I'm hoping to pick your brains for some slogans. We're participating in a Ribfest for the first time at the beginning of August. Worked with another ribber this weekend to learn the ropes, which was a great opportunity.


We're having signage made up soon and need to fill approximately six signs with witty bbq-isms. Since we have not won any competitions (yet!), we can't mention that. Anyone have any funny or memorable slogans relating to bbq, grilling, ribs, or pig? I have searched for hours on the Net but some of the funniest are anti-vegetarian, which won't do in Toronto. (We had several people ask if we had vegetarian ribs on Saturday. Yeah, these on the grill are from a soybean--or a celery!)


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Is beef so dear or pork so sweet as to be bought at a chain restaurant?

And there ought to be something someone could do with the capitol of Discworld, Ankh-Morpork.

I'm already making fake Romanian chicken for that boy. If I undertake all this one TOO, he'll get all spoiled rotten (ahem) and at the end of the process, we'll still be eating . . . TOFU.


Naaaaaaaaah; think I'll pass.

Hee, hee . . . read UP. It's not fake chicken; it's fake Romanian.


That said, however, I'm sure the fast-food establishment will show you how to make fake chicken. Those folks can fake ANYTHING.

I had some fake chicken the other day in the form of Morningstar Farms veggie buffalo wings. Not half bad, once I doctored them up with a little melted butter and Texas Pete.

Wait!!! The pro-carnivore BBQ thread has been taken over by TOFU and fake chicken! That just isn't right.


I just came across this slogan: "every butt deserves a good rub." We could also use that as "our racks get a good rub every day," or is that way too sleazy (not on t-shirts, but on a sign perhaps)?


Don't know how to set up a vote, but welcome comments on sleazy/non-sleazy.

Sleazy but clever and subtle -- I think that's the difference between witty sleaze and downright offensive redneck trash.


Can we hijack the thread even further with a digression into "elegant sleaze," maybe? I bet we can . . .

(post #42290, reply #50 of 67)

That's the hook I'm going for--elegant sleazy! Witty and urbane (considering we're ribbers from downtown Toronto and not Alabama or a really cool ribbing state) is the tone I need to set.


Please, more input on elegant sleaze, which could also be considered cheekiness perhaps?

Okay, more later but I think at the very least you have to leave room for two or three interpretations -- the straight one (literal), the "huh? WHAT did they say?" one, and POSSIBLY the snicker-snicker-aren't-they-naughty one.


Pray for me. I have to eat lunch at Olive Garden today. Iceberg lettuce, here I come.

Fake Krab is at least real fish (pollack).  Fake bread -- squishy white sponge has no resemblance to any real food I know of.  Its a cellulose container for calories and air.

I lived through it. Friend Bill ordered cheese ravioli and I swear to God it tasted like it'd just been yanked out of the freezer and slammed into a microwave.


Do you think OG management has ever heard of oregano?

Oh, I'm sure they have.  It's that faintly gray-green stuff in the bottle over there that's been sitting on the shelf for a couple years so that now it tastes a little like dried grass.

GRASS?!?!?! Do you mean "lawn" or . . . never mind.


When my friend's older brother came home from the service, he ACTUALLY CONVINCED their Mother that Vietnam was a huge oregano exporter and that stuff in his suitcase was to share with ANOTHER family. The Mom, too stupid to get out of her own way, NEVER ASKED why he hadn't brought any oregano home to his OWN Mother.


So you think that the entire Olive GagMe chain goes through, say, eight, ten ounces of oregano a year?
