Getting It Right

It's that time of year once again, when Yankees (and far too many Southerners, I'm sad to say) butcher the meaning of the word "barbecue." From Memorial Day to Labor Day, barbecue would have an identity crisis, if Yankees have anything to say about it. But fortunately, members of the barbecue clan have a strong sense of self and aren't afraid to assert their identity, though they still need a little help getting the word out. A couple of gentlemen from North Carolina have written a song to help with that, and bless their hearts, if they haven't gotten it all about as right as rain!


  1. I love what they had to say about Florida ;)

  2. I was surprised that they didn't touch upon a very distinct barbeque in the nation: Kansas City, Missouri! Gates, Bryants, Jack Stack, and KC Masterpiece (for the tourists) helped make BBQ what it is today. But then, they might have thought that it was too Yankified.

  3. Always enjoy reading your articles, but this goofy song was so amusing that I decided to follow up on their other "road" songs. For the last hour, I've been internetained by these Carolina boys! Thanks, Jen . . . keep 'em comin!
