NC BBQ makes national headlines

No, my post on Grill'n & Chill'n BBQ Cook-Off needing more judges hasn't yet gone viral. That is equal parts unfortunate and inexplicable.

No, the national headlines surround a years ago incident when presidential candidate Rick Perry put his foot in his mouth about North Carolina BBQ no less. Referring to some Eastern NC BBQ, he was quoted as saying "I've had road kill that tasted better than that," which of course doesn't sit well with those who take their BBQ seriously.

The whole article in the LA Times is an entertaining read filled with lots of good barbs and one-liners; check it out.
