Dan Nagurney

Years of Participation

Though his official title is People Resource Manager at Charleston Hospitality Group, this Lakewood NY native is very hands on in all of the restaurant group’s kitchens, in particular pork smokehouse central, Queology. Here, he puts a lifetime of experience working in various restaurant venues to work in creating low and slow smoked tidbits of pork, wings, chicken and more. “It’s all about a low temperature and a long, slow cook. And, the right kind of wood,” says Nagurney on one of his favorite subjects, barbecue.
