World barbecue champ Charlie McKenna's oven-to-grill ribs

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:07 pm on 15 February 2019

You might guess a world barbecue champion would be an Aussie or a Kiwi, but Charlie McKenna is all-American.

Before opening his Lillie's Q restaurants in Chicago and Florida, McKenna trained at the prestigious Culinary Institute of America in New York.

He's in New Zealand to judge the Auckland BBQ festival Meatstock.

He joins Jesse Mulligan in studio to talk all thing barbecue and share a recipe for baby back ribs
