Saturday: Ribs and Alabama Football

It could not be a better plan for a Saturday afternoon. My college football team, Alabama, is ranked number one in the country and is playing a rivalry game against LSU. As a perfect compliment, I will be firing up the Backwoods and cooking a few racks of ribs. My goal is to time the ribs so they are done just in time to be devoured at halftime. I will post some pictures when it is all over.

The Backwoods

Hey, all you New Yorkers: If you want to have some BBQ and experience the passion of Alabama football, head down to Brother Jimmy's BBQ at Lexington Avenue and 31st Street in Manhattan. The Greater New York Alabama Alumni Association holds their game watching events there. I went to one a couple years back, when they used to hold them at the Mercury Bar. It was pretty cool, they even got the waitresses to wear Alabama cheerleader uniforms.



I'm sure it will be even better at Brother Jimmy's. It's apparently a new place, complete with flat screen TV's. I cannot vouch for their BBQ at all, but I'm sure there will be plenty of buzz. The Alabama faithful really come out when the team is playing well. The game starts at 3:30 Saturday afternoon.

Here's a link to a review from PigTrip about one of the other Brother Jimmy's BBQ joints in New York. Can't be too much different....

Too bad they're at Brother Jimmy's. It's got some of the worst BBQ in NYC.

Stick with the other foods.

I'm also not high on Brother Jimmy's BBQ but as far as NYC BBQ joints go, I gotta say it's one of the best for watching sports.

Where's the food porn?

No problem. Forgot to say thanks for the link!

I'm sure the choice of restaurant isn't because of their BBQ excellence, probably much more about the beer and wings, and most importantly, football!!

No problem on the link. The first thing I did when I found out that the game watching events had been moved there was to check out your review to see how the food is.
