Consultant enlisted for Southern Hospitality

Justin Timberlake calls in BBQ doctor for NY restaurant
Justin Timberlake is attempting to improve his New York restaurant, namely the barbecue which reports say was 'awful'.

The restaurant have now enlisted the help of Ray Lampe, known in the culinary world as 'Dr. BBQ'.

According to Nymag.com, Lampe is “a competition barbecuer and barbecue consultant known for his balanced, crowd-pleasing style”.

'Dr. BBQ' will be at the restaurant for two weeks a month to make sure the standard is upheld.

Lampe says he wants the ribs “to be competition-style, where when you take a bite the meat comes off easy, but doesn't just slide off the bone. I don't think the guys that were in charge before really got that.”

Rock star visitors to the restaurant have an additional incentive to stop by, in the shape of a Jack Daniels sweet potato pie on the dessert menu.

Timberlake is part-owner in the venture which opened last July.
