Another Food Network Joke

"Best in Smoke". What a waste of time! Giving someone 4 hours from start to finish to do good "Q"? You've got to be kidding. Except for ribs (barely) and chicken, low and slow isn't going to happen. Shoulder, butt and whole hog are out of the question. As is brisket. What's with the hoyti toyti catering? Real "Q" is a down to earth folk tradition. The preview for the next show is even more of a discouragement.

Was that the show on last night?
I'm glad I forgot to watch it then.
Four hours is all they get? Yeah, that's ridiculous. Maybe it should have been called "240 Minute Q's", or "Semi-Homemade BBQ", lol

Yes, the first show was last night. You didn't miss anything. I stuck it out to the end.

I've pretty much stopped watching Food Network. It seems to be turning into the Game Show Channel lately. What happened to all the cooking shows like "Molto Mario" and "Emeril Live?"

Mario Batali... now there's a joke. He might be a good chef, but I still can't get that image out of my head of him wearing shorts and orange crocs to get his picture taken with the president. It's not like he's Ronald MacDonald and has to stay in character so we know who it is...

I don't mind a "prize" for the top choice as competition "Q" has cash prizes for the top placers. However, this show is far from a "Q" competition and they are not letting the folks go head to head with each cut of meat.

Yeah, but he sure doesn't keep PC! He sure let the "bombs" fly at the South Beach Food and Wine thingy a year or so ago. Plus getting Gwyneth Paltrow to go on a road trip is pretty cool.

OK, I can't argue with Gwyneth. I'll give him points for that.

FN has an offspring one channel down (232 on DirecTV). Cooking Network. Emeril is a regular on it, as are some others who jumped ship.

Still love Iron Chef!
