Sean Evans Samples America's Best Barbecue | Sean in the Wild

  • Published on Jun 27, 2017
  • The term "barbecue" means something different depending on where you are and who you ask. From Texas and Tennessee, to North Carolina and Alabama, every region has its own way of doing things. Like all red-blooded Americans, Sean Evans loves his pulled pork, baby back ribs, and brisket. But as a New Yorker, he can't always pack up his bags and head down south for dinner. Luckily, the Big Apple Barbecue Block Party brings some of the nation's best pitmasters to NYC every year. Will Sean fall in love with Shane Griffith's burnt ends, or hold out for Chris Lilly's award-winning pulled pork? Watch this meat-tastic episode of SITW and find out.

    I am a 58 year old Japanese Businessman I travelled arround in the world. And whenever I hear "celebrated" or all this anticipations you can be sure the food will be shit.It was some of the small places that surprised me all those high valued guys are in many cases plain terrible.

    The best bbq I've had was in peoples back yards. Youcannot replace the beers, the laughs, and the love that went into a cut of meat.

    What is the deal with Plain white bread in BBQ, why dont you guys toast it, or use a sourdough, white bread is so plain. I guess it's good for BBQ sammies, but like, theres only ever one slice served.

    I'm from Memphis and if you're a white BBQ champ...that everything else STOLEN from black folks down there...odds stole the style and technique from a legion of black BBQers and called it your own. Everyone knows the best BBQ on the planet is Memphis style and if challenged this Wheeler guy would admit to a ripoff of some kind.

    If some person says or writes "America's Best BBQ" without including the brisket from Franklin BBQ in Austin (best on Earth BTW), that person should never be taken seriously when it comes to BBQ. That same person probably thinks the McRib is great BBQ. Pffft...

    "Will Sean fall in love with Shane Griffith's burnt ends, or hold out for Chris Lilly's award-winning pulled pork?" - We never got to find this out! We're missing a rundown from Sean and his thoughts on each of the things he ate. On one clip, it cut away as soon as he started to eat. For sure, the time with the guests was limited, but some solo camera time would have been great anyway.
