Andy Griffith, Apple Pie, Pork and Bluegrass

Happy Fourth of July everyone!  There are few things more American than Andy Griffith, who recently passed away in his beloved our beloved home state of North Carolina.  I was trying to figure out an excuse to talk about Andy on this blog but it seemed like a stretch.  I mean, what does Andy Griffith have to do with pork?  Well, my good friend Eric “Cracklin’s” Calhoun answerwed that question for me with the following video.  Take a look and pay your respects to the man who everyone loved and who helped give NC a good name (even if most of us have been subject to a handful of Mayberry-golly-gee stereotypes over the years!).


Andy, you’re an honorary BBQ Jew in my book.  Rest in peace.
