Loveless Cafe biscuit recipe

I watched Bobby Flay's Throwdown again last week. Featuring a lady Carol Fay, who is the baker at the Loveless Cafe. She makes the best biscuits.
She's been on Martha Stewart, Conan, Ellen, Fox news and others.
video clips here
No one can get the recipe out of her.
Wonder if anyone else has seen her or has been to the Loveless Cafe outside Bellevue Tennessee by Franklin, outside Nashville.
Her biscuits are supposed to be the softest, moistest,fluffiest and best.
Anyone know what a secret would be?
Maybe she uses cake flour, or self rising flour. Maybe she even tosses in yeast somewhere.
If you know how to make something similar would you mind posting.
TIA...

I saw the episode, was a good one. But, I have no idea how she does it, and no I don't make great biscuits, so I didn't originally respond as I would not be of any help.

well mavericks, it's you and me having this conversation.
thanks for joining me.
I'm almost wondering, since I viewed all the video's, if she doesn't use bisquick. I mean, she could, but then, I'd assume she'd have to give credit to that company. couldn't she just incorporate her own flour and other ingreds to make it look like it was all her own? I think a biscuit mix has the powdered shortening in in along with the powdered eggs too. I duhno..I noticed on all those video's the amount of 'oil' she put in was minimal. usually don't biscuits include a hard fat like butter or crisco? and cold at that? hummmm

well let's see, she's made it several times on tv. but her 'end' proofed dough is always already made and what she uses. Unless on BF's throwdown, she swapped out the dough for already made stuff, that was done right in front of him too. He would have noticed the use of lard right? I mean it's hard and firm, how could you miss it? I only saw her ever dump in liquid oil

thank you UB......................for now, can I do it with King Arthur though? It's all I have until I get to you know where..................

to Suzi, I have no idea. here she is, braggin to everyone about hers are the best, yet, everyone has tried to get it out of her and she won't budge. that's why I'm wondering if in fact, she uses a biscuit mix of some kind. if it was my show, I'd know the difference but again, she may be changing it out, even MS may not have noticed that. you know, in the interest of time,
'this one's' already made a ready to go.................that's the one that may have the fake out stuff in it.....................
