan henderson and his daughter danny i've known  al for a long time i love the sandwiches and the  

pulled pork is awesome here too which is just one  of the meats going into the lasagna wait a second  

lasagna at a barbecue joint i've never had lasagna  like this before in my life it's like a meat pie  

it's like the perfect combination of it italian  lasagna and barbecue so we're brining chicken for  

what barbecue lasagna ow we just did great and  now you're gonna make me lasagna everyone seems  

to love it it's very good we'll see hot water  so the sugar kind of melted down a little bit  

salt fresh garlic okay red chili flake some thyme  cold water down before the chicken goes in so it  

doesn't start to cook the chicken how long you  left this brine 24 hours bring it out dry rub it  

into the smoker and how long is it gonna go in the  smoker about four hours what temp 225. shred it  

and now we're gonna make barbecue lasagna yes we  are oh that's gonna be good i'll put the sauce on  

the bottom to keep it from sticking we got noodles  that have been cooked off and we'll start building  

our layers do cool pork first you think that's  enough pork i was kidding yes one more sauce okay  

so we're gonna glue it all together with some  cheese another layer there you go put a little  

sauce on it our second layer is gonna be the whole  chicken that's all my favorite food groups in it  

top layer spicy cajun sausage that's been cooked  and rendered down meal like this looks like you're  

gonna be feeding ufc fighters we decorated  every one of these initials a couple hearts  

we wrap it it's gonna go in the oven for an  hour i can't wait to see this here we go i'll  

give you a normal sized piece you got a ton of  protein good amount of cheese and a lot of noodle  

ow buddy i'm a day it's exactly what you want  when you want some pasta you want some barbecue  

because that right there shouldn't work for a lot  

of reasons because of how big it  is and how much flavor there is  

but it is really good you got enough meat in  there but not too much just done in balance

that is true indulging dude well done it's richer  and heartier and just has a really good flavor  

i didn't know what to expect eating uh  barbecued lasagna but it's phenomenal  

it's really good you want the best barbecue  in town you go to whole books absolutely  

enjoy you guys nicely done buddy  you killed it thank you very much
