"MEAT" THE BOYS IN THE BACK ROOM

Meet two chefs - one very competitive that took him to culinary gold in the 2016 Culinary Olympics, and one very determined to go from smokehouse smoker to restaurant owner. Ben Grupe, of Elaia, and Alex Cupp, owner of The Stellar Hog, went to the same grade school and learned more about each other nine years ago when Alex was supposed to have his first night on the line at a popular restaurant, but Ben stole his thunder and left him to do the dishes! Sit back and enjoy a fun evening of bantering and laughter between the two as they share some fun techniques creating smoked chicken lollipops, ribs, smoked beef-pork forcemeat "sausage", plus delicious seasonal sides.
