Legends of BBQ
 
If you guys had to make a list of people who were/are most influential in the BBQ world, whether it be competition, restauranteurs, authors, etc, who would you include?

You owe me a new keyboard!http://www.thesafehouse.org/forums/i...emote_spew.gif

I was trying to line up a list, and many of those names are already here (except the Neely's), particularly what JD had. I think Gary and Carolyn Wells deserve a spot up there.

You are a super resource on recipes and dishes prepared and considering your own tutorials and spice reference guide you've compiled, I don't think there's much argument against. Most people look at the humorous side, but there are a lot of facets that we should all appreciate. These other people are just names. Try getting a response from them at 1:00am. I know if I have a cooking problem then, you'll write back within 5 minutes.

Two words......Walter Jetton

In all seriousness I would put Phil Rizzardi towards the top of this list. I believe this forum has done as much, or more, for the expansion of BBQ over the years as anyone on any of the lists so far.

We are talking about influence here. And this forum has had a tremendous influence on the BBQ culture in a American and elsewhere.

jestridge 12-03-2010 07:56 PM

Well Larry I would put you before those guys or some of the other people that post here. At least if I had a question I would come here

I agree 110%. And I'm not just saying that because of the whole thing with Phil's jock.
