Today we feature legendary pitmaster Ed Mitchell and his son Ryan! Ed tells us that he got into the bbq business after making a whole hog for his mom one day for lunch at their mom and pop grocery store in Wilson, which quickly got the attention of customers and became incredibly popular even outside of town. Ed and Ryan went on to open The Pit, which delivered barbecue cooked in the way that it was traditionally done, creating a new market for meat in Raleigh and Durham. Tune in to hear more about the incredible father-son duo and their new venture, The Preserve! ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Hospitality industry veterans, Max Trujillo and Matthew Weiss, get behind the scenes of North Carolina's burgeoning food and beverage culture.
