Here I sit in my home after a night out on the town, a fundraiser for the local food share at the best local brewery in town. My wife's employer is a heavy supporter and we where at the event to have a good time and support the cause. The beer was good and the food was a local barbeque catering outfit, I was stoked! There is only one thing I like better than firing up my own smoker and that is tasting others barbeque. So after I arrived and had a few local brews (and inspected my wife's pulled pork). I decided to get some brisket, ( my weakness and nemeses). So as I was ordering and asking what the sides where I was excited when the dude behind the counter said "well we have wicked baked beans". I was like WOW he is featuring Dutch's beans! My absolute favorite smoked bean recipe. But when I quizzed him about the ingredients like "is there pineapple in there?" he said "yeah a little bit". So I asked him and I think he was surprised to learn that I was very familiar with his beans. He said " yeah I got them off of some web site somewhere". So my post tonight is to call him out! I think if you use a recipe from this site a guy should let the world know that this is the best site in the world, especially if that is where you got your "chops". The name of the caterer is Bad Betty's Barbeque. I think if he is out there and a frequent member to this site he should at least give credit to where he earned his wings! And my opinion of the food? Meh...I can do better, and my rendition of the beans is WAY better. ;)
I have not been a big poster lately, even though I am a moderator here and a Knight of the OTBS I am loyal! Let this be a reminder that we are out there and we know who you are! Love this site! And to quote one of my fallen bbq brothers "smoke on!" and "its all good".
