Texas Q History

A producer for the History Channel named Paul La Blanc put this pilot together for a food history show to be called “A Bite of History.” I don’t think the show ever got broadcast–or at least I never heard anything about it. Here is the Texas segment.

The producer graciously provided me with a DVD. I am using the part of the show I appeared in as a clip–not for commercial purposes.

    Very cool stuff. Well done and well produced. I am a television producer that is now creating web video for restaurant marketing. We are launching our first site for a new steakhouse in Alvin, Texas called The Barbed Rose Steakhouse and Seafood Company. The site and restaurant launch in July.

    Once again very nicely done.

    I was reading through your Legends of BBQ the other day and you solved a mystery for me. Back in the mid ’60’s my dad was principal and shop teacher at a small East Texas school. For the shop project, he’d have the students make a bbq pit out of an oil barrell. I never thought much of it because there was always one around, but later I wondered where he had learned the skill. In saw the reference to B&R and that explained it. Dad would work summers for B&R and must have picked up from workers there. I do know a couple of the students used to say the most usefull thing they got out of HS was getting to take home a pit bbq.
