Note: I was invited as media to this event. However any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

During the virtual experience I hear grilling tips from Big Moe while watching him prepare a brisket for BBQing. It was a unique experience.

After the demo, I was able to ask Moe a few questions since I was able to preview the first two episodes of ‘World of Flavor With Big Moe Cason’.

  • How to get backyard BBQ flavor in a city kitchen?

Big Moe: Since most city kitchens only have an oven to use, utilizing Liquid Smoke will add that smoky, grilled flavor to any dish.

  • In South Carolina Soul episode, you talked about the history of slavery and BBQ. What are some changes in original BBQ style and modern BBQ?

Big Moe: The main changes have been in the techniques and equipment used for modern BBQ.

  • How to make a BBQ menu with healthy options?

Big Moe: BBQ itself is healthy, but you can change the types of protein used for lighter fare such as fish and veggies

  • In another episode, you make a handle for a cast iron pan. What to look for in a good cast iron cookware?

Big Moe: Something with weight to it so it can evenly cook your food. A good quality cast iron will last you for years as long as you take care of it.
