It's Culinary War!

Two pitmaster legends. Two unique styles. One ultimate collaboration. 

Nothing is more different  than eastern barbecue and western barbecue. That’s why two legendary pitmasters, Pat Martin and Sam Jones, are bringing their world famous cooking styles to the 2018 Savannah Food and Wine Festival (November 5-11) for the ultimate pitmaster collaboration. Each pitmaster will prepare a whole hog in their own styles, along with a variety of their own signature sides. Get ready to pig-out!

West: Pat Martin

Featured on the Food Network, Travel Channel, Cooking Channel, and the Today Show—to name a few—Pat Martin has established himself as a staple in the western barbecue community. His passion for the art and craft of the endangered West Tennessee-style of smoke and meat proves his dedication.

East: Sam Jones

A third generation whole hog barbecuer, and named one of the “Top Ten Pitmasters of the South” by “Southern Living,” Sam Jones has stayed true to his roots and wood-cooked Eastern North Carolina style.
