This year the chosen country is Tunisia. Susan said they chose to mosaic her face, to honor the mosaic tradition in Tunisia. Here are a few more shots of the Vazquez's and their handiwork.
It's all about Elvis here in Memphis.
Well, not all. I was here to help spread the word about Char-Broil's infrared grills at the World Championship of Barbecue.
That's really all that matters. Cooking, even when it is for thousands of people, is personal. More than any other cooking community, I think barbecue folks are the most personal, friendly, and, well, communal. It's one of the most active groups of people on the web in all its forms.
Here are a few friends I met face to face (though we've "talked" plenty on twitter and facebook).
Heath Hall of Pork Barrel BBQ.
From the Big Apple, Smoke In Da Eye's Clint Cantwell.
Kurt Koegler of Stubb's BBQ
And finally, Miss Memphis (she's the one with the crown). OMG, right? It's like we are twins!
