There’s a boatload of brisket to smoke on the road to Smoke and Glory, and Seed Kitchen & Bar chef/owner Doug Turbush is going for the glory. Turbush joins other top Atlanta chefs in a head-to-head “Battle of the Beasts” cook-off on Sunday, April 3 from noon-4 p.m. at Steinbeck’s Ale House in Decatur. Each chef receives a raw beef brisket and must follow one rule: smoke the beef. Otherwise, anything goes! While the day starts early for chefs vying for tenderness, doors open to guests, bands start playing and brisket tasting begins at high noon. Judging enters the scene at 3:30 p.m., and the event closes out at 4 p.m. When briskets are polished off, smoke subsides and glory is deemed, two worthy charities will benefit – The Giving Kitchen and the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. Buy tickets at BrownPaperTickets.com; $60 for guests 21 and up, $20 for ages 12-20 years, $10 for kids 5-12 years, and free for the under-five set. Everyone enjoys the full afternoon of live music and food tastings, and guests over age 21 are privy to unlimited beer tastings from craft brewery sponsors. Good luck, Doug!
