Adam Perry Lang to bring back Serious Barbecue truck to Jimmy Kimmel Live! lot


Remember when grill master Adam Perry Lang decided to create a pop-up barbecue spot in the Jimmy Kimmel Live! parking lot last summer? Lang has announced he’s heading back to the lot for three weeks of billowing smoke and the glorious smell of smoked, grilled meat.

Lang’s Serious Barbecue truck will be ready for service Oct. 7. Last year he brought in a 45-foot flatbed with a BBQ, a chimney and a smoker. This year he’s added a 21-foot outdoor custom-built cooker by Aaron Franklin, chef-owner of Franklin BBQ in Austin.

Lang plans on cooking up his signature beef short rib, prime brisket, rib eye, New York strip steak and more.


The truck will be open to the public for lunch Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. until Oct. 24. Lang will also make free lunch deliveries daily to local charities.

BBQ items are priced at $12 to $42 and it’s cash only.

Lang, who has worked with Mario Batali, Jamie Oliver and opened Daisy May’s BBQ in New York, made barbecue in Kimmel’s lot last summer for two months after long-time friend Kimmel offered up the space behind the studio.

“It’s something I’ve always wanted to do,” Lang told The Times last summer.

Lang has won Grand Champion honors at the World Pork Expo and first place for his pork shoulder at the Kansas City American Royal.
