Congratulations To Our Very Own Heath Hall – Winner of The Travel Channel’s American Grilled in Annapolis, MD

A special shout out to Pork Barrel BBQ’s own Heath Hall on winning the Annapolis, MD episode of The Travel Channel’s American Grilled. On the episode Heath grilled against three other opponents over three rounds, with one griller getting eliminated after each round.

American Grilled


In the first round the secret ingredients were beaten biscuits and sausage. Heath made a beaten biscuit pesto, heirloom cherry tomato chutney and crumbled sausage bruschetta. In the second round the secret ingredients were oysters, fresh chicken and artichokes. Although Heath choked a bit on his artichokes his BBQ Chicken with burnt orange vinaigrette and grilled scampi oysters with bacon crumble helped him overcome under cooked grilled artichokes and move him into the final round. In the final round the secret ingriedents were some of the most amazing looking tomahawk steaks ever seen by man, Maryland blue crab, muskmellon and canned sardines. Heath made a wet coffee sardine rub for the steak and grilled it to a perfect medium-rare, and accompanied it with a blue crab and muskmellon salsa and a loaded mashed potato.

 If you get a chance to watch the show let us know what you think in the comments and tell us what you would have created with each rounds secret ingredients.

In “American Grilled,” hardcore grilling enthusiasts from across the country go head-to-head for a chance to compete for a $10,000 cash prize and bragging rights when they are crowned the ultimate “grill master.” In this outdoor cooking challenge, host and renowned chef/restaurateur David Guas turns up the heat on four highly-motivated contestants who must use locally sourced ingredients – blue crab in Maryland, quail in Georgia and T-bone steaks in Texas, to name a few – to create delicious and original plates that test their epic backyard skills.  

“Crazy Surf & Turf” – New Episode Premieres Wednesday, July 9 at 9:00 p.m. ET/8:00 p.m. CT

Host David Guas travels to Annapolis, Md., home of the state capital, the US Naval Academy, and one of the oldest ports in America. In Maryland, they’re big on sailing, seafood and American pride. Four killer grillers – Julie, Heath, Mike and Eric battle it out to take home the $10,000 prize at Annapolis Harbor Dock – a historic spot for concerts, festivals and art.  The competitors must use unique local ingredients – like beaten biscuits, blue crabs, and giant tomahawk steaks to win over the judges in each round.  Guas is joined by guest judges Danielle “Diva Q” Dimovski (a former Jack Daniels World Pork Champion and World Bacon Champion) and George Hensler (a Maryland pit master). It’s a high-heat, high–intensity, battle for the cash and hometown pride.

Pork Barrel BBQ in Cowboys & Indians Magazine

04-14 - Cowboys & Indians - 1

We are very excited to announce that there is a great article on Pork Barrel BBQ sauces in the April 2014 issue of Cowboys & Indians Magazine.

04-14 - Cowboys & Indians - 2

Cowboys & Indians had this to say, “We suggest the original rub and barbecue sauce for starters, but don’t overlook Pork Barrel’s equally delicious variations, either. Try the sweet sauce with chicken, the mustard on pretzels, and use the vinegar blend for a classic South Carolina pulled pork sandwich.”
