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.

Someone Up There: Joe Jackson

We walked out one autumn evening
Someone up there made a fair appear
Coloured light that caught our eyes
And reggae music caught our ears
We laughed as they played all the songs
We wanted least of all to hear
I guess that's when I knew
That we'd be more than just good friends
It happened just by chance

Someone up there - someone up there makes the sun and sea
Someone up there - someone up there brought my girl to me
Someone up there - someone up there makes the wind and rain
Someone up there - someone up there took her back again
And just for once
You can't fight back
No messing with the hand of fate
Oh no

The paper ran an ad
That had you running to the other side of town
Working for a man I never could make out
Who started hanging round
Someone up there got me drinking got me drunk
And made me put him down
The way you looked at me I knew
That we'd be coming to an end
It happened just by chance

Someone up there - someone up there makes the sun and sea
Someone up there - someone up there brought my girl to me
Someone up there - someone up there makes the wind and rain
Someone up there - someone up there took her back again
And just for once
You can't fight back
No messing with the hand of fate
Oh no

As far as I know, Lou hasn't competed with his own team, but he was part of Adam Perry Lang's team for years and Adam's been very successful.

I don't know what role Lou exactly had on the team, he could have been the chief dishwasher for all I know, but whatever he did, he contributed to that team's success. No one wins alone.

In my humble opinion, winning at competition BBQ is not the only definition of a pit master. As far as I know some of the legendary pit masters like Arthur Bryant never competed and no one would challenge his credentials.

Some may argue that it's a bit premature to call Lou a pit master, but he's taken on that role with the new restaurant. I wish Lou much success.

Just to echo WhiteTrash's comments above, Lou has cooked with some of the best competition cooks in the country-- Adam Perry Lang of Daisy May's BBQ and Robbie Richter of Hill Country NY (and the Big Island Barbeque team) at contests where they took home trophies and ribbons. Not being the head cook on those teams doesn't mean his contributions didn't count towards the outcome.

He then spent time running the pits at Hill Country with Robbie Richter where, obviously, he picked up a thing or two. He has never claimed to be the head cook on a competition team, but he's certainly been part of them, and has judged at a fair number of contests, as well.
