I’m proud that this is my second post that combines both Guy Fieri and Smashmouth.
Sup nerds, I’m going to be one of three “chefs” contributing food to the inaugural gathering of a yet-unnamed San Francisco BBQ club. Below are the event details and the menu.
Saturday, February 16th at 3pm
816 Alabama Street (at 20th)
San Francisco, CA 94110
- Pork shoulder
- Tongue pastrami
- Frijoles Rancheros
- Potato salad
- Fried okra
- A keg of Speakeasy IPA
Food will be served at 4 sharp so make sure you arrive on time. Donations are encouraged.
The nation of Brohemia held its first ever diplomatic gathering a few Saturdays ago with its Divisadero neighbors, Cincinasty’s Mike Winters and Thizzconsin’s Ben Emmrich (of dry ice fame). In lieu of cracking kola nuts, we broke out the Miller High Life and Grizz pooches, and explored ways to improve pork scarcity in the Western Addition of San Francisco. Recent recipients of a windfall of meat thanks to a hog butchery birthday gift the prior Friday, Mike and Ben provided all sorts of cuts - belly, knuckle, loin, picnic - that we smoked to perfection. As you can see from the awkward smiles, it was truly a day to remember.
What a fucking tool
- Chick peas
- Tomatoes & tomatillos, cooked down
- Black pepper
- Coriander seeds
- Green onions
I’m providing food for my bud’s party this coming Saturday. Because the theme is the Sierra Nevada winter limiting the efficacy of a hunter-gatherer lifestyle, I’ll be doing dishes that would have been enjoyed at the famous Donner Party Christmas Dinner of 1846.
- Kidney beans with salt pork
- Miner’s lettuce, hazelnut, currants, amaranth, nutmeg
re: cannibalism in the Americas - The reason we’ll be using pig in lieu of human meat: When Spanish settlers imposed religious sanctions on the native Americans of Mexico and Central America they banned pork because of its similarity to human flesh. They went as far as to ban amaranth too because it was consumed as part of the same religious rituals. Too bad because amaranth is full of protein, fiber, and iron.
