Kix Brooks knows a thing or two about great steaks, and hes putting that expertise to work on a new Cooking Channel series, Steak Out With Kix Brooks, premiering Tuesday night (July 14) at 9 p.m. ET. On the series, Kix and his crew travel each week to a city known for its culinary scene and visit three select steakhouses, delving into each eaterys history and sampling one of its masterpiece dishes.
Its a show that fits Kix to a T (or maybe a T-bone). “I love cooking and Ive got the outdoor grill going all the time,” says Kix, who raises cattle at his farm outside Nashville. “I really love a good steak, and this show is playing right into that.”
For the premiere episode, Kix checks out steakhouses in the city known for great steaks, Omaha, Neb. One of his stops in Omaha is the historic Johnny’s Cafe, a family-run business that was founded in the 1920s. “A lot of these places that we went to are like virtual museums,” Kix says. Subsequent episodes for the six-week series feature steakhouses in Dallas/Fort Worth, Denver, New Orleans, Washington, D.C., and New York City.
The first season has been completed and Kix is hoping for a second helping. “We just had a ball eating and playing and filming,” Kix tells NASH Country Weekly. “We have one season under our belts, so well see what happens from here.”
