Today is a good day in BBQ.
One of my favorite BBQ related TV shows starts up again tonight. BBQ Crawl Season 3 starring Danielle Dimovski (aka DivaQ) plays on the Travel and Escape channel tonight at 9 PM.
Here is the website for the show. Danielle travels all over the United States, chowing down on great BBQ along the way, chatting with the Pitmasters and competing in various BBQ comps.
My own BBQ crawl experience has been limited to a few places in Ontario over the years. D&S Southern Comfort BBQ in Ottawa, Buster Rhino's in Whitby. About 10 years ago, I ate at a place in Barrie (I think it was called Mike Love's BBQ) and a place in Orlando called Smokey Bones. Actually, Smokey Bones is what got me started on my BBQ journey as it's where I got my first ever taste of pulled pork. Toronto has a developing BBQ scene. On my BBQ bucket list is Baju BBQ owned by Zane Caplansky.
I still say that one of these days, I want to take a road trip from Timmins down to Florida and back and hit up a bunch of barbecue joints along the way.
Speaking of Diva Q, she has a great Youtube channel where she shares recipes and stories from the road.
Hope you enjoy the show and it starts just in time for BBQ season.
