      You should do somethings burning. And then you should do hot ones. Brads sense of humour is universal.

    I went to SC for a wedding. And ended up eating there 3 days in row. My favorite thing was seeing how hard Rodney and crew were working but also how happy he was doing it.
    Whole hog family dinner and the catfish was ridiculous. If you go there wear loose fitting pants. It's hard not to over eat

    Long live the king 👑 👌✌

    This episode made me more hungry than any other it’s alive episode I wanted to eat that rib so bad. And rodney is probably the best guest we’ve seen. He has a similar weird sense of humor as brad and he obviously is so passionate about food.
