Melissa Cookston

Steak by Melissa, Southaven, MS and Memphis Barbecue Co., Horn Lake, MS and Dunwoody, GA

Above and beyond her restaurants or cookbooks, Melissa Cookston is a brand all to herself. A seven-time world barbecue champion, and the first woman pitmaster to be inducted into the Barbecue Hall of Fame, this Mississippi Delta maven is the perfect chef to host a Beard House autumnal barbecue feast, with just the right amount of Southern flair!
