The Big Green Egg debuts on Netflix series ‘Ugly Delicious’
14th May 2018
Lovers of binge-worthy reality shows and delicious food will likely have come across the new Netflix series ‘Ugly Delicious’, featuring Chef David Chang of Momofuku and food writer Peter Meehan. The fifth episode of the series, titled ‘BBQ’, explores different food over flame customs, culminating in a Korean and American barbecue fusion barbecue prepared by Chang using a Big Green Egg.
The barbecue episode is very accurately summarised in EATER’s Recap: ‘[It] revolves around the idea that something magical happens when meat is cooked with live fire and smoke — whether it’s Peking duck, Texas-style brisket, or Korean short ribs.’
Throughout ‘BBQ’, world-class Chef Chang travels from Lawndale, California where he shows off some of his new dishes, to Parks BBQ in LA’s Koreatown for a discussion of Korean barbecue’s transition into “modern-day eating.”
From then, Chang’s journey takes him across the globe to Copenhagen for a Noma barbecue featuring delicate veggies, and onwards to Beijing for a taste of authentic regal Peking duck and a yakitori meal at Masakichi, Tokyo.
The show concludes with Chang back in his LA home, using an American-style technique to prepare a Korean-style barbecue in his Big Green Egg, which is then enjoyed by Choe, Yuen, Lang, and late-night host Jimmy Kimmel.
