The Year of Alabama Barbecue is well upon us and being my first full year in the hobby I have been eating it up.

Everyone here likes a good show about barbecue and I really enjoyed sitting down to this.

Every time I look at a documentary like this, I get the urge to open a BBQ place. I have to remind myself that I am too lazy now

Man, great find. Too bad I can't watch it now.

Watching later at home.

Chris Lilly just gave me the very reason I need both a traditional cooker like a Klose, and a reverse flow, it's that I need both indirect heat for some things, and a combo cooker, that will cook off my chicken drippings like a reverse flow.

landarc is that because the heat passing under the plates in a reverse flow makes the plated hot enough to vaporize the drippings?

Still in the middle of it while I let a Low Country Boil (aka Frogmore Stew) rest on the stove...

I love this man: 39:39 - “I don’t want that sauce to cover up all that work that I’ve been doin’ over there… and if you put too much sugar in it, and you make it too sweet, I could’ve just cook that in the oven and you’d have the same thing."

A little bump so more people can catch this. The documentary does a great job of highlighting the pitmasters and the work they put in to make Alabama barbecue unique.

For me it's a reminder of how big our state is and how far I need to travel to try some more of these places.

Yea this is a first class video! So much good info. Ninja told me something once and it didn't sink in until I watched this but I guess I am a Alabama pitmaster....and never once stepped into the State!

Best thing about this video, and what I hope anyone new to BBQ takes away...all these guys are making a go at BBQ, and they all do it differently. There is always more than one way to get the meat done.

Bump for a pretty cool video. No longer the "Year of Alabama BBQ" but the smoke stays rolling all over this state. Passed by a joint this morning and rolled down the windows to enjoy the sweet smell of hickory.

No time to watch it now, but I'll try to at home tonight.

Even just mentioning it makes me think 1/2 chickens with white sauce tomorrow.
(With apologies to AL brethren if that is too stereotypical)

Me Too. I'm cool with the Meat - it's everything else. Saw several say it started because of getting laid off........ I'm getting laid off next month......... :shock:

Being from Alabama, I've eaten at several of those places and Top Hat in Warrior, Al. is my favorite. First time there was in 1977 and if we are going through B'ham, we go out of the way to hit Top Hat.

This is great, I love documentaries. I'm going to ask probably a very ignorant question, but at the 30 minute mark the guy is dipping his finished chickens in some mixture. What is it and why is he doing it. It doesn't look like bbq sauce.

Thanks for posting. Just watched it. Great music too! It's pretty cool how regional BBQ can be, even within one state. Lots of different takes on cooking BBQ.

Solid video, though I def started seeing some comments outta left field once they hit the Wood and Sauce portions.

One of the white guys claiming pecan and hickory taste the same ----- BS.

Then one of the black guys claiming "anyone can cook BBQ, it's what sauce you put on it that defines it"...................uh WHAT?
