Pitmaster Pop Up at The Smoke Shop

The Smoke Shop Facebook

For all the haters who say you can’t get good barbecue north of the Mason-Dixon, The Smoke Shop is out to prove you wrong. They’ve fired up their Pitmaster Dinner Series again this year, inviting barbecue masters from around the country to come cook their specialties for you. On Wednesday, October 16th, they’re hosting Leslie Roark Scott (aka @barbequeprincess) and Craig Verhage (aka @thebbqninja) from Mississippi’s Ubons Barbecue. Drop in for passed apps and a three-course dinner featuring smoked catfish, hush puppies, and Mississippi-style baby back ribs. The dinner is sponsored by Maker’s Mark, so your $49 ticket includes a bourbon cocktail, all the food, and a Q&A with the chefs. These events sell out fast, so don’t wait—click here for yours.
