Alabama Barbecue - I'm on TV! Not Really. Well, Sort Of.Friday, July 21, 2006
Av and I were on television! For a three seconds. And you couldn't even tell it was us (we had our backs to the camera) - but I so tickled to see us in "Holy Smoke Over Birmingham" which was shown on Alabama Public Television this week! A few months ago, we were in B'ham and had lunch at Carlile's Barbecue...and while we were there, a filming crew making some shots...so now we know!
This show was made after another Alabama documentary was done - that one is called "A Taste of Hog Heaven" and it features barbecue restaurants all over the state. They feature:
Sho'nuff in Alex City, 13th Street in Phenix City, Dreamland in Tuscaloosa, Boar's Butt in Winfield, Big Bob Gibson's in Decatur, Dallas Soul Food in Camden, Jim's on Hwy 82 close to Billingsley, and The Bar-B-Q Place in Ft. Payne.
Both of the shows were really good - and the one that covered the whole state showed some places we didn't know yet. Hmmm.....
