24 Hours with a BBQ Pit Maestro

By: Mando Rayo

In this episode, we spend 24-hours with Houston-based pitmaster Eduardo Ortiz (and his tortilla pressing mother!) to learn his process for creating some of Houston’s best-smoked carne. As we follow his masterful smoking process, we’ll learn how he learned his trade, how Eddie O’s first pop-ups were received, and what it takes to be Texas pitmaster in the clutch city, Houston, Texas.
