You haven’t seen Southern barbeque done right until you watch Patrick and Gina Neely’s Food Network show, Down Home with the Neelys. Follow Productions stopped into the Neely’s famed flagship restaurant, Neely’s Bar-B-Que, to do a short feature on the Neelys cooking up some of their signature barbeque sauce for Bobby and Jamie Deen, but producers were quickly impressed by their charisma, personality, and the Neelys’ authenticity in front of the camera. Celebrity Chef Speakers Patrick and Gina soon found themselves with a television deal in their lap, and almost overnight the humble Southerners became stars of one of Food Networks most highly rated shows.
The Neely’s first cookbook, Down Home with the Neelys, quickly climbed its way the New York Times bestsellers list, where it stayed for several weeks. From appearing on the Rachael Ray Show, The View, and Good Morning America to features in USA Today, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, and People Magazine, Patrick and Gina, and their recipes, are highly sought after. In 2009, the high school sweethearts partnered with Kraft to support Huddle to Fight Hunger campaign; they also champion many other charitable causes like the Martin Luther King, Jr. Basketball Tournament and sponsoring over twenty local youth to attend NBA Memphis Grizzlies basketball games.
The success of their original show and cookbook led to a national tour and two more additional series called Neelys Live! and Road Tasted with the Neelys, and the duo are frequent guests on other Food Network shows hosted by Bobby Flay and Paula Deen. Their family business continues to thrive, as they have expanded Neely’s Bar-B-Que to include another Tennessee location and Neely’s Barbeque Parlor in New York City. Though for the most part they work together, Patrick and Gina do have several of their own projects; Patrick is a member of the Shelby Farms Conservancy Board, while Gina belongs to the PTSA, the Memphis Restaurant Association, and the hospitality team at her church.
