    1. I don't see the specific item you were linking back to on Frontburner, but yes, we do now know:

      I put this on here because I assumed that people in NY and elsewhere have little to no interest in the goings on of a Dallas critic.

        Well, technically, this is "media" news. Now, if Dotty were to open a restaurant in Dallas, that would "food" news and therefore belong on the Dallas CH Board.

          Well, here's what she has to say about her last day (scroll down to last item).


        2. Any comments about Dotty's barbecue cookbook?

          1. I think "Celebrating Barbecue" a very good book. It hits the meat specialties and sides of the main bbq regions of the country, including a few offbeat specialties like Memphis's barbecued spaghetti and St. Louis's barbecued pig snouts. Sauces for each region are covered as are rubs. What it won't give you is many different recipes for, say, brisket or ribs in each region, usually only one or two. There's nothing exotic, as there is in the barbecue books by the Jamesons or even Paul Kirk(exotic meaning things like Thai or Jamaican influenced recipes.) I've seen the book in the bargain books section of Amazon, so you might be able to pick it up cheap if you're interested in it.

              LOL @ bargain books section. Well, she's apparently got more time to write some more so we'll have to wait and see what she comes up with.

                Yeah, it must not have sold well. I passed on it myself when I saw it at full price in B&N or Borders when it first came out because I already had a few bbq books. Picked it up from the bargain books shelves at Hastings Books for about 5 bucks a couple of years later.
