Backyard Restaurant at Solé East Resort, as part of the Montauk Summer Series.

He will share recipes from his Cleveland restaurant Mabel’s BBQ, and favorites from his newest cookbook, “Playing with Fire.”

Guests will receive a complimentary copy of the cookbook and dine on a menu featuring spicy grilled shrimp toast with avocado, Mabel’s pork ribs and brisket, grilled skirt steak tacos with pickled red onions, beer can chicken, grilled corn and tomato salad, broccoli salad, and JW potatoes — Mabel’s style.
