Storm season. We’ve all been through it. Every year in Oklahoma. This account linked below describes the recent Joplin tornado. Amazing, heroic and sad.
“That’s what I witnessed. That’s what I saw. I mean, people only know about a third of the story. It’s not about just chasing, it’s about helping and saving people. What I witnessed here in Joplin is unimaginable.”
Here’s the latest episode, and the second, in our Open Flame series featuring Dave Cathey as host of a local grilling showcase.
We tape at the American Propane Cabana, which if you haven’t been there, you should. And you should be very jealous. High-end grills under a cabana with a flat screen.
What more does a guy need?
So we shot this a couple weeks ago. The first episode had three chefs. This time we added two more guys at the grills and additional segments with Jim Grigsby, owner at American Propane.
Chefs included Ryan Parrott from Iguana Grill and Table One, DeLancey Miller who supplied the fish, Kevin Lee from downtown’s Burger Rush (he’s looking to expand into other areas, stay tuned) and Luke Fry from A Good Egg Dining and Republic Gastropub.
We shot this with two Canon 7D cameras, but also added some entertainment features during the taping. We used component cables from a JVC cam to Jim’s flat screen so those attending (about 30-40) could watch up close from their seats. We also used our wireless mics in our PA system for additional sound. The highway is right next to American Propane, although Luke Fry doesn’t have a problem cutting over that noise.
Needless to say, the food was amazing. Great grilling action by all. We have four more episodes to go, one each month of the summer.
I think we all were glued to the radar images Tuesday. Here’s a time lapse as the storms pushed through Oklahoma from 3 pm to 10 pm.
