Cantankerous Kansas Citian Spits Out Kosher BBQ

Gawker hosts a video today from the CBS Early Show in which reporter Dave Price at the American Royal cheerily serves up his Kosher barbecue brisket to two onlookers, one of whom summarily spits it out on to the ground.

Normally I’d suspect something like this of being staged but given Price’s reaction and the response of the hosts back at the studio, I think our idea of hospitality genuinely caught them off-guard.

I didn’t see the show, so I’m not sure of the context. Perhaps Mr. Crankypants just wanted to make a statement about New Yorkers attempting to make barbecue. Maybe he didn’t like the idea of “kosher” being a proper category, or maybe the guy’s brisket really did suck.

Big tip o’ the cap to Barry Bailey.
