Pit Master of BBQ Pastrami

The subject is a pit master of a well-regarded restaurant in Charleston, South Carolina. The day I captured the shot, he was deeply engrossed in the progress of Bar-b--qued pastrami. His concentration showed in his shoulders as he studied the coals and of the pastrami in progress.
