A newspaper columnist for the Sun-Sentinel, asked me to join his bbq discussion at Sun-Sentinel.com. Mr. Cruz has a long standing feud with his friend Greg Lewis about the finer points of bbq and whether brisket wins out over pork for bbq supremacy.
Here's a re-print of the e-mail I received today from Ralph De La Cruz:
My name is Ralph De La Cruz and I'm a Lifestyle columnist with the Sun-Sentinel newspaper in South Florida.
I wrote a lighthearted column about a local barbecue place that's trying to create a little peace on Earth by offering a mix of styles such as Texas beef and North Carolina pork.
That led to a fun blog item asking folks to weigh in on which style is best. So, when I came across your excellent barbecue site, I thought I'd invite you and your 'cue-versed readers to take part in the discussion.
If y'all care to educate us on the fine points of Memphis ribs versus Carolina pork or Texas brisket, come to Sun-Sentinel.com/ralphblog and sound-off.
