The Secrets to What’s Smoking Soon in Tunica!

 The Secrets to What’s Smoking Soon in Tunica!

Food Network celebrities, Memphis legends, and owners of Neely’s BBQ, Pat and Gina Neely, will be burning up the Harrah’s Tunica stage September 18th giving the crowd a delicious dose of entertainment and the secrets behind their recipes for a happy home and red hot kitchen.

Travel Tunica got to go to the dress rehearsal for the show recently, and after the rehearsal, we sat down with the Neelys to get them to dish on what makes their show and BBQ a success.

The Neelys said they’ve been working for several months getting ready for the show, and Tunica is the premiere of their tour.

“Because of Gordon Elliott’s vision, we are taking a regular cooking demonstration to another level,” Gina Neely explained.  “This show is going to be so great.”

“And you have to understand that Gina and I do a lot of shows, but this is the first time we are doing Neelys Live, and we wanted to kick it off here at home,” Pat Neely said.  “We are going to blend our delicious down home dishes with fresh, hot rhythm and blues live, like a three course dinner with a seven piece band.  It will be food for the soul, laughter for the heart, and music for the ears.”

Since the Neelys are known for having fun while cooking, they will be bringing a game show element to the show making it interactive and entertaining for the audience.

They are also known for bringing their loving relationship in the kitchen, so when we asked them for their number one BBQ secret, the answer was simple.

“Cook it slow with love like your marriage should be,” Gina Neely said.

“And the number one utensil in the kitchen is the spatula for more reason than one,” Pat Neely added, while laughing.
