The Texas-based chef is has been nominated for a James Beard award four times and in 2008, won Iron Chef America. Currently, he offers homestyle barbecue at Rathbun's Curbside Barbecue in Dallas. He partnered with New Times to take readers into his home virtually to demonstrate the tips and tricks behind cooking three delicious dishes each unique to a different state: Colorado, Texas, and Florida.
As a tribute to Texas, the chef will cook strip steak with rosemary butter and grilled onion petals.
Rathbun was inspired by Colorado with his recipe for BBQ spiced pecan-cruseted trout with a grilled tomato butter sauce.
Finally, the chef taps into the bright, fresh flavors of Florida with a recipe for habanero, cilantro, and lime-marinated snapper with grilled pineapple and black bean pico de gallo.
