Texas Monthly barbecue editor Daniel Vaughn’s ‘Smokelandia’ pilot airs Wednesday

Tireless Texas Monthly barbecue editor Daniel Vaughn, he of the hollow leg, will appear in the pilot episode of “Smokelandia” Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. on the Cooking Channel.

The TV listing Tweeted by Vaughn tips off that the show will feature pork belly from Connecticut (!), whole hog cooking with Sam Jones in North Carolina and hot links in Southeast Texas. Regarding that last tidbit, the Beaumont Enterprise reports that the Southeast Texas spot will is Patillo’s Bar-B-Q.

“It’s a barbecue show about barbecue. The process will be just as important as what ends up on the plate or the butcher paper-lined tray,” Vaughn told me via text message.

As for what else we can expect from the show going forward, Vaugn’s Tweet indicates that this is just a pilot and a full run of the show may be dependent on how many eyeballs the initial show gets.
