wnyc better

Wnyc ought to consider doing something about its little club of mean, touchy and/or anti-jew commenters. seriously, call a meeting. it's like you are running an entire backend for under a dozen people.

Someone has to speak up for the poor animals - focusing on pigs and cows in this case - who live lives of unspeakable pain and misery, only to die in manners that are too gruesome and diabolical to even contemplate. Unless you read what goes on in animal factories and slaughterhouses, where 10 billion animals are bred and killed yearly in the U.S. alone, you can never conjure up a more stomach-churning scenario. Yet, we imperial humans seem indifferent to this, and still talk about "Whole Hog Extravaganzas" savory sauces, and peppers and onions when, behind the scenes, crying out in pain and suffering is a daily occurrence.

I love and respect WNYC, but was disappointed by the insensitivity to the sentient beings whom so many eat, and hope that in our democratic tradition, your programming will also include those who will speak up for the animals who can't. Thank you.

dboy, that's where the imagination comes in. And don't call me "dear"--that's patronizing.

NY"rs have to learn the semantics...where a grill is wrongly called a BBQ. BBQ is a process, and style of cooking, not an implement/tool - which is a grill. When someone in the NY metro area says, "We're having a BBQ!" They mean they are grilling stuff. (And likely overcooking all of it)

Sorry dboy, but animal sacrifice and burnt offerings has its religious (Biblical) connotations as well and there are plenty of people who are just as religious about meat-eating as you may feel vegetarians to be; probably more so upon closer examination.

Amy -

What you describe dear, is "grilling".

Of course you can do vegetarian BBQ. Open your minds, use your imagination. When my niece got married in San Antonio, her aunt wrote to me saying she & her husband were having a BBQ for the rehearsal dinner. She said, "I can't think of anything worse for a vegetarian than to be at a Texas BBQ!" But she asked me to email her a list of foods I'd like her to have for me, & it worked out fine. Any of the traditionally grilled vegetables are fine for BBQ, big slabs of portabella mushrooms, & nice thick slices of beefsteak...tomatoes. The meat smelled great, I just didn't eat any.

Again with meat segments. Two days in a row. Awesome, WNYC. Let those BBQ professionals make condescending remarks about vegetarians while you're at it. Instead they should be talking about how they're impact on the environment (and the health of their hearts). Thanks, BBQ professionals!

Yet additional proof that the vegan, vegetarian and kosher food cultists are truly impaired!!

Question - how significant is the liquid that you soak your smoking woods in? I have used cheap beer, good beer, wine, even champagne all with interesting results.

My old gas grill is dying. While looking for a replacement, I've learned that there's a new option: an infra-red gas grill. So I have a dilemma. Which is better, a conventional gas grill or and infra-red one?
