PSA: BBQ is a Food

Since it’s almost summer, I felt the need to put this Public Service Announcement out again:

Barbaque (aka: BBQ, Bar-B-Q, Bar-B-Que) is a food (smoked pork butt), not a thing you do (if you’re cooking hot dogs, you’re grilling) despite what wikipedia says.

Here in Orlando, the best place for BBQ is Bubbalou’s Bodacious BBQ. You’ll know a good BBQ place in the south because they’ll use a happy or dancing pig in the logo.

Although I’m from South Carolina, I don’t like my sauce mustard-based. In each Southern State BBQ uses different sauces (unless you’re from Texas and you don’t eat the pig, you eat the cow)!

This video explains it better than I can.

Make your own pulled pork the Alton Brown way:

Or join the Facebook GroupĀ Barbecue Is Something You Eat, Not Something You Do.

But please,if you use a grill you are grilling. If you’re eating smoked pork, now you may use the term barbaque.

    I still remember going there with you guys and eating deep fried pickles. I tell everyone that BBQ is a food not a form of cooking, but not everyone up here in Canada get it. How are you guys doing? Have been able to find a job?

    Great to hear from you, Leah! Yeah, that was fun when you came down and we went there. Oh the memories!

    We’re doing okay – pretty stressed though because, no, neither of us have full-time jobs. Our company is doing okay (we have some clients) but, well, let’s just say the current pace is not going to cut it for us.
