These delicious recipes were performed at the Big Green Egg Mothership in Tucker Georgia, by Chef Fred Genovese assisted as usual by Ms. Linda Genovese. The microphone and patter duties were carried out by Kevin Jenkins (Fats) and the technical side was done by Karen Jenkins Kevin's most able wife. Mike Stock (Pappa of Peppers) was absent for this show, he was kicking up his heels at another event and was obviously missed.
