"I was watching the always witty and informative Alton Brown on "Good Eats" last night as he searched for the ultimate barbeque process. I’ve been a fan of the show for a couple of years even though I remain hopeless in the kitchen.
One shot showed Brown explaining the science behind smoking meat when he looked quizically into the distance while trying to recall some cumbersome terminology dealing with thermal processes. He produced a pocket Moleskine and his confusion evaporated as he read off terms supporting his quest for the Ultimate Barbeque from none other than the Ultimate Notebook.
Not only was I pleasantly surprised to see the book, but also happy to discover that after conquering Hollywood, it has moved on to the culinary provinces of Georgia. If we can take Georgia, we can take the world!"
