South Carolina blues man (and BBQ fan) Drink Small has a new song out that should be of interest to BBQ fans everywhere. It's called "Living in a Barbecue World". Preview and purchase here at CDBaby.com.
So one of my friends, Lee Petty, comes up to me today and says "Hey congratulations!" Of course I answer "Huh? What?" He says "On the BBQ blog list, you were one of the top 10". To which I again reply, "Huh? What?" Then he tells me about this Twitter tweet which Daniel Vaughn, The BBQ Snob over at Full Custom Gospel BBQ (my hero) re-tweeted from the Texas Monthly BBQ twitter account. Not being much of a tweeter or a tweetee, I, of course, had no clue about any of that. But it seems the nice folks over at Chef2Chef.net listed this humble little BBQ blog as one of "10 Smokin' BBQ blogs" and listed it in the company of some of MY favorite BBQ blogs that I follow and read daily. Thank you Chef2Chef! Here's their article:
I love barbecue. I always wanted to spend some vacation time sampling the best BBQ joints in Texas. A few years ago, my friend Scott and I started doing just that and we've been doing it every year since. We call it the "Calories and Cholesterol Tour". Since so many people were asking me about our experiences, I started writing them up. We are not expert eaters or writers. We just do this for fun and because we LOVE Texas BBQ.
A note about our reviews. We tend to be "stealth" reviewers. We don't ask for pit tours or cooking techniques and we try to be discrete about taking photos til after we are done. We want to experience each meal as an average customer.
If you know a great Texas BBQ joint we need to try, e-mail me at donotemp AT lycos DOT com. CLICK ON THE PHOTOS FOR A LARGER VIEW
I also have a separate bass fishing blog.
