San Francisco’s offal-master and burgeoning Food Network star Chris Cosentino is going to grace the small screen tonight on a Barbecue edition of The Best Thing I Ever Ate (Food Network, 9:30 p.m.). He’ll explore the world of grilled meats with with Tyler Florence, Bobby Flay, and Ted Allen. It’s a little strange to see two Bay Area chefs on the lineup but just one Bay Area restaurant (Yank Sing and its Baked BBQ Pork Buns). Still, these guys travel a lot so they’ll surely make their case for the rest of the collection. This is the first in a string of summer television spots for Cosentino. As he reminds us on his blog, the Incanto chef has a series in Chefs Vs. City (premiering in early August), and also shows up on Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations later in the summer. He’s back from all that shooting, according to his twitter stream, hitting up Humphry Slocombe like he lived here.
