80-Foot Smoker Hitting The Rose Bowl Flea Market This Sunday

The Ultimate Smoker

This Sunday, July 8, The History Channel is setting up shop at Pasadena's Rose Bowl Flea Market for the L.A. edition of a national "Cross-Country Cookout" tour, less than two weeks before the L.A. Street Food Fest reprises its annual celebration of sidewalk eating here. Part of a larger U.S. promotion, the network is appearing from 8:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. alongside the world's largest smoker on wheels, an 80-foot-long monster that can slow-cook over one ton of meat at once. The truck's commander, one Trace Arnold (scandalously nicknamed "The Meat Whisperer") will provide free samples of barbecue, including hickory and jalapeno-cheddar sausages prepared in the smoker, to guests, while American Pickers star Danielle Colby will be on hand to offer tours of the flea market.
