Connecticut Chefs Challenge Winners Belt!

We’ve been counting down the days, hours, and minutes until 7 pm this Friday, 9/18 at the Lincoln Culinary Institute in Shelton. That’s when 8 super-talented chefs from Connecticut will do battle to see who takes home the culinary belt and gets to brag about the win all year long. But, it’s not just about watching these incredibly talented chefs do battle and rib each other. Nope. You can check out the buffet, taste some apps, drink some free wine and beer (Host Chef Plum’s arranged for some great beer, btw), and dessert! Also, there will be some judges that we love there, too: Chef Derrick Prince of Stanton Social, Judy and Joy, and Ken Tuccio.

Real Deal Texas BBQ @ Hoodoo Brown BBQ in Ridgefield w/ Pitmaster Nestor Laracuente

A new BBQ joint in CT. I will be the judge of that. Looks like I have some BBQ in my near future. Who’s in?


Hoodoo Brown BBQ in Ridgefield CT Side Room with Large Table

Call us jaded, but when we hear about a new bbq joint opening up here in CT we are more than skeptical. To be honest, we have only found one spot (Bear’s in Hartford) that had good meats and good sides with the rest of places here in CT having one or two good items, but never holding out a full house. Well, we suspect things ’bout to change ’round these parts with the opening of Hoodoo Brown BBQ in Ridgefield on May 15 at 6 pm. We can safely say that from what Dan tasted recently during a special preview, that Hoodoo Brown BBQ has the potential to be the best in the state, if not the surrounding states. Wooooh, demm fighting words! Okay, let us explain:
