Mike Hedrick was born on the banks of the New River on the North Carolina Coast. He grew up on BBQ and Pulled Pork was some of his first solid food. After years of growing up as a country boy camping and cooking Mike began Grilling and Barbecuing. After years of cooking for family and friend Mike began his ongoing passion to make the best barbecue in the world.

In his first season on the National Barbecue Competition Circuit Mike's Pit Pirate BBQ Team had an amazing Three Top 10's and a 3rd Place Overall Pork at the National Capital Barbecue Battle on Pennsylvania Ave., Washington DC. Mike is now the proud Owner/Chef of Pit Pirate BBQ and does Catering from 50 to 500 and also Concession Sales and is currently looking for a Restaurant location.

 Knowing that serving is more than food Mike organized "Operation BBQ for Our Troops: Walter Reed and collected up donations and and got other BBQ Teams to come and feed 500 of the wounded Soldiers and their Caregivers. When asked by the Assistant Secretary of Defense Health Affairs why he would go to such efforts Mike said “That sir. Seeing the smiles on their faces…the lord says to go and serve, and BBQ is just what I do.”

Mike is currently the Pit Boss and National Spokesman for Pit Crew Barbeque.

Mike Hedrick: Hey guys! Mike Hedrick, Pit Crew Barbeque. We've been having a great time today just going over a lot of great recipes that you can use on any holiday weekend, or any weekend that you're hanging around your house.

Right now, we've gone over a lot, we've done a lot of good cooking, but we still need to get all over our vegetables and that kind of stuff. So I say it's time for some Bloody Marys. One of the best ways to have a Bloody Mary is just to have it complete, get it done, get it going, and just enjoy it.

We're going to go ahead and start off with some UV vodka. I like this vodka, it's clean, I like the way it's distilled. We want to start off with about one-third of icy chilled glass with a piece of celery in there, of our UV vodka. We want to go ahead and get some of our classic Bloody Mary mix here at Pit Crew Barbeque.

It's got 26 ingredients, it's got it all in there. It's a whole days worth of vegetables. We just want to let that kind of just soak up and sip up, and kind of do it sink for little bit and get cold.

Another thing that you can do with the Bloody Mary Mix is I think the original Bloody Marys were actually Blood Mary Mix or the tomato sauce and all, that's kind of different ingredients with beer.

So you can get yourself a nice cool beer, and you want to go ahead and fill up about three-quarters of your glass with your beer. And then, you want to just go ahead and top that off with little bit of your Bloody Mary Mix, kind of change the color in that a little bit, kind of give it a little reason to be kind of summer time happy, and it's going to be all good.

So folks, hope you've had a blast. We went over a lot of different recipes today. The one, what you can do on a Holiday Grilling Weekend, and so now it's time for me to decide which one I'm going to have. Do I go with the Bloody Mary, or do I go with the Red Eye? I think, it's going to be the Bloody Mary for me.
