North Carolina’s barbecue legend, pit-master Ed Mitchell lives and breathes smoke and fire. He’s been barbecuing hogs since he was 15 and is considered one of America's top pit-masters. Ed Mitchell’s North Carolina-style barbecue honours the back to the basics approach of roasting whole hogs raised in the free-range ways of his great-grandparents, tapping into his family’s time-honored recipes and cooking techniques.
Mitchell is probably best known for winning a “Throwdown” with Iron Chef Bobby Flay in 2009. He is also a founding Pitmaster for the annual Big Apple Barbecue Block Party, now planning for its 10th annual event in 2012.
