In this Episode I sit with Daniel Weinstock of Maple Block Meat Co in Culver City California.  I first Met Daniel at his beautiful restaurant for a Dinner he was hosting with Author and Chopped Champion Ed Randolph.  They had an incredible feast for a lucky group of BBQ fanatics like myself, it was definitely a memorable night.  Maple Block has been open for 4 yrs now and business is booming.  I dropped in during Lunch Time and the flow of the lunch crowd was smooth and fast paced.  Daniel discovered his love for the Culinary World at a very early age and he worked his way up to a job as a Sous Chef at an elite Restaurant in Beverly Hills.  He went on to College learned the skills that later helped him start his own business!  He's had a visit from Texas Monthly's Daniel Vaughn, he has a recipe in Ed Randolph's book, Smoked and many great articles from several other sources.  He even has a dinner coming up with Phil Rosenthal on August 11th!  They focus on the Craft and are always looking for ways to improve.  While I was there I got a taste of a new Sausage they're trying out using Togarashi Spices, and it was to die for.  I wanted to take a few links home with me! I hope you enjoy this inspiring story.  This is Daniel Winestock of Maple Block!
