  • 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...
  • ‘Generic’ Dad Needed For A BBQ In Hilarious Craigslist Ad

    No barbecue is complete without a dad standing at the grill, flipping burger patties and telling dad jokes. That’s why a group of party planners in Spokane, Washington, put an ad on Craigslist seeking just that. “NEEDED: Generic Father for Backyard BBQ,” reads the ad’s title, which was posted to the volunteer page on the Craigslist site for Spokane. A group of men in their 20s who asked to be identified as “The Boys” will be hosting the barbecue, their representative, Dane Anderson, told HuffPost in an email. At least 50 “boys” will be at the event. As their ad...

    I came across Dr. Maurice Codd’s rib recipe and tried it. Codd was a nobel prize winner in chemistry so I would imagine he understands the chemistry of this better than I do. But the ribs are amazing. Enjoy! I am quite certain that after a long development process I have finally reached the perfection point in pork rib bbq. For years I hated rib recipes that slather ribs with gooey sweet sauce, and I preferred the dry rub ribs. Now, after countless hours in the “lab” I have captured both the crunch and tang of the dry rib, and...
  • 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...

    Members of the Yale College Republicans hosted a barbecue Friday right next to where members of the Local 33 graduate student union participated in a hunger strike, the New Haven Register reports. The College Republicans served a meal of barbecued beef, baked beans and corn to those on the plaza, just a few feet from the tent Local 33 had erected to house hunger strikers protesting the school’s decision not to negotiate a contract. The union chapter said it wants the hunger strike to be a source of joy, and invited others to join in when one of their members...
  • #Free BBQ — Taunt a Hunger Striking Terrorist Today

    img src="http://www.jewishpress.com/wp-content/uploads/BBQ-outside-Ofer-Prison-696x696.jpeg"> Starting at 12 PM today, Thursday, April 20, 2017, “Young National Union” (Ichud Leumi) activists are hosting a FREE BBQ outside the Ofer Prison, on Road 443 just outside of Jerusalem. Grilling the food just outside the prison walls, the delicious smell wafts through the prison… and their intention is to taunt the convicted PA terrorists who are hunger-striking to receive 5-star accommodations and privileges. PA terrorists imprisoned in Israeli jails started a “hunger strike” in protest to Israel’s decision to reduce security prisoner privileges — such as no longer being able to receive FREE (paid for by...
  • Thousands Gather in Remembrance of World War II destruction of Dresden

    Dresden's mayor has used the event to remind participants of the brutalities of war, even in the 21st century. During World War II, Allied forces firebombed the German city of Dresden, leaving 25,000 people dead. Around 12,000 people on Monday gathered in Dresden and joined hands to form a human chain in a message of "peace and reconciliation" marking the anniversary of the deadly firebombing of the city by Allied forces towards the end of the Second World War. The act aimed at reminding the participants of the brutal bombing, considered one of the Allied forces more controversial acts during...

    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...

    Like spicy food? If so, you might live longer, say researchers at the Larner College of Medicine at the University of Vermont, who found that consumption of hot red chili peppers is associated with a 13 percent reduction in total mortality - primarily in deaths due to heart disease or stroke—in a large prospective study. Going back for centuries, peppers and spices have been thought to be beneficial in the treatment of diseases, but only one other study—conducted in China and published in 2015 - has previously examined chili pepper consumption and its association with mortality. This new study corroborates...

    The search for the best combination of: method, rub, glazing sauce, and mop sauce used to achieve baby back perfection has been an arduous but enjoyable task. I think I may have found it this past Labor Day weekend with a new twist on a tried and true formula. Over the years I have used many methods: grilling, smoke boxes, barrel smokers, mesquite charcoal, briquettes with wood chips and pellet smokers. I have used rubs of all types as well as sauces ranging from store bought to home-made, from simple to complex. I thought I had found the right combination...

    The Rauzi realm’s dietary and voting decisions make plain that nuts abound in our nation today — and all of America is descending into anaphylactic shock. It’s funny that liberals try to advance the caricature of the stuffed-shirt conservative. It’s projection, actually, because “killjoy” could be synonymous with “progressive.” From demonizing toy guns to banning dodgeball and sweets to stigmatizing innocent jokes as “racist” to, generally, ensconcing everyone in bubble wrap, never was a rainbow born the libs couldn’t turn gray (except, you know, for the rainbow cause they’re obsessed with). A good example of this is a recent Lost...

    MINNETONKA, Minn. (AP) — “Famous Dave” Anderson has rejoined the struggling barbecue restaurant chain that bears his name. Minnetonka-based Famous Dave’s of America Inc. says Anderson has returned to the company after a reorganization of the board of directors and executive management team. Interim CEO Adam Wright says Anderson will help rebuild the company’s culture and improve the guest experience. Anderson opened his first restaurant in Hayward, Wisconsin, in 1994. He resigned as chairman in 2004 to lead the Bureau of Indian Affairs under President George W. Bush, and later returned to the company as a spokesman. He resigned last...

    A 9-year-old police dog named Rex is ready to retire from the force. That presents a quandary for the Albuquerque, N.M., police department: what to do with a devoted and capable dog whose law enforcement training makes it a challenge to find him a new home? In announcing Rex's retirement Monday, the department also outlined a sad story. The dog's handler recently retired from the force — and though the two have emotionally bonded, the officer couldn't take his work partner home because he has a small child.
  • 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...

    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.
  • Recreated Pit Roast Offers a Taste of Stone Age Life [BBQ in ancient Cyprus]

    Before there was pottery in Cyprus, there was barbecue. And in the spirit of the Stone Age, archaeologists on the Mediterranean island recreated a prehistoric pit feast this summer — feeding 200 people with pig and goat, slow-roasted underground — to test the cooking methods of Neolithic chefs. A 9,000-year-old barbecue pit was recently discovered at Prastio Mesorotsos, a site in the Diarizos Valley outside of Paphos, which has been almost continuously occupied from the Neolithic era to the present. It took three years of excavations before archaeologists from the University of Edinburgh got to the bottom of the stone-lined,...
