Rooster Teeth and Sean Evans Sample New York City BBQ | Sean in the Wild

  • Published on Dec 12, 2017
  • Once mocked for its lack of quality smoked meats, NYC has finally become a serious contender on the national BBQ scene. But does it have the chops to appease two Texas locals? In the hopes of gaining some perspective, Sean Evans enlists the help of Barbara Dunkelman and Burnie Burns-two of the visionaries behind Austin-based production company Rooster Teeth. At Fletcher’s in Brooklyn, chef Matt Fisher is busy combining Southern cooking techniques with international flavors, creating a barbecue style that’s distinctly New York. Will the pork char siu be enough to convert Barbara and Burnie to the church of NYC BBQ? Watch an all new episode of SITW and find out.

    You know what's great about BBQ? The different types!
    And the pride in the pit masters when they produce the best BBQ they can. And for the customers that argue over the best, otherwise there would be one type of bbq and no one would need to do anything better.

    Quit screwing around and come to Kansas City. We would love to have you. I reccomend Arthur Bryant's, home of the burnt end, and Joe's KC, one of Anthony Bourdain's "13 Places to Eat Before You Die." Texas is all brisket but ignores delicious smoked pork ribs and chicken. Hope you are well in the meantime; I love your videos. Bret

    remember that one time Texas tried to leave the USA and was promptly curb stomped by Mexico and came crawling back? Ahhh, good times.

    Americans are freaking strange... burns the meat and calls it yummi... why do you burn it...... (it is possible to slowcook without burning ) :)

      I was a cook at a bar and went to school for it too. The meat isn't burnt. The char on the outside that you see can be looking like charcoal but what it really is is the rub or sauce you put on it caramelizing and the fat too. The amazing thing about caramelizing is the burst of flavor and sweetness you can get! And it is really hard to do it well like this place and others have. Also since you have a shell around the eat all the juices stay in and the meat just becomes so tender and tasty ecause the melting fat mixes with the spices and so every bite has a little of that flavor!

    did anyone else think that was a really awkward introduction? Like describing RT as a TVclip channel and what does visionary even mean in this context??

    • Nathan Clarke
      Nathan Clarke 2 months ago

      It is a little awkward since they have RoosterTeeth.Com too but it isn't factualy false! They have had a huge TVclip presence for really all of TVclip's history!

    News York fuses BBQ with everything just like they do with most other foods. Pure BBQ doesn't need dressing up. We dry rub and no sauce on our BBQ where I am from. In fact the dry rubs tend to be on the light and simple side and only to enhance the cut of meat. We do pork, beef and chicken. If your meat is good quality and properly smoked, then you don't need to slather sauce on it

    Sorry why does the meat look so burnt?

    • Anita Boddie
      Anita Boddie 11 months ago

      THat guy Overthere Brisket is supposed to look like that. It is supposed to be slow cooked for up to 24 hours. Part of that time is actually resting. If it is seasoned with the right dry rub, it will not taste like charcoal or burnt. It really is good.
