Backyard Fireball: It’s BBQ Grillin’ Time!
I realize some of you in other parts of the country (and the world) are still gettin’ winter weather. Here in Texas it’s grilllin’ time. If you are in Minnesota or New York, stop yer bitchin’ for a minute and see if you can get a whiff of my charcoal fire.
Ah, sorry to be taunting you like that. Here in Texas barbecue is a religion, like football and drivin’ fast. Barbecue is sittin’ on the patio, a Weber grill smokin’ some ribs while you listen to rock and roll and swig a cold beer. Barbecue is more than just tossing some wieners on a fire. It’s smoking a succulent side of beef, making sure those pork ribs are just right, and poking a fork in a chicken thigh to make sure the juices run clear. It’s real cookin’!
It’s also potato salad, watermelon, beans in barbecue sauce, potato chips, Big Red soft drinks and lots of cold, cold beer. You got all that, all you need is some fine music.
