Bobby Flay vs. Ed Mitchell - BBQ rib Throwdown in Raleigh
As I mentioned in an earlier post , Food Network's Bobby Flay came to Raleigh friday to challenge North Carolina BBQ legend Ed Mitchell to a rib Throwdown. Now first off I will mention that I developed respect for Bobby when he started his Throwdown challenge because he seemed to become much more humble. There have been instances I pulled for him as well as pulling for the challenger.
I know what I am about to say will start a firestorm of comments because I was born and raised in North Carolina, and I grew up cooking pork Q all my life, but here goes....... I hope Bobby wins. There, I said it... let the party start with the comments. I have personal reasons for choosing Bobby over Ed, but will keep them to myself. I wish both men luck in this challenge and whomever wins will be just fine in my book. But I do have to say this.... who has valet parking at a BBQ place?
So don't hold this against me my fellow eastern style BBQ pork lovers, and you know who you are.... just keep eating that pig and you will make it to heaven.
