The food scene in New York City lacked a really great rib shack and Celebrity Chef Adam Perry Lang decided to fill the void with his own BBQ hotspot. Daisy May’s BBQ started with a few food carts strategically placed around the city and has grown into a flagship location in Midtown Manhattan. But in the barbecue world, you earn your stripes at annual competitions. In his first year on the competition circuit, Adam cooked his way to Grand Champion honors at the World Pork Expo and won 1st place for his delectable pork shoulder at The World Series of BBQ in Kansas City. Adam has also taken his barbecue methods global, opening up Barbecoa with fellow celebrity chef Jamie Oliver in London.
In 2009, Celebrity Chef Adam Perry Lang released his first cookbook titled Serious Barbecue: Smoke, Char, Baste and Brush Your Way to Great Outdoor Cooking.
