Mastering the Art of the Backyard BBQ
New Orleans Magazine's Cover Story Shares the culinary secrets from the chef of Devil Moon Barbeque
Chef Shannon Bingham of Devil Moon BBQ and Brewery Saint X turns to a Weber Smokey Mountain at home. “It’s pretty rare that I want to spend all day smoking brisket or pulled pork at home, but when I do, the Smokey Mountain is my go-to cooker,” said Bingham. “It maintains heat super well and burns through wood at a slow and efficient rate so I don’t have to spend all day tinkering with a fire box.”

Why NYC renters may be surprised by Mott Haven’s new developments
Brick Underground features Estela as part of Mott Haven's luxury new development buildings.
If you’re like a lot of renters hunting in New York City for a new development with all the bells and whistles, the Bronx is probably not your first choice. It may seem too far from Manhattan or you may think rentals there are primarily older buildings. But new development is taking off in a big way in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx and it may be worth a look. New construction rental buildings have amenities similar to what you would find at luxury buildings (like pools, roof decks, gyms and more), with rents lower than what you find for comparable-sized units in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens.

Mott Haven’s new development surge is a result of two rezonings, followed by developers pouring funds into Mott Haven, once largely an industrial area known for making pianos, among other types of light manufacturing. Now Mott Haven leads the city for new housing units.
