BBQ Secrets #13: The Joys of mezcal ... and Meathead tries to bust a BBQ myth
Before I get into this week's podcast, I want to make sure you know about one of the best ways to listen to the show. Subscribe to it through the iTunes store and it will automatically download to your Mac, PC or iPhone. It's convenient, and it's free. Find Barbecue Secrets on iTunes here.
This week's show is a doozy. I have a long, boozy, smoky talk with Eric Lorenz of Lorenz Agave Spirits, along with another busted barbecue myth from Meathead Goldwyn of amazingribs.com.
Please write me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or comments. I'd love to here from you!

BOOK OF THE WEEK
This week I want to pay tribute to uberchef Rick Bayless for helping bring the flavours of Mexico to the North American home kitchen. Get his book, Mexican Everyday. Quick, easy recipes that make great-tasting meals -- many of which go well with mezcal!
More information about all the delicious mezcals Eric Lorenz and I tasted can be found on the products page of Lorenze Agave Spirits.
