Locales Only : Winnie Yee The Smoke Queen Tells Us The Secrets To Killer BBQ


This week on Locales Only we pick up Winnie Yee, Orange County's newest BBQ smoke queen. You might have seen her on the Kelly Clarkson Show or have been by her incredible local restaurant Smoke Queen in Garden Grove for a fresh plate of brisket or two.

We’re going to talk to about how she got her start with nothing but a Costco smoker and Facebook Marketplace, the secrets to making great BBQ and why imbracing your heritage can make food taste that much better. So buckle up and enjoy the conversation on Locales Only. 

Big thanks to Fletcher-Jones Motorcar of Newport Beach for sponsoring the show and building out the all-electric Mercedes-Benz EQE as our rolling podcast studio! 
Locales Only
There’s so much that makes Southern California one of the best places in the world. That’s why, for almost a decade, the founder of Locale magazine, Eric Hale, has been showcasing the people, places, restaurants, and events that give SoCal its reputation. Now he’s taking his show on the road, literally, in a brand new Mercedes-Benz EQE courtesy of Fletcher Jones Motorcars in Newport Beach as the rolling podcast studio. You’ll get a taste of what it feels like to go on a cruise with some of the biggest names in California. Think actors, musicians, award-winning chefs, business leaders, and locals who have built so much of the California coastline. So buckle up, turn your volume up, and let’s cruise with Locales Only.
