003 – Craig Hartman, BBQ Exchange


10920960_871810669537455_5285912038861935815_nThis is Episode 3! Today we’ll be talking with Chef Craig Hartman, pit master and cook extraordinaire of The Barbecue Exchange located in Gordonsville, Virginia.  Even though he started years ago in fine dining, including establishing the kitchen at The Clifton Inn, and bringing accolades to Fossett’s at Keswick Hall, he’s landed at the smoker and we’re so glad he did. Chef Hartman brings artisanal technique to simple food and explains in the long run, it’s anything but simple. In this episode we talk pig, Puerto Rico, ketchup, bologna, and why there are so many restaurants in Charlottesville. What’s the secret to running a successful restaurant anyway? And is Charlottesville magic? Listen to find out!
