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.

2 and a half and counting -

WhiteTrash BBQ has been online for about 2 1/2 years now and re-reading my opening post has made think about my experiences in the world of barbecue and where I am in comparison to my stated goals.

I don't have my own competitive barbecue team yet. I don't have a barbeque restaurant yet. Am I any closer to achieving these goals? Yes and no. Yes on the team but a big no on the restaurant.

Actually I am rethinking the whole idea of opening a restaurant. I'm not sure if that's something I still want to do. Oh I still want to sell BBQ to the public, but the restaurant I originally envisioned is no longer the picture I have in my mind.

As for my competition barbecue team, I'm kicking around a few ideas and people and we'll see what develops by the summer.

I also see some disturbing trends in the barbecue world. (Let's see who I piss off with this thought) It seems that the focus is shifting from cooks and fun to money and politics. It's a shame and hopefully it's just a blurp in the radar, but I don't like the winds that are blowing right now. This sport is becoming a rich man's game.

But as I promised earlier, I'm getting back to barbecue; the cooking, serving and eating barbeque. That's where I'll be focused for a while.

As Judy sang...

"We are stardust, We are golden, We are ten billion year old carbon and we got to get ourselves back to the garden."

Oh! Do you spin fire, as well as cook? We should burn together sometime.

I'd love to burn with you Danielle, but to answer your question, no I don't really spin fire. I've been known to spin other things, but not fire.

At least not like that. I've spun things that are on fire around, but I don't know if that counts.

I hear you're pretty good at setting ribs on fire. Want to tell us all about that trick??

Am I on the team or what? Let me know....I'm thinking about New Holland, maybe....And you're "taken" for New Paltz, right?
