FoodWire: Crown Candy Kitchen, Iron Barley & Pappy's Smokehouse on Travel Channel


Tonight the Travel Channel airs the St. Louis episode of Man v. Food. Host Adam Richman takes the "malt milkshake challenge" at Crown Candy Kitchen and also visits Iron Barley and Pappy's Smokehouse. The episode airs tonight at 9 p.m. central.

Assuming everything goes according to plan, I'll be live-blogging the episode as I did when Iron Barley appeared last year on the Food Network's Diners, Dives & Drive-Ins.

Right now the Man v. Food Web site features a video log in which Richman raves -- just flat-out gushes -- about Iron Barley. There's also a slideshow from his visit here.
