In Our Opinion
A cuisine of many cultures bbQ has a history as rich as the butter on our cornbread and is a combination of culinary heritages from around the world.
There is a constant battle. The type of meat, sauce or rub used, at which point they are added, the role smoke plays, the wood used, cooking temperature and cooking time.
The peaceful coexistence of all bbQ means, we harmoniously pay homage to the many great pit masters who have gone before us and put our own kiss on every meal we serve. Our approach is simple: source the best local ingredients we can and don't fuss with them too much. We cook our barbecue the old school way with plenty of smoke and time, adding just the right amount of sugar, salt and spice to let that lovely marriage of process and product evolve into something transcendent.
WHAT’S SO BAD ABOUT POLYSTYRENE (STYROFOAM)?
It takes hundreds of years to biodegrade.
Very few curbside or transfer station recycling programs accept polystyrene, so it goes into the trash. By volume, the amount of space used up in landfills by all plastics is between 25 and 30 percent.
Polystyrene foam (the real name for the brand ‘Styrofoam’ most of use as a shortcut word) is a major element of ocean debris and pollution. It is extremely toxic to marine life and a huge component of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
Styrofoam that doesn’t make its way to a landfill or the ocean has an equally deleterious effect on animal life on land.
It’s bad for our food, and bad for us! Toxic chemicals leach out of polystyrene and into the food it contains, especially in the microwave. These chemicals threaten human health and reproductive systems.
The creation of polystyrene contributes to the destruction of the ozone layer. The National Bureau of Standards Center for Fire Research identified 57 chemical byproducts released during the combustion of polystyrene foam.
Workers in polystyrene manufacturing are exposed to styrene (the building block of polystyrene), chronic exposure to which can cause a huge number of health problems.
