Adam Perry Lang
2013 Barbecue Hall of Fame Inductee
Each year, three individuals are recognized by the The American Royal Association for their significant contributions to the barbecue community and demonstration of achievement in barbecue excellence. The Barbecue Hall of Fame inductees are honored for their contributions in one of three categories: Pitmaster and Business/Industry, as well as the Celebrity/Humanitarian Category … this year awarded to Adam Perry Lang.
Adam Perry Lang, a “meat maestro,” has barbecue and grilling experience from the backyard barbecue grill to the professional kitchen. In the culinary industry, Adam is widely known as the man who masters the art of cooking over fire. According to famed chef, restaurateur, and beloved Iron Chef America celebrity Mario Batali, Adam is his “go-to-brother for meat and fire.”
Adam is serious about expanding the realms of barbecue and sharing his passion with the world, as evidenced from his best-selling books Serious Barbecue, BBQ 25 and Charred and Scruffed.
He recently moved to Southern California and introduced the Los Angeles community to his signature style of outdoor cooking at the Back Lot BBQ in the heart of Hollywood. In addition to serving up barbecue to sold-out crowds on the back lot of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Adam and his team gave back to the community by donating 25% of the food after each lunch service, serving over 1,000 meals each week to local charities such as P.A.T.H. and L.A.C.E.R and volunteering at the LA Mission. As Adam establishes more culinary ventures, he remains dedicated to helping those in need wherever his barbecue adventures take him.
