Local chefs are getting their BBQ jam on with Lamb Jam Boston 2017. On Sunday, May 7th, six New England cookers will showcase their smoke-y skills for an afternoon barbecue bash. Chefs Tiffani Faison of Sweet Cheeks Q, Andy Husbands of The Smoke Shop, John Delpha of Rosebud, Lars Taylor of Portland’s Honey Paw, Pliny Reynolds of Portland’s Terlingua and Jake Rojas of Providence’s Providence will compete for the title of Lamb Jam Pitmaster.
From 3:00-6:00pm, guests will get to taste the dishes alongside local beers and spirits – and cast their vote for the winner. Tiger Mama‘s Will Isaza will be shaking and stirring specialty bourbon cocktails for the occasion and there are brown liquor flights to be had from folks like Evan Williams, Larceny Bourbon and Henry McKenna. Boston-based rock band These Wild Plains will keep things lively while the chefs keep things lamb-y, including whole smoked lamb from The Smoke Shop, a DIY cornbread bar stocked with toppings and sheep treats from previous competitors Michael Sherman (Elm Square Oyster Co.) and Brian Miller (Hops Test Kitchen).
