 QUOTE
"Barbecue is any four-footed animal - be it mouse or mastodon...
At its best it is a fat steer, and it must be eaten within an
hour of when it is cooked. For if ever the sun rises upon
Barbecue, its flavor vanishes like Cinderella's silks....staler
in the chill dawn than illicit love."
William Allen White, American newspaper writer (1868-1944)
