not to be outdone, newcomers in San Antonio are also causing a ruckus. enjoy this article with Captain Denise Aguirre. they're really making a mark on their first year, and we're stoked to welcome them!
here in LA, your olden Admirals (Chris and Erni for the n00bz) were asked to write a guest blog about our favorite BBQ over at Kevin's BBQ Joints. it was difficult to narrow it down, but we tried our best.
you've still got two more days to make some meat art for the Hype Week 2013 before the holiday starts and your hands are too greasy to touch a computer. so what are you waiting for?!
Washington, DC is gearing up for yet another huge meat success in 2013! check out this article in the Washington Post getting people hyped for it. although it's a great article, we can't completely condone the title. we love our veggie friends who come along for the sides. (Meat Week Boston even has a vegetarian captain!)
after a year of waiting and processing and a bunch of legal terms, we finally received our official registered trademark document! Meat Week can now be followed by that tiny "R" we all love so much. USA! USA! USA!
well, here it is. the final video of the final day of Meat Week 2012 in Los Angeles. this doesn't even come close to portraying how fun the whole day was. for instance, the whole portion of the night where we fried everything we could get our hands on was too dark to see.
anyway, enjoy these glimpses of the beautiful afternoon we used to smoke homemade sausages, eat bacon-laden desserts, and host the first-ever Meat Week talent show!
Meat Week 2012, you will be sorely missed. assuming the world doesn't end, we'll be waiting for 2013 with arms wide open. thanks to everyone who made this year awesome. Meat Week Honors and Best Ofs will be up soon!
on Saturday we journeyed all the way to Bellflower to visit Hambone's BBQ & Po'Boy Sandwiches. we had no idea what to expect, but man was it worth the drive! it would be worth twice the drive for their cobbler, excellent pulled pork, and...well everything else on their menu. they even played some slow jamz for us while we basked in the afternoon sun.
after a couple of days away from editing duty (2 full days of Meat Week events, of course) we're back with another video! this one is from Friday night at Mom's BBQ House. they are kind enough to open up their storage facility and let us bring in tables and chairs so we can all fit. it was a great night with a lot of Mom's famous mac n'cheese.
now it's time to line dance off some of that pork!
now you, too, can have the powers of high-tech video productions in your hands, when you master the state-of-the-art MeatCam2000. just watch this informational video, shot on-location at Huston's Texas Pit BBQ.
our high-tech modifications (strapping on a headlamp) to the MeatCam2000 didn't work quite as well as expected, so it's back to the lab for us. the food truck, Smokin' Willies, however, was a huge success! most people made second trips through the line for pulled pork tacos, tri-tip, meatballs and more. Willie himself even gave an informational speech about BBQ! the guys were so friendly and fun, we'll definitely be doing this again.
ahhh, Kansas City BBQ Company. if only their lighting was as amazing as their food. the MeatCam2000 is getting an upgrade tonight, so tomorrow's footage will look better. in the meantime, have fun trying to decipher your friends' faces!
