This fun, 9 min short-film chronicles 24 hours of preparation by Dr. Howard Conyers, rocket scientist and BBQ Pitt Master as he roasts a whole cow for his Gumbo Jubilee celebration.
Gumbo Jubilee was a community-wide celebration of African-American culinary heritage and foodways, hosted by Dr. Conyers as a part of the 300th commemoration of the city of New Orleans. The event was held on Saturday, October 20th. Many notable African-American chefs, historians and food writers traveled to New Orleans to support the event.
Dr. Conyers, a South Carolina native, has received national attention for his whole pig roasts and lectures on black foodways. However, this was the first time he ever endeavored to roast a 300-pound cow–and it has not been done in the city of New Orleans in over a century.
See science, technology, engineering and great taste collide on a hot plate of fabulous eats from across the Diaspora!
