Blog Food 52 follows Podnah's Pit chef/owner Rodney Muirhead in the latest installment of its "Supply Chain" series, chronicling a day in the life of Portland's most famous barbecue pitboss. And after Muirhead's daily 5am wake-up call, a recurring theme emerges: Working with a shit-ton of meat. Says Muirhead: "Between the ribs, briskets, and pork butts, we cook about 500 pounds of meat each day." [Food 52 via]
