This Bites: Iron Grate BBQ is Back

Also, why Korean fried chicken is so good, and the types of cuisine we think are missing in Milwaukee.

TGIF! This Bites, which airs Fridays at 8 a.m. on 88Nine Radio Milwaukee, includes lots of good convo fodder every week. This week? DJ Tarik Moody and I talk about the opening of Iron Grate BBQ at its new location. Staples like the Milwaukee rib, pulled pork, brisket, grits and mac and cheese are all back. Yah, and there’s more, too ‒ hush puppies, hickory butter BBQ shrimp, chicken leg quarters. This is a salivating moment on This Bites.

Building on the August issue’s Ask Ann column where I write about what I think the city is missing in terms of dining, Tarik reveals his wish list, which includes traditional Chinese dim sum and authentic Korean BBQ. We finish up the segment with more Korean cuisine ‒ what is Korean fried chicken and why Tarik cares about it so much (I do, too).
