The Original Pitmaster and First ShedHed, Brad Orrison

by in Behind the Scenes, Shows, August 19th, 2013

Shed fans know that Brad Orrison is the mastermind behind The Shed, the mecca for barbecue in southern Mississippi, but what fans might not know is that Hobson wasn’t the original pit master — it was Brad. “Food was always a passion for the family,” Brad recently told FN Dish. “During my college years I opened both a pizzeria and sushi joint. But what I loved the most was the aspect of barbecue.” From the restaurant’s inception to date, Brad has worn many hats.

Enter for a Chance to Win a Shed Barbecue T-ShirtWhen you walk through The Shed doors for the very first time, you’re in awe. There’s so much hustle and bustle happening around the grounds — from barbecue flying out the kitchen doors and blues music outside on the stage to the First Family of Mississippi Barbecue making you feel as though you’re one of them, it’s a one-of-a-kind experience. Scotty recently told FN Dish, “The first time you walk into The Shed, you’re a stranger. The second time, you’re family.” When customers are in the dining room or at any one of the picnic tables outside, there’s an instant feeling of wanting to be a Shedhed, a term the Orrisons have coined for their customers. Now you can be. You’ll see Brad, Brooke, Momma and Daddy-O sporting Shed shirts (like Coal Miner pictured above), as well as all their staff — each donning a different color, making it their own by cutting it up, drawing on it or tying it into braids.

Seoul Sausage Gives the New Food Truck Teams Advice

by in Shows, August 15th, 2013

Seoul SausageBefore the new season of The Great Food Truck Race begins this Sunday (Aug. 18 at 9pm/8c), FN Dish decided to catch up with last season’s winners — Ted, Yong and Chris from Seoul Sausage — for a quick look back and to find out what they’re up to now.

Since winning The Great Food Truck Race, the team has taken the truck’s concept and turned it into a widely talked about and successful brick and mortar restaurant, also called Seoul Sausage Co. (take a photo tour here). “The food truck scene in L.A. is very competitive, so we’ve primarily put our focus on our brick and-mortar restaurant,” says Ted. “The truck is still on the street two to three times a week. It’s not going anywhere.”

When asked where they see themselves in the future, Yong responded by saying, “We don’t like those questions because we go day by day. All the good things that have happened to us are nothing we’ve planned, even since our inception — our very first event, that wasn’t even planned. We want to have more locations. We want our sausages in stores. We’re enjoying the ride, the journey. We’re just growing the brand and staying true to ourselves at the same time. We can’t thank our fans enough — it means the world to us.”
