Pit Master Mark Smith of the Hog Pit Smokehouse
We got our ‘cue on this week, as we commenced our countdown to Father’s Day! Our show started with breaking news, reporting that Eclectic Pizza in Tucson had changed their name to Renee’s Organic Oven. Renee Kreager was on hand to give us all the exciting details. We then spent a few minutes with George Markou of the Fat Greek, who spoke about all the local and fresh ingredients he was bringing to his authentically Greek menu courtesy of the Markou Ranch. Our featured guest was Mark Smith, Pit Master at the Hog Pit Smokehouse. Mark teased us a little with his secrets to the best barbeque, which requires pecan wood, low-and-slow smoking, and a little love and attitude! We sampled some ribs and chicken, and a new one for us…the smoked ribeye!
