Losing My Religion: Anti-que and Legends
I've noticed that there isn't much bbq video to be found out here in cyberspace, so I've decided to start posting a series of bbq-related vids for you all. I haven't seen any other bbq bloggers doing it, so this will hopefully be a weekly thing (at least). Some will be instructional, others will be entertaining, or strange, I guess. Anywho, it's time to bring the 'que to the people and as of today, March 18, 2007, I vow to do so. Without further ado....
Here's a fairly bloodless look at 'barbecuing' chicken from our good friends at Kraft. The only problem is, this aint bbq. And by the time the voiceover mentions the Kraft bbq sauce, my tears start welling up.
And from the ridiculous to the sublime, here is the Legend, Mike Mills talking about the real deal. Having met Mike at the barbecue block party, I can tell you that he's an exceptionally gracious and charming dude who really loves barbecue and he is happy to show it. He grabbed a rack of babyback ribs and started handing them out to folks waiting on line. By the way, the lines were absurdly long, so this was a pretty powerful gesture. This video was posted by Mark Dolan, the BBQ Pilgrim. Visit him when you get a chance.
