Meet the Meathead Using Science and Sarcasm to Get Grilling Right
J Thoendell stashed this in Food
Barbecue impresario Meathead Goldwyn can get heated on the topic of beer-can chicken. The proprietor of AmazingRibs.com says the backyard summer dish is “one of the great loves of hairy-chested barbecue grillers and a really bad idea that doesn’t work.” Then he grins. "Drink the beer and take the can out of the chicken’s ass.”
That impish irreverence, along with a kettle of assertions about the “thermodynamics” of outdoor grilling, have made Goldwyn a sort of cross between Guy Fieri and Bill Nye the Science Guy—and AmazingRibs one of the most popular barbecue websites.
