Chris “Crash” Hethcox is a bold man with an equally bold nickname.  Known by everyone as Crash, he takes a similar approach to his career in cooking- going all in with force and bravado.  His energetic and determined spirit has brought him many honorable awards throughout the years such as being named “Top 10 Places to Eat in TN” (Deep South Magazine), awarded “Late Night King of Memphis” (Last Call Food Brawl), numerous trophies in national BBQ cook-offs, and has been featured in Southern Living magazine and appeared on BBC America’s “Chef Race: UK vs U.S.” and Larry Csonka’s  “North to Alaska”.  Crash’s cuisine is heavily rooted in southern classics, and he prides himself as a mean Pitmaster with serious BBQ skills.  Keep listening to find out what 5 spices are an absolute must for any cook, where to find the best Thai food in Houston, and get a “Crash” course on what it takes to make it in the chef world.
