Richard McCallister of Marksbury Farm Market invites Roger to his annual spring celebration in Lancaster, Kentucky. Richard and Roger season a flock of spring chickens and cook them in a custom-made outdoor contraption inspired by the grills in Uruguay. Roger contributes a dish to the party: corn on the cob seasoned with coconut oil and an exotic blend of spices. Richard's friend Jim Budros insists on preparing Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler for dessert and transports his 2000 pound wood-burning oven straight from Ohio.
