This bbq’s secret sauce is just the fear of looking bad

When I found out a fellow Alabamian was opening up restaurants in Seoul featuring Alabama style barbecue I was really intrigued – not only about getting some good comfort food but also but what the hell would make somebody want to do barbecue in a country that already had its own on just about every street corner.

When I found out a fellow Alabamian was opening up restaurants in Seoul featuring Alabama style barbecue I was really intrigued – not only about the prospect of getting some good comfort food so far from home but also but what the hell would make somebody want to do barbecue in a country that already had its own on just about every street corner. So I stopped by Linus’ Bama Style Barbecue in Seoul (both locations actually) to chat with Linus and find out. Here’s a little teaser for our upcoming podcast episode.

 

Anyong, Korea

What a crazy trip to Korea. So much jammed packed in I haven’t had time to share any proper photos, videos, stories. Will have to do it from the US. But in 16 days I interviewed several old friends and acquaintances for Rootabaga, I met up with tons of old friends, hung out with an actress, a model (impressed yet? 😎), an old rock star I was a fan of in the 90s, ate amazing meals, drank more than I should have and saw remote places I’d never been. Can’t wait to share more soon…

Eccentric digs

When you’re tracking down interesting expats you get to stay in some awesome homes. Case in point, my old friend and colleague John Jackson’s photography and book-filled home in a farming village outside Gwangju, South Korea.
