Dr BBQ Ray Lampe Shares His ‘Can’t Miss’ Food Experiences In Tampa, Florida

Welcome to EAT THIS CITY, your tour of the best restaurants in one of our favorite cities, as chosen by a world-class chef.

This week, join us in Tampa, Florida, where we’re meeting up with Ray Lampe, aka, Dr BBQ. If there’s anyone who deserves a doctorate in barbecue, it’s Ray — who spent fifteen years perfecting and “pitting” his recipes against competitors on the path to becoming a professional, world-renowned pit master. A favorite judge on Chopped, World Food Championships, and American Grilled, he was inducted into the Barbecue Hall of Fame in 2014. But he’s only just getting fired up! Dr. BBQ’s opens in St. Petersburg’s Edge District in 2017.
