This is making me hungry too!

In Louisiana we have a little different take on barbecue (well I guess we tend to have a different take on everything

Our version is prolly a lot older and ends up as a combination of cooking techniques from France and the Carribean combined with contributions from early German settlers.

Everything's slow cooked like in Texas and we rarely grill anything except hamburgers and hot dogs. The meat is usually cooked slowly over indirect heat (normally smoke from an attached firebox) and then finished with sauce at the end.

My Great Grandfather actually invented the whole injector deal which seems to have caught on across much of the US now. It's pretty common here to either marinate the heck out of meat or inject it with spices or garlic or what have you.

We rarely do a one meat barbecue like in NC or Texas. Usually the main meat here is barbecued chicken or brisket or ribs, but there will usually be at the minimum sausage along with that.

And for us the barbecue menu has to include all the fun extras. Usually here it's barbecued beans (like a spicier tangy version of baked beans), dirty rice, potato salad and or coleslaw, and always garlic bread. I'm hungry!

The Word, by which I mean Barbecue can inspire a certain group of us. Properly made it heal torn friendships, bring former sworn enemies together and is, on occasion, used as not-implausible proof of a divine creator of the Universe. Like the potato in Ireland, it at one time had the reputation of being an aphrodisiac.

Careful, man. I know you didn't mean it; I know you are a really good guy. But you playing with some pretty tender feelings here.

im going to go w my catalina magma grill. after 3 years i have had 0 problem. although some parts rust away (nothings perfect) the customer service rocks.
