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.

BBQ Drink: Rolling Rock

With apologizes to my friend Lenn, Beer is really the best thing to drink with barbeque. I know that there are wines that work well with the flavors of the pit, but beer and barbecue are the quintessential pairing.

So it's with tear in the eye and sadness in my soul, today I bid goodbye to a dear old friend, Rolling Rock. The LaTrobe Brewing Company which produced Rolling Rock since 1939 had been sold to Anheuser-Busch back in May. As you may know Anheuser-Busch is the parent company of Budweiser and on Friday shut down the legendary Latrobe Brewing plant. Rolling Rock will now be brewed in the Anheuser-Busch plant in Newark, New Jersey. Ugh.

It's a sad day.

If you want to read more about it, check out Yahoo News. Or Real Beer. Or Off the Broiler. Or The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. It's a sad day.

To sad to even talk about it....

Got back from Long Island last night-- got there on Friday at about 10, fired up the pit and was on a 6pm train back to the Apple. No sleep....well a few hours last night....

At least they still make Pabst....

Being from Pittsburgh originally, it pains me to see such a fine institution close up show.

Iron City, on the other hand, wouldn't be missed at all, in my book...

Oops, should be "close up shop".

Geez, I'm even sober. For once.
