Barbecue Breather

We BBQ Jews take few barbecue breaks. So when we do, you can be damn sure it’ll be to talk about something like…bacon. And not just anything about bacon, but something amazingly cool like:

This bacon board game!

Yup, that’s right, Mr. Bacon’s Big Adventure. Or, as I like to call it, item #1 on my Hanukkah list.

The goal of the game is to maneuver your bacon-piece through the perils of Meatland (the wiener wasteland, the mustard marsh) to reach the frying pan. It’s quite similar to my weekend mornings, minus the wheel spinning and obstacles.

Ignoring the whole cannibalism thing, I particularly like the bacon family pictured here playing the game. Dad with his argyle sweater and junior with his ‘B’ cap. If strips of bacon have this much fun playing the game, surely you will, too.

Not only does the game look entertaining, it just might be the answer to your very own holiday gift prayers (in addition the BBQ Jew stuff, natch). And if board games aren’t your thing, the game maker’s site has a range of porcine present ideas, from the sublime to the ridiculous.

BACONJEW

We just discovered we have a brother-in-arms trotters: Marc Schapiro, author of baconjew.com.  Marc’s blog is a humorous ode to that almost-as-good-as-barbecue meat, bacon.  It’s good to know there is another Jew out there wasting his time writing about, and salivating over, forbidden meat.

Sale on BBQ Jew Merch

Now through Monday, save 14.92% on BBQ Jew t-shirts, mugs, bumper stickers and all other merchandise.  Click on the Merch tab at the top right of our web page and follow the link to the vendor’s site.  Once on the vendor’s site, just enter “1492Columbus” as the code at checkout to get the discount.  It’s a good way to honor Columbus, since he sailed the ocean blue and introduced the New World to hogs pink.  And, frankly, making barbecue possible for future generations may be Columbus’ most impressive legacy.

Cookouts in the Text Age

Sure, there are some annoying parts of living in the age of texting.  The guy you’re having a business meeting with who is also sending text messages to his wife.  The two people sitting at the table next to you over lunch who are looking down at their iPhones rather than having a conversation.  But there are some positives too, such as the motto shown on this apron:

Swine Swag!!!

The moment America has been waiting for has arrived at last.  No, not signs of sustained economic recovery, but t-shirts, bumper stickers, coffee mugs, and more promoting this website.  All items feature the soon-to-be-iconic BBQ Jew logo and witty sayings sure to appeal to devoted website readers and newbies alike.  Better yet, you can customize your merchandise however you see fit.  Interested? Willing to pretend you are?  Humor us and check out our merchandise page

SPECIAL NOTE TO CONSUMERS: This may be your best opportunity to bail out the U.S. economy and line our pockets with a few cents, which we will reinvest in the local economy by buying barbecue.  Unfortunately, President Obama informed us–over a glass of Bud Light (surely he’ll switch to Hogwash eventually) and a chopped tray at a recent Swill & Swine Summit–that there will be no “cash for clunkers” type government incentives for BBQ Jew merch.  Apparently BBQ Jew is NOT too big to fail, at least according to the Prez.  Oh well, we tried.

BBQ Jew Merch Is On Its Way

Thanks to strong and persistent demand from our readers (keep up the good work, mom and dad), we will soon debut BBQ Jew merchandise.  After all, it is just 147 shopping days until Christmas and a mere 133 shopping days until Hanukkah

As a side note, have we mentioned the incredible parallel between the numerous spellings of Hanukkah/Chanukah/Hannukah and those of barbecue/barbeque/bbq/et al.?  Coincidence?  I think not.

Anyway, stay tuned to BBQJew.com and we promise the merch will be available soon.  Until then, practice clicking the Merch tab at the top right of the page [Note: We’ve taken the Merch tab down until next week as we prepare for our store’s debut.]

Kosher Browsing

Somehow, the site Kosher Ham has escaped BBQ Jew’s gaze until now. Amazing, given our similarly-themed names. Well, consider it gazed upon.

The t-shirt-slinging site is aimed at “pragmatic, open-minded individuals that question the categorical idea of black and white.” Sounds about right.

Just as a word of warning, some of Kosher Ham’s shirts almost made us blush. Yet, many are inspired and several are sure to put smiles on the punims of you Jewish readers. For instance, I’m digging the Dr. Seuss/gefilte fish shirt. And this one‘s on my 2009 Hanukkah list.

For you enlightened gentiles, may I suggest this nice play on words.

One shirt is N.C.-specific, but it’s obviously made elsewhere (the site is based in Chicago). There’s no surer way to identify yourself as “not from here” than to pronounce our capital ‘Rally.’ Come on Kosher Ham, you’re better than that. This much better.

While we’re on the topic of t-shirts, be on the lookout for BBQ Jew gear in the near future. Certainly by Hanukkah. We promise they’ll pronounce Raleigh correctly (if at all) and feature plenty of bad BBQ Jew puns. Consider yourselves warned.
