Midwood Smokehouse Pitmaster, Matt Barry
Visit Charlotte, N.C., today, and you’ll find a food landscape with everything you can imagine, including a diverse selection of barbecues. But at one time, Charlotte was a food desert for good barbecue – until Midwood Smokehouse arrived in a trendy and eclectic neighborhood east of Uptown. With Pitmaster Matt Barry running the barbecue show for FS Food Group, one restaurant in 2011 has grown to six in the Carolinas.
Matt joins the Low & Slow Barbecue Show to walk you through Midwood Smokehouse. Listen and hear about his cola barbecue sauce recipe for burnt ends. Find out what fuels the Midwood Smokehouse pitmaster and his restaurants (an impressive all-wood Oyler smoker from J&R Manufacturing.) Don’t miss Matt’s opinion on the best state for barbecue and his favorite Carolinas barbecue restaurant.
