BBQ's Trinity

This show celebrates the holy BBQ trinity of barbecue: pork ribs, brisket, and pulled pork. America's favorite ribs-baby backs-come spice-rubbed, slow-smoked over hardwood, and glazed with an unexpected ingredient: cherry syrup. Beef brisket and baked beans star in crispy grilled tostadas. An amazing BBQ titans' brisket takes its inspiration from barbecue legends Aaron Franklin of Franklin Barbecue and Joe Carroll of Fette Sau, and yes, there's espresso in the barbecue sauce. Finally, pulled pork gets its passport stamped-marinated in an umami-rich Korean chili paste called gochujang, then smoked, shredded and lavished with a spicy Korean barbecue sauce. Cherry-glazed baby backs; Crispy brisket bean tostadas; BBQ titans' brisket with espresso barbecue sauce; Korean pulled pork with KB BBQ sauce.
