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.
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.
