WhiteTrash BBQ -- Real Pit Barbecue from New York City. This is the story of a fire obsessed guy, living in Brooklyn, with a dream of producing award winning, competition busting, real Barbeque. Come live the dream as I compete around the country in the KCBS Championship Barbecue circuit.

Thursday, December 15, 2005


Today the Iraqi people vote for their new democratic representatives. God speed to them. Let's hope this ends the years of repression and occupation and sets them on the road to true freedom and citizenship in the world community.

Speaking of elections, my friend and brother Phil Rizzardi is running for a position on the Kansas City Barbeque Society board. I had the honor of nominating Phil, so you know I think he'll be a great board member. Phil is a great guy and a great BBQ cook. He's also a good business man, running his own computer consultancy and working for one of the major defense contractors. Phil's real claim to fame is that he is the founder and Grand Poohbah of the BBQ-Brethren. Besides all of that, Phil and I cook together as members of the Brothers in Smoke Barbecue team. That's him up on the trailer cooking at the Grill Kings competition last summer. So, you KCBS members, make sure you vote for Phil in the coming election. If you want more information about Phil, you can check out his bio in the January BullSheet or click here.

And speaking about nominations, I've been nominated by a few folks for "The best food blog" over at Accidental Hedonist. If you like what you read here, please take a moment and nominate me in any one of the categories. Nominations end Friday, December 16th. After the 16th, a group of judges at Accidental Hedonist will review the nominations, and submit five sites for your approval. From Dec 21st through December 31st, the polls will be open for people to vote. I'm honored to be nominated. I hope I make it through to the finalists! That would be a hoot!

Congrats on the nomination, WTBBQ. A very random request of you: I'm a journalism graduate student writing a magazine story on BBQ as a new NYC trend and a new cult obsession, and on the whole notion of "honky-tonk cool." I'm looking for a real-deal New York barbecuer to show me the inner workings of it all: the cooking, the social scene, the competitions, etc. Do you have any interest in being the focus of this story?? It doesn't pay, but the story *might* be slated for publication in a major magazine sometime this year, and it's good exposure (not to mention good fun...mostly for me!). Please email me at magoreli@syr.edu if you're intersted. Hope to talk to you soon!
