On Jan. 27th, the Travel Channel’s show Man v. Food will be stopping by Raleigh to film a segment at local restaurants. The tour starts in Chapel Hill at Mama Dips, but arrives in Raleigh at The Pit from 6 pm-9 pm, where host Adam Richman will be visiting with local barbecue legend Ed Mitchell to learn some bbq techniques, throw a pig on the fire, and chat with the customers. From there, they’ll head over to the legendary Roast Grill for a hog dog eating competition. Adam will attempt to eat 15 hot dogs, 15 buns, a half pint of mustard, one pint of chili sauce, and three drinks. And then… probably some Pepto.
UPDATE: Was finally able to get the Roast Grill on the phone, and they will actually be before The Pit (which makes a lot more sense, since the Roast Grill is not open at night). The Roast Grill says that they will have a crew there from 7:45 am - 5:00 pm.
