I was going to a summer BBQ and thought it would be nice to bring a variety of sauces for people to pick and choose. Nathan Myhrvold has a special passion for BBQ, having won first place in the barbeque world championships in Memphis, Tennessee. There are eight recipes in the book (not to mention a two page regional map of the different varieties throughout the American south). I chose to do half of them: Kansas City, Memphis, North Carolina (Eastern Region), and North Carolina (Lexington Style).
We haven’t been posting too much over here lately, but it’s summertime and we’ve been busy. Scott just finished a stage at Modernist Cuisine’s Cooking Lab, and Eric’s been working 16 hour days at Blueacre, now that he’s the sous chef. I’ve got my own things going on as well, and now that the sun is finally out in full force around here, we keep finding excuses to be outside instead of inside. But we still manage to hang out now and again.
