(Seguin) -- Don't forget to set your DVR's for tonight's Cooking Channel episode of Man Fire Food featuring Seguin's very own third generation pit master Adrian Davila of Davila's BBQ. During the television episode, Show Host Roger Mooking will arrive in the Lone Star State to experience a pair of fiery traditions: Texas barbecue and Mexican barbacoa. Davila says he's excited to have been selected for this extensive feature on some of his family's favorite traditions.
"It was a great experience. It's a very complex experience. We've been working with the crew and the production since last November but going back to the pits -- working with them and then literally getting inside of the pits and in all corners of the restaurant to get those great shots of the food and the brisket and the things that are going to be featured on there, that was a really unique experience prepping everything at the ranch and getting everything camera ready. Imagine getting barbecue pits camera ready. I think all of you serious or weekend warriors of the barbecue world can kind of gather how much fun it would be to get a barbecue pit -- the inside out (clean) and everything in between camera ready. So that was quite an experience but definitely worth it," said Davila.

The public is encouraged to set their DVR's so that they not only can watch the show later but they can also come out to a special watch party at the local restaurant. Davila says he invites everyone to come out and catch the show beginning at 8 p.m.

"We'd like people to come to this watch party to enjoy the moment with us. We will be having our regular menu and refreshments and we will be doing $5 Frito pies and $5 of that order of barbacoa tacos (lamb) so people can experience what is on the show. But really, I think for my family -- we see it as another moment for Seguin. Seguin is absolutely dear to our heart. Seguin has made us so when we ask people to come out and enjoy it, we are a family. It's a family restaurant. It's a family operation and we feel that Seguin is our extended family and so we'd like for them to come out and enjoy the moment with us because more than likely, you are going to see parts around town of Seguin that you know -- of course the restaurant and the imagery. It's all about the area. We are featured in the program but we are more proud of the fact that the region of where we come from is featured," said Davila.

The show is just one of several Food Network and Cooking Channel programs that have featured Davila. This latest show comes on the heels of his recent book release of "Cowboy Barbecue: Fire and Smoke from the Original Texas Vaqueros” and his future debut on the Today Show later on this month.

"We are still on the book tour. We just got back from Bogata, Colombia which was wonderful. We cooked at a couple of restaurants there and had a great experience in South America and on June 28, we will be on the Today Show in New York on NBC featuring a recipe from the book and me grilling outside with several other chefs," said Davila.

The watch party event will be held today from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at Davila's BBQ restaurant located at 418 W. Kingsbury. Davila will also be on hand to sign copies of his new book during tonight's watch party.
