Our Barbeque is Best!

I know a lot of folks claim that their part of the country produces the best barbeque. I'm making a claim right here and right now that North Alabama, specifially The Shoals area produces the best barbeque in the world.

I back my argument by presenting Chris Lilly, 10 time World Barbeque Champion and host of the Kingsford Barbeque Championship Series. (He's not hosting the finals but he was hosting all the prelims). Chris is from Florence. Check out the link above and click on 'More Grilling Tips from Chris Lilly' to see him in action.

I've drank several beers with Chris back in the day and played several hands of poker with him. Now that he's barbeque famous, I'll state that I went out with his sister a few times back in high school. She was a looker, yes sir!

Below is a recipe for his pork shoulders:

Well Fed Network - Chris Lilly’s Pork Shoulder:
"Today, please welcome Ty Hillin from Paddlin’ Pigs BBQ to our stable of fine writers. Ty’s cooking one of the classic recipes in the barbeque world, Chris Lilly’s Pork Shoulder. It’s damn fine stuff. You can find more of Ty’s writing and stories about barbecue on his blog.

Today I’m smoking 2 pork shoulders. I’m using Chris Lilly’s Grand Championship Pork Shoulder Recipe from the book Peace Love & Barbecue. His recipe calls for an injection and dry rub. The injection was injected last night.This morning I applied the rub at 5:00 AM and placed in the smoker at 6:30 AM. Pork butts(shoulders) cook for about an hour to an hour and a half per pound. For pulled pork, the internal temp needs to reach 195*. Here are the butts injected and rubbed."

Pictures and Books

Here's Steve Richerson and myself filming each other backstage during the Thanksgiving show. Cooley got caught in the cross hairs but notice the freakish vein in Cooley's arm. You know how some world class athletes have bigger hearts or bigger lungs than normal folks? Cooley has an unnatural supply of blood that pumps to his forearms so he can play such incredible guitar.

DBT Yahoo Board Reading List:

We DBT fans are some literate fuckers. Interspersed between the pictures from the Thanksgiving show at the Alabama Theatre are what some of the Yahoo Listers are/will be reading.

Gates, from the Yahoo List matched my $20 and raised me $20 for Sabina. I'm matching his additional $20.

P.S. It doesn't have to be $20 folks. A bunch of people chipping in $5, $10 etc adds up real quick and is just as important as any other amount.
