Buxton Hall Barbecuehad a small fire last week after reopening but thankfully it was not catastrophic. They reopened briefly on Friday however per their Instagram have since closed again due to a “set back in building repairs” but they will be reopening “ASAP.” Here’s hoping that’s sooner rather than later.
Ryan (BBQ Tourist) and Sean (NYC BBQ) from The Smoke Sheet recently joined The BBQ Beat hosted by Kevin Sandridge to discuss the current state of barbecue during the pandemic, from when festivals may actually happen again to the meat shortage to more folks grilling or smoking at home while they are sheltering in place. This was my first exposure to BBQ Beat but looks to be a live show/video podcast worth checking out again in the future.
This update is from a few week’s back, but its great to see Ryan seemingly doing so well. To follow Ryan’s recovery (and donate if you feel so inclined), follow BBQ Tourist Recovery Fund on Facebook.
Description: In this episode of ’10 Minutes With’ I chat with Ryan Cooper about cancer; how he found out in November, just before Thanksgiving, what procedures he had, how his family and job reacted, what he’s dealing with now, and what the road ahead is. He’s very honest, very up front about everything. If you love BBQ and/or love Ryan you are going to really enjoy this.
