I imagine that some of you haven’t finished your holiday shopping. I’ve justcompleted my own Christmas shopping this year, almost two weeks ahead off my usual start time, and I feel pretty smug. But this is a time for charity, so here’s a barbecue-related shopping guide courtesy of the Barbecue Bros. You can find all sorts of sauces, rubs, utensils, hats, buttons, koozies, and t-shirts. This one caught Nancy’s eye.
Of course she realizes that I, not being a Texan, don’t barbecue brisket, just pork; and I use hickory (and sometimes local oak from the neighbors’ front yards). So I’d need something else. Now she’s looking for a t-shIrt that says, “MY HUSBAND SMELLS LIKE PORK BUTTS.”
Thanks to Dr. Reed (see his comment below), here’s a better link for the merchandise. Note: if you join Zazzle, shipping is free. It pays to join.
The main things to think deeply about, though, are what we are — or should be — celebrating.
Oh, and shop locally and support your neighborhood restaurants. They’re good people, and they really need your help.
