Southern boy at heart, Chef Shane McBride, secured his first kitchen job at the age of 18 and began home cookin’ as a young man to rescue his mother’s unsuccessful meatloaf dinners.

At age 19, he secured his first job in a professional kitchen at Narcissus in West Palm Beach, where he worked his way up from garde marger to sous chef.

His first mentor, chef Todd Jent, helped instill Shane’s career-long desire to constantly strive higher and seek out new challenges.

This drive, along with knowledge of classic French cooking techniques and a love of simple, straightforward flavors, led McBride into a roster of the most prestigious restaurant kitchens in the country, including Aureole with chef Charlie Palmer, the Four Star Lespinasse with chef Christian Delouvrier, Craftsteak and Colichhio & Sons with chef/owner Tom Colicchio then went on to run the show at Keith McNally’s bustling New York Balthazar restaurant group

Again, out of necessity, McBride started a competition barbeque team, Ribdiculous Bar-B-Krewe, to satisfy his craving for some real smoky Southern barbeque in the Big Apple.

He sunk his teeth into the project bringing together his closest Chef buddies, purchasing a competition smoker and rotisserie, practicing on weekends and spending his valuable vacation time at competitions, such as Memphis in May, where the Ribdiculous Bar-B-Krewe has won First Place in several categories

This BBQ obsession led to Shane joining the Pig Beach team in 2015 and helping to grow the brand to where it is today.
