Fette Sau's Dry Rub Recipe

Fette Sau in Williamsburg, Brooklyn was one of the first BBQ joints in the US to feature exclusively heritage breeds on their menu. For nearly 20 years they have offered Berkshire, Red Wattle, Tamworth, and Duroc Boston Butt, Belly, Bacon Ends, and Ribs and have been an anchor to Heritage Foods! Owner Joe Carroll explains in his cookbook Feeding the Fire "We use this rub on just about everything that we smoke at the restaurant, but you needn't follow the recipe exactly. Feel free to improvise on the ingredients and amounts, reducing the sugar for a less-sweet bark (crust), increasing the cayenne for a spicier one, and so one."

Bourbon Pineapple Glazed Ham

Lifelong New Yorker, Brooklyn born and bred, Neil Kleinberg of Clinton St Baking Co raised himself in a crazy kitchen in Flatbush, among a boisterous clan of siblings and neighboring cousins, uncles and aunts. At 10 years old, he became a one-boy culinary wonder who’d do anything to avoid his mother’s “famous” dish: chicken in a pot. Neil opened his first restaurant, Simon’s in Lincoln Center, at just 22 and in 1997 re-opened the legendary seafood restaurant, Lundy’s, in his native Brooklyn.

Lamb Rack sliced into chops

Garlic Crusted Rack of Lamb + Caramelized Potatoes + Mint, Fennel Frond & Cilantro Chutney

With any great showpiece, if the meat is good, what you add should complement or enhance the flavor, not overpower it. I find garlic is classic, and I always have fennel and coriander seeds lying around because they are so versatile, while black pepper adds just enough heat. The time it takes the lamb to roast is perfect for roasted and melty potatoes, but those potatoes are even better when married with onions and fennel. And, yes, mint may seem cliched, but its freshness complements lamb so well. Transformed with acid, more herbs and some olive oil, to me, the only limit is the limitations you set on yourself.
