Home Team BBQ will host a Slow Meat Pitmaster Roast at their new downtown location (126 Williman Street) on Saturday, March 5 to promote the national educational campaign—Slow Meat and to raise funds for Slow Food Charleston. Several of the South’s top pitmasters including Aaron Siegel, Taylor Garrigan, and Madison Ruckel from Home Team BBQ, Jonathan and Justin Fox from the Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q in Atlanta, Carey Bringle from Peg Leg Porker Restaurant in Nashville, and Pat Martin of Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint in Nashville will participate in the event alongside Chef Michael Gallina, former chef de cuisine at Blue Hill at Stone Barns. Each featured pitmaster and chef will have a station serving up a variety of dishes featuring “slow meat” (some on Cowboy Cauldrons) and there will be an assortment of snacks and sides. Specialty cocktails featuring High Wire Distilling Co. and beer by Holy City Brewing will be available. The event is from 6:00 to 9:00PM and costs $50 per person plus tax. This includes the food and three drink tickets.

After the Roast, attendees will have access to an After Show Concert featuring Big Bill Morganfield™, a multi-award winning blues artist. The son of McKinley Morganfield (a.k.a.
