DAVE GROHL Is Cooking Up Barbecue This Weekend In Los Angeles

According to The Pulse Of Radio, FOO FIGHTERS frontman Dave Grohl served as a cook this past weekend at the Beached Pig, a barbecue joint in the Studio City area of Los Angeles. The newly opened eatery is part of the Valley Urban Market, an outdoor food court co-founded by Grohl's wife Jordyn.

Dave was stationed at the smoker all day, running meat to and from the food truck that was doling out pulled pork sandwiches and tacos, and even making a run to the supermarket down the street to pick up tortillas in the early afternoon.

Dave revealed that he has been obsessed with cooking barbecue style ever since he was in NIRVANA, explaining: "When NIRVANA became popular, the first thing I did is I bought a beach house in North Carolina and spent years up there, and I just ate pulled pork like fucking crazy from the time I was 22 to about 25 years old."

When asked the secret to great barbecue is, Dave joked: "I'm not gonna fucking tell you that," before admitting, "I think one mistake a lot of people make is that they just over season their stuff. Pork loves salt. Salt loves pork. You get nice salt on a good piece of pork and let the smoke hit it right and then it's fucking delicious."

Dave will be on smoker duty again this Saturday (September 29), before heading back out on tour with the FOO FIGHTERS — where he's likely to cook up some burgers backstage at Cal Jam on October 6.
