Bryan Furman BBQ | Pitmaster Spotlight

Bryan Furman became the first pitmaster named one of Food & Wine Magazine’s Best New Chefs. He’s caught the James Beard Foundation’s attention, too, landing on the list of semi-finalists for best chefs in the Southeast twice. Now, the successful barbecue entrepreneur steps into The Low & Slow Barbecue Show Spotlight – a spotlight that found him an out-of-the-ordinary location.

Listen to this episode and find out about Bryan’s latest project to open a new restaurant in Marietta, a town northwest of Atlanta where he brought a second B’s Cracklin’ Barbecue location after a start in Savannah. We talk about Bryan’s barbecue journey, including how he got started, who inspires him, and whether the “King of Georgia Barbecue” ever sees a permanent return to the Carolinas.
