4th Annual Wing King Judge – Chef Scott Schroeder

Although Chef Scott Schroeder has not judged a Wing King event just yet, he knows what to expect when BigBite offers 20 crazy mash-ups of flavors! Chef Scott broke the seal when he judged the 2nd Annual Philly Chili Bowl. We welcome him back to the judging panel!

A native of Detroit, Chef Scott Schroeder trained in his hometown under charcuterie expert and award-winning chef, Brian Polcyn.  After moving to Philadelphia in 1997 Chef Scott cut his teeth in the kitchen of many famed Philly standards like Brasserie Perrier, Passion and Jake’s. In his first ‘Chef’ position at Northern Liberties hot-spot Deuce, Schroeder garnered praise and a two-bell review from Craig Laban. Currently Chef Scott presides over the kitchens at the South Philadelphia Tap Room, another two-bell establishment, and American Sardine Bar where his menus reflect his passion for fresh, local ingredients and cooking from “scratch.”

He is also the Chef/Owner of Scott Dogs, a hot dog cart serving handmade hot dogs made with local pork and beef. During his free time he enjoys long walks on the beach and cooking with his 11-year old son, Luke. Follow his rants and raves on Twitter.

The powerhouse Philly DJ duo, Emynd and Bo Bliz, are the masterminds behind the Record Label/Blog/Clothing Brand Crossfaded Bacon and have been providing Philly with their patented unruly parties like their 1st Friday staple, the Bounce at the Barbary (see the Friday, June 1 flyer here).

Wing King IV Sponsor: Philbilly

It is a great pleasure to have Philly Chili Bowl Sponsor, Philbilly return to be a gracious sponsor of Wing King IV!! (we feel special!)

What is Philbilly you ask? According to the Urban Dictionary a “Philbilly” is a loud, fat, sometimes drug addict thin, stupid, inbred fuck who resides in the neighborhoods of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Usually all family members will reside in nearby houses, i.e mom next door etc. Commonly identifiable by features such as buzzcuts, wife beaters, baggy shorts, tatts, any Eagles clothing, and large wastelines or sunken faces. Often known to use the term ‘yo’ or ‘yeew’ as part of their communications. The men sometimes characterized by a loud bellowing tone, or slow, drug-induced, raspy smokers voice. Usually punctuate the end of most sentences by nonsensical joker-like guffaws.The women a shrill, gossipy, whiny tone. Most shop at their locally based Wawa market where a purchase of cigarettes are customary with each visit.

There may be some “philbillies” at Wing King (no gaurentees), but thankfully, the Philybilly that is sponsoring Wing King IV is not what is described above. Philbilly is a bad-ass local company who produce amazing Philly inspired tee shirts. You can find them at local festivals, shows and parties. Perfect design to rep Philly in a dynamic way. Also a great way to represent yourself if you are a true Philbilly (see description above) at heart!

Check out Philbilly’s tee’s here and follow then on facebook for upcoming designs and events.

Philbilly, thank you for sponsor and attending our last event, the 3rd Annual Philly Chili Bowl!
