Roger's on the hunt for lip-smacking barbecue ribs and he found two places where the racks of meat stack up to perfection. One is in the heart of the Mississippi and the other is in New York, that's right, the Big Apple! In Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Leatha's Bar-b-cue Inn seasons their pork and beef ribs with a mysterious marinade, cooks them in an unusual upright smoker, and finishes them with a top secret barbecue sauce. Roger learns how to make these Southern-style ribs from Brian Jackson, a third generation Pit Master who continues the barbecue legacy that his grandmother Leatha created. While the American South has always been the go-to for great barbecue, cities like New York are entering the world of 'cue. At Hometown Bar-B-Que in New York, Brooklyn native Billy Durney gives his ribs an ethnic spin. The Jerk Baby Back Ribs are seasoned with the earthy, spicy flavors of Jamaica, while the Sticky Korean ribs are glossed with a sweet and savory Asian glaze, and then topped with cashews and scallions. It's a finger-licking mash-up of Texas low and slow, Jamaican Grilling and Korean-style barbecue.
