  • What kind of table surface do I set my charcoal grill on?

    I bought a portable charcoal grill and have yet to use it. Amazon used to sell it. They called it the Volcano Grills 3-Fuel Portable Camping Stove/ Fire Pit. https://www.amazon.com/Volcano-Grills-3-Fuel-Portable-Camping/dp/B000FDKXN6/ref=pd_rhf_se_p_img_7?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=BEAS5KJCCASC1P6K82BV I don't want to set it on the ground as I tend to it. Fun at campsite, but I want to give my squatting muscles a rest. So I was wondering what kind of table I should set it on. I have a Cabela camp kitchen, but the surface is melamine and they show a propane stove in the picture. I have used hibachis at parks and the picnic tables...
  • Why Is Brooklyn Barbecue Taking Over the World?

    Brooklyn BBQ is spreading to every corner of the world—Colombia, Spain, Panama, Sweden, England, and Japan—looking like it came straight out of Williamsburg. But why aren't these countries taking cues from Texas or Kansas City? After sitting down at the restaurant Pork in Barcelona, a long menu describing different preparations of pork is set before me. There is charcuterie made from Iberian pigs, various types of dry-aged sausages and chorizos, and slow cooked and grilled pork. Everything is sold by weight. There are also hanging Edison bulbs and the beer, brewed in conjunction with a cult brewer in Liverpool, is...
  • Yale's College Republicans hold BBQ near a hunger strike to increase protesters' anguish

    Most union-busting techniques are explicit, like legal challenges and anti-union campaigning. But when all else fails, go for the gut. Yale University's local College Republicans chapter held a barbecue on Friday near the fasting site of campus union organizers participating in a hunger strike directed against the university. Bragging about the wafting, delicious smells on Facebook, it appears to have been a move to torment the fasting grad students, who have thus far gone days without food in a protest for their worker's rights struggle. "It'll taste (and smell) delicious!" the event description said on Facebook. The tactic drew comparisons...
  • Armed Robber Gets Smoked Trying to Rob Texas BBQ Joint

    Two armed robbers apparently targeted the senior citizen owner of J&S Bar-B-Que Saturday night, thinking that the man would be an easy target as he walked to his car after closing. They figured wrong. The 70-year-owner of a Houston barbecue joint shot and killed a man who tried to rob him over the weekend. Police said the man had just closed up J&S Bar-B-Que in northeast Houston on Saturday night and was walking to his car, KTRK-TV reports. The man, whom police did not identify, was carrying a gun because he’d been robbed before, he told police. So when two...

    My office is holding its annual Summer Barbecue in a couple of weeks. Calling it a 'barbecue' is a bit extravagant, as all we do is cook hot dogs and hamburgers on a propane grill ;-) and the stars of the show are usually the wonderful side dishes that folks from many different ethnic cuisines bring to the party. This year it will be a much smaller affair, with our 'grill master' out on knee-replacement surgery, other staff leaving for new jobs, and lots of folks away for Summer. But I have to come up with a side dish! I...
  • Aztecs Cooked, Skinned, Ate Humans (Barbequed long pig)

    New finds from an archaeological site near Mexico City support certain written and pictorial evidence concerning Aztec human sacrifice that historians previously doubted because the accounts seemed too exaggerated to be true. The discovery adds to the growing collection of evidence supporting human sacrifice and cannibalism among the founders of the Mexican empire. It also suggests that researchers might now be able to verify some 16th century Spanish accounts on the subject. The Spanish and the Aztecs documented at least four observations of cannibalism in the 16th and 17th centuries. Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés (1485-1547), whose men conquered the Aztecs...

    July Fourth is a celebration of outdoor cooking, as well as our nation's birthday. It's time to brush off the barbecue and throw masses of processed meat on the grill. As we all stand around waiting for the fire to die down so that we can make s'mores, it's also a time to ponder the notion that the barbecue is a ritual 700,000 years old or more, and it might have something to do with our big brains.

    Some pre-Hispanic cultures in South America had elaborate celebrations at their cemeteries, complete with feasting and drinking grounds much like modern barbecue pits, according to a new archaeological study. Excavations of 12th- and-13th-century burial mounds in the highlands of Brazil and Argentina revealed numerous earthen ovens. The finds suggest that the graves were also sites of regular festivals held to commemorate the death of the community's chief.

    The US is in the midst of a barbecue boom. But as television programmes and restaurants celebrate mostly white pitmasters, are the cuisine's African-American roots being forgotten?... ...the Brantleys have enjoyed a great deal of success with their traditional St Louis-style barbecue. There are lines out the door, as well as accolades from both local and national media... But things aren't as good as they used to be. Daryle once had three locations and sold the sauce bottled at local supermarkets - today he only has the original shopfront. The decline happened as factory jobs left St Louis and the...

    This baby girl from Nebraska can’t stop fawning over her new friend. The tot’s mom, identified only as Ann Maree by KETV 7 in Omaha, shared the completely en-deer-ing video of her daughter, Kate, sweetly chasing a young deer in their backyard on Sunday. “Our neighbor pointed out the fawn to us, it was in the backyard,” Ann Maree told the TV station. “My daughter who is 15 months, decided to walk toward it.”

    On this Independence Day, one of the sadder aspects of American life we have to consider is the tendency of some Americans to wag their fingers at others about the way they choose to live, sometimes with disastrous results. The temperance movement of the 19th Century led to Prohibition which led to Al Capone, for example. Now someone writing in the New Republic on Friday wants to take away our right to barbecue.

    Texans argue about a lot of things, including political issues such as education, healthcare and, of course, illegal immigration. But nothing gets the denizens of the Lone Star State exercised more, with the possible exception of football, than barbecue, more specifically the wet rub vs. dry rub question. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott recently came down on the wet rub side of the controversy. The San Antonio Current pretty much proposed revoking the governor’s Texas citizenship for this heresy. “Everyone knows” that real barbecue does not need sauce. It is all in the smoking technique.

    Nothing says America quite like smoking a pork butt and flying Old Glory. “The sport of professional barbecue is extremely American and family oriented,” said pitmaster Jeff Petkevicius. So you can imagine Jeff’s extreme displeasure when organizers of an Alabama barbecue competition ordered him – along with other competitors to take down the American flags hanging from their barbecue trailers.

    In the 19th century, the French declared the mother sauces. Bechamel, veloute, espagnole, tomate, and hollandaise all became the bases for other sauces in classical French cuisine. Barbecue sauce is sort of the same deal. Key ingredients such as vinegar, tomato and mustard have all come to define regional barbecue in the United States. While sauce on its own is never enough to save bad barbecue, it can perfectly complement the flavors of good barbecue, giving it an identity and elevating it to greatness. So, what are the "mother sauces" of barbecue?

    The new BBQ map might seem like propaganda to some and truth to others (Texas Monthly) There’s a new map and website on the Internet showing the best 50 BBQ joints. And they’re all in Texas. Of course, the list—compiled annually since 2008—was done by a Lone Star state publication, Texas Monthly. Editor Jake Silverstein told Yahoo News by phone that he’s ready to "declare war" on all famous BBQ regions, including Kansas City, North Carolina and Memphis. "It's a declaration of supremacy. Our level of authority on BBQ is completely unmatched," he said, noting they were partly having fun...
