Monk: Dave Grohl fulfills a bucket list item when he appeared on Hot Ones last month (and crushed it like a champ), and during the cedar-smoked Dawson’s Hot Sauce wing (7,000 on the Scoville heat unit scale), the question turns to his “deep and abiding” love of barbecue. When host Sean Evans asks him what the secret to a great barbecue rub is, Grohl answers “simplicity” and opines on the beauty of a simple salt and pepper rub. He also shouts out NC whole hog legend Sam Jones at 5:45.
Description: Dave Grohl is one of the most requested Hot Ones guests of all time. He’s also a 16-time Grammy Award–winning artist whose storied career in music has been immortalized in the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame on two separate occasions. He has a recently released New York Times best-selling book as well, The Storyteller – Tales Of Life And Music, and—get this!—a comedy horror movie starring the Foo Fighters is on the way: Studio 666, which is set to release in theaters on February 25th. But how is he with spicy food? Find out as the rock legend takes on the wings of death and discusses the best drummers of all time, the art of the cover song, and why doing Hot Ones has been on his bucket list.
Sean Evans of Hot Ones fame explores NYC’s barbecue scene
Once mocked for its lack of quality smoked meats, NYC has finally become a serious contender on the national BBQ scene. But does it have the chops to appease two Texas locals? In the hopes of gaining some perspective, Sean Evans enlists the help of Barbara Dunkelman and Burnie Burns—two of the visionaries behind Austin-based production company Rooster Teeth. At Fletcher’s in Brooklyn, chef Matt Fisher is busy combining Southern cooking techniques with international flavors, creating a barbecue style that’s distinctly New York. Will the pork char siu be enough to convert Barbara and Burnie to the church of NYC BBQ? Watch an all new episode of SITW and find out.
Unfortunately for Daras, he doesn’t own the flagpole-sized plot, though, because Bessinger sold the flag pole and the land it’s sitting on to a Confederate veterans’ group, precisely so he could ensure it would never be taken down.
