Smoke master Adam Perry Lang is bringing his unique brand of barbecue back to Hollywood, starting tomorrow and running through the end of next week.
Lang is back for a six-day engagement, starting today and running through Thursday, then kicking up again next week, Tuesday through Thursday. Hours are 11 a.m. until about 2:30 p.m. only, but don’t expect the meat to last that long.
What’s more: Lang will be donating profits from this six-day backlot stint straight to L.A. Kitchen, which is pretty remarkable. He’s also got some big names coming in to help cook during the run, including local Bruce Kalman.
The limited menu and pricing sheet is below. And remember, this is the sometimes hard-to-locate backlot behind Kimmel’s studio in Hollywood. You’ll want to enter via the alley on Orange Drive, between Hollywood Boulevard and Hawthorn Ave. The good news: there’s a parking garage right there.
If you know anything of Lang’s work, you’ll know that the barbecue hall of famer has been something of a nomad in recent years, while ostensibly working on bringing a full restaurant to the city. His first big L.A. splash came on Jimmy Kimmel’s back lot a couple of summers ago, wherein Lang spent his days making charcoal himself and sleeping in a trailer nearby, while hosting cooking demonstrations and smoking up some seriously amazing on-bone beef ribs.
More recently, he cooked with Aaron Franklin at a two-day Animal pop-up, and even sported the longest lines of the night at a Wolfgang Puck/Francis Mallman/Lang cooking event at the Hotel Bel-Air in September.
