Monk: YouTuber Mikey Chen tries lechon, or Filipino roast pork, at ORC Filipino Asian/American BBQ in Dallas, which was recently featured in Texas Monthly. There, owners Allen and Jho Cook roast the pork in the Filipino tradition over live coals, and that pork is accompanied by sides and other dishes from Jho’s hometown of Abuyog in the Leyte province of the Philippines. The ORC segment lasts from 2:15-10:20.
Description: Stumbled upon a truly delicious Filipino food experience in Dallas Texas where entire Lechons were roasted in the traditional way. Then went to try some unique Vietnamese fusion food as well as some cheesy Korean Fried Chicken!

Monk: If this pandemic ever comes to an end, I would love to make it to Cattleack BBQ in Dallas. For now, I will dream.
Description: Ranked best barbecue by D Magazine in 2018, the meat cutters at Cattleack serve beef ribs, brisket, and pork ribs to lines of people waiting to eat at the backyard-themed restaurant. What started off as a hobby for owners Todd and Misty David, Cattleack BBQ has now become a popular lunch spot able to seat hundreds of people.
Despite its popularity, it remains open for lunch only twice a week on Thursdays, Fridays, and the first Saturday of each month. We visited the popular BBQ joint to check out the seven smokers on their property, try our hand at slicing brisket, and serve customers alongside the owners.
Monk: This mostly wordless, made-for-social-media video goes back and forth between some pretty great barbecue joints: (in order) Buxton Hall Barbecue, La Barbecue, Skylight Inn, Convenience West, Lexington Barbecue, and Pecan Lodge. Despite the lack of narrative, there are still some pretty great visuals of each joint.
