Washington isn’t known as a barbecue town, but DCity Smokehouse is changing that perception. The popular Truxton Circle ‘cue spot will make its Fox 5 debut on Tuesday during a segment on the Ice & Coco talk show, starring Ice-T and wife Coco Austin.
Pitmaster Rob Sonderman and chef Shawn McWhirter debut at noon, engaging in a BBQ Throwdown against smokehouses in Phoenix and Atlanta. Their aspiring prize-winning dish: the Meaty Palmer sandwich, stacked with smoked turkey, pork belly, tomato and avocado, and sauce with chipotle-aioli and cilantro-ranch. The sandwich looks tougher to crack than an SVU investigation based on Ice’s expression—we can vouch that it’s well worth the effort.
Tune in to FOX 5 DC on Tuesday at noon to catch the local competitors.
