Episode 24 – Talking turkey about barbecue — aka: America’s Big Dinner w/ Ben Garbee

TalkingTurkey1The gang shares this episode with special guest Ben Garbee, general manager at Lewis Barbecue, who fills everyone in on the joys of Texas barbecue in the Lowcountry. Then everyone is dragged through the highs and lows of Thanksgiving in America (as if it were anywhere else).

Lewis Barbecue and its take on Austin-based barbecue is the focus of our interview with Ben Garbee, longtime food and bev worker in the Holy City. Ben shares his story of coming from Lynchburg (not the one you think) to Charleston by way of Walla Walla, all to deliver us out-of-this-world brisket.

Liz then goes after Thanksgiving with a reading that would make Linus weep into his security blanket. And Ryan rounds out the show with a look at the elements that make Thanksgiving, well, Thanksgiving. So sit back and enjoy the show — and it’s OK to come back for seconds.

And as always big THANKS to the Big Big Monkeymen for the use of their always awesome theme music!
