What a stupid question. I barbecued some hot dogs and burgers just the other day, even threw on some shish ka bobs for good measure.

I don't understand how those mouthbreathing, wood-burning, Mountain Dew guzzling Texans or North Carolinians can call what they do BBQ. If it didn't come from a gas grill, just feed it to the dogs.

Hate to tell you but lots of inter-generational activities are dying. Sailing, incest...lots of them.

vudukungfu: Litterally have turned down marriages to three wealthy women who thought they could cook but were actually savants at poisoning.

Would have drunk the tea.

Saying "take notes, PocketNinja" after attempting to type something humorous is like telling Stephen Hawking to shut up so you can tell him about gravity.

That's referred to as grilling. Barbeque is slow cooking by indirect heat.

Holy crap, where do these people come from?

Never been to a place that has decent sole slaw

Do you know how difficult it is to make decent slaw using shoe parts and fish?

Instructions for Yankees seeking BBQ.
Drive in a southerly direction until the peole outnumber the trees, and keep going until you see crosses everywhure. Get out of the car just past the 10000th Baptist church you pass, and look around. See all those huge fat asses? That means you are getting warmer. Now sniff the air.
Do you smell it?
Right. Look for signs on churches advertizing BBQ supper. Bonus if its an old worn, and often used sign.
If you show up and find out you're at a Black Church, and you are white, just tell them you are the Sterns.
If you show up at a White Church and you are black, RUN!

I hope a lot of people decide that barbeque is dying. Sell me your slightly used Big Green Eggs cheaply.

I'd go for 10/10 if you said you insisted on using a gas-powered hibachi.

Texas is the Holy Land of BBQ. Every true believer should make a pilgrimage.

This is why it's important to reject sin in all forms, including things like putting tomato on barbeque. Boars even SMELL like vinegar, so that we may know Eastern Carolina Barbeque is the will of God.
