Pit master interviews

the best pit masters in the world

I have had the opportunity to cook with some of the best flavor masters in the world. I enjoy learning new things and watching these guys work. I get an interview here and there, and I always treasure the time they take to share their stories with me, and now, with you. Enjoy. These are good people.

Tank Jackson - Holy City Hogs & Michael Ollier - Certified Angus Beef

My friend Tank knows more about raising hogs than anyone I’ve ever met. The hog he and his family raised for Peg Leg Porker, won 7th in the World Championship Barbecue Contest in Memphis just a few weeks ago. We caught up with Tank Jackson with Holy City Hogs and Michael Ollier from Certified Angus Beef. We talked a little about quality pork and beef, as well as how these animals are raised. Thanks guys!
