Barbecue in New York?!

There's some kind of promotional item sitting on a counter here at Rachael Ray's magazine. I don't know what it's for, but it says "BBQ and New York: What's Not to Love?" Uh, how about the barbecue? Because there's no good barbecue in New York. I don't care what anyone says. It's just not possible.

Yeah, especially not Virgil's, which is where a Southern native once sent me. My sister asked the waiter if they used Manwich.

That's the only barbecue I've had in New York, and it's horrendous. They served it for dinner the first month I was at People and I wondered what strange land I came to.

Oh Gawd. You should try the "BBQ" up here in the Midwest. Wow. Well, maybe you shouldn't try it. A girl offered me some of her 'homemade turkey bbq' today. Ingredients:

ground turkey
ketchup
yellow mustard
brown sugar

You should head up to Harlem for decent ribs. Some guy at a party had some; I tried them, and they weren't horrible. Sorry, I don't remember the place :(

I hope she's not a foods editor or recipe developer.

"Turkey" and "BBQ" just do not belong together. It's like sugar-free BBQ sauce.

Nah, she's in PR. AND she doesn't like chocolate. I'm thinking she might be communist.
