  • Today, we have special guest host Steve from Asian Boss

  • who is going to sit down with 4 North Korean refugees

  • who escaped from the totalitarian North and now reside in South Korea.

  • Not only are they going to try American bbq for the first time,

  • but we'll also hear about their stories

  • from their time living in the North,

  • where only the very privileged can regularly eat meat.

  • Now, we didn't want to give them anything less than the real deal,

  • so we found a highly qualified pitmaster in Gus Flores.

  • Gus is originally from Guam and runs Sweet Oak in Wonju, South Korea,

  • which is about an hour and a half outside of Seoul.

  • He is a classically-trained chef

  • who has learned how to barbecue from celebrity pitmasters

  • Harry Soo,

  • Myron Mixon

  • and also the late Konrad Haskins of the bbq Institute of Texas.

  • If there's anyone on this side of the world

  • who could give them a taste of real American barbecue,

  • it would be Gus.

  • But don't just take our word for it,

  • 12 Bones from Asheville, NC flew over for this video

  • and they had a few nice things to say as well:

  • Listen, what Gus is doing

  • Would be very successful in the United States.

  • We heard a lot of good things about him

  • and he was even more than we expected.

  • You can tell he knows what he's doing,

  • he's takena lot of time to learn all the nuances of bbq.

  • He's really passionate, cares about what he's doing.

  • and the product that he's putting out.

  • He's phenomenal.

  • You can just tell that he and his wife both are

  • putting their heart into it.

  • I mean, some of the best brisket I've ever had.

  • He's the real deal.

  • He's a top-notch guy, no question

  • Korea is lucky to have him, for sure.

  • Since we couldn't fly them out to each region

  • to try all the different styles of bbq,

  • the next best thing we could do was to have them try

  • the best sauces from the most respected regions.

  • So, after doing some research,

  • we reached out to several places

  • and asked them to come on board for this project.

  • We have Gates from Kansas City, Missouri

  • Rudy's from Texas

  • LawLers from Alabama

  • And 12 Bones from Asheville, North Carolina.

  • Sorry Memphis,

  • we tried our best, but no one was interested.

  • Now, let's get to the food.

Today, we have special guest host Steve from Asian Boss
