Aaron's Barbecue. I wiffed on the surname.

He's one of my favorite BBQ Cooks in print and on TV. That says a lot from someone tending a pit right now and takes good BBQ very seriously.

Most of the BBQ shows on TV are competitions. The winning standard is brown sugar, honey, squeeze margarine and hot sauce. Pork candy.

That's complete bulls**t to me.

Or lay off huffing paint.

An egregious mistake on my part.

I agree and that's a good perspective. Kim hugged the cat this morning and came less than a quarter inch from getting her cornea scratched.

That was a cold rush of s**t to the heart moment. With her sunburn from the beach last weekend, she almost looks like she's recovering from a punch to her left eye. All it takes is an official to inquire and then you are deep into social services.

That's a nightmare I wouldn't wish on anyone.

I like his dads place (s) and have heard nothing but positive things about his kids small dishes. Let us know how it was.
