Texas native (and legendary rapper) Bun B is no stranger to the pit, which he chose to demonstrate today by participating in the Houston Rodeo’s World Championship Barbeque cook-off.  A local news crew went down to check out his BBQ technique, with predictably endearing results. No word yet on how he fared in the contest, but as Bun was quick to note, this was not his first cook-off.

Watch the video for a quick tutorial on how to grill the perfect steak, and also to see Bun B define trill for a skeptical reporter. The news team is here to rep Houston though. Watch to the end of the clip to see one newscaster (awkwardly) spit a few classic bars.
