Kix Brooks is taking a turn from Brooks & Dunn to rare, medium and well-done.
On July 14, Cooking Channel will launch a new series, Steak Out With Kix Brooks, in which the country star travels across America in search of the best steakhouses.
The July 21 episode is scheduled to feature Fort Worth and Dallas (Brooks was in DFW not too long ago for the ACM Awards in Arlington). In Fort Worth, Brooks visits Cattlemen’s Fort Worth Steakhouse. “At Cattleman's in Fort Worth,” the release says, “cowboy cooking is done right with quality meat cooked over an open grill in the middle of the dining room.”
In Dallas, Brooks stops at Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse, where, we’re told, he opts for “some classic Hill Country cuisine like chicken fried lobster.” And naturally, he also stops in at TV-friendly chef John Tesar’s Knife to sample Tesar’s modern-steakhouse offerings.
Brooks launched his quest last year with a special that did well enough to go to series. In the special, he visited Chicago, Louisville and Nashville; it repeats at midnight Friday, 8 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. Monday on Cooking Channel.
Brooks’ itinerary for the debut seasoning — er, season — also includes Denver, New Orleans, New York City, Omaha and Washington, D.C.; looks like he has a long way to go before he covers all the steak territory he needs to cover.
The new season begins at 8 p.m. July 14 on Cooking Channel. The DFW episode is scheduled to air at the same time July 21. If you’re doing the social-media thing with it, use the hashtag #SteakOut. To find out whether your cable or satellite provider carries Cooking Channel, go here.
