Lots of blather coming out of New York City. Robert Sietsema had clown suit makers scrambling across the USA last week when his issued a broadside claiming that NYC barbecue is easily on par with traditional centers of smoked meat like Kansas City, Memphis and Central Texas. Sietsema will be an easy make when he visits restaurants in the future now that he’s got a permanently attached, bright-red clown’s nose attached to the front of his noggin.
It’s part and parcel of making claims that are specious at best, and laughable to folks who live deep in the culture of smoked meat.
Like Daniel Vaughn of Texas Monthly.
Vaughn went into full attack mode on the Texas Monthly website last night, likening Sietsema to a “fist-pounding toddler.” Maybe that explains Sietsema’s need for Depends undergarments?
