Labor Day’s coming up! That means it’s time to show off what you learned this summer– specifically, your BBQ Brain. We all know about hamburgers, hotdogs, and whatnot, but is there a special thing to bring that will wow your friends and neighbors? YES THERE IS PLEASE WATCH TO FIND OUT OK BYE.
Josh: Hey, it’s Josh Androsky with Savings.com. What’s the best thing to bring to a barbecue? Who knows? Labor Day is coming up, so we’re gonna find out right now.
Item number one, beer can chicken. Take a beer, Tallboy preferably. Definitely. Drink half of it. This is important, because you don’t want the chicken to explode. Can I get strong boy over here?
Josh: Andy’s gonna be strong boy for me. Well, then why don’t you… Do you wanna do the honors? Wait, that’s a leg. Is there an extra leg inside of…?
Andy: Inside of her.
Josh: Oh, it’s her neck? Oh, God. There’s so much other gross stuff in here.
Andy: My baby.
Josh: So you have a bowl to put all the gross stuff in.
Josh: We’ve got to name her. Nancy Grace, perfect.
Andy: Hello, Nancy.
Josh: This is Nancy Grace, our chicken, and I’ll treat you into Nancy and pull out all her grossness. If it’s not coming out…
Andy: It’s like a pumpkin in there.
Josh: Is this legal to show? There we go, Nancy, and ta-da. There she is. Look at her. Oh, Nancy.
Hamburgers, All American. There’s no such thing as a barbecue without a hamburger, right? My friend, Keane, and I went to Ralph’s, bought 10 hamburgers for $10. I mean, you know, with hamburgers, I don’t like to explain it. Let’s just put them on a grill. Let’s go. Brats, they’re essential. You need brats at a barbecue. I don’t know what the hell it is. I’m in the USA. USA!
All right, so I burned a couple of burgers. Why is it so firey?
Andy: Cincinnati cheeseburger.
Female: It tastes like a burger.
Josh: We’re gonna get Nancy off that grill. It does sound like [inaudible 00:03:08] Get Nancy off the grill. Man, why do hot dogs get such a bum rap?
Male: Oh, the [inaudible 00:03:16].
Andy: Liberal media.
Male: I already said [inaudible 00:03:20].
Andy: Fair enough.
Josh: What do we do exactly with it? Oh, I stabbed myself with my hand. So we’ve eaten everything that we have attempted to eat. What? That’s not [inaudible 00:03:34]. We’ve eaten everything. We’ve sampled each of the delicious offerings the gods of Ralph’s have given us. It’s time now to decide what is the best summer grillable item?
Andy: I got to say it’s Nancy Grace. It’s the beer can chicken. I was not expecting that. It was great.
Josh: All right, Keane?
Keane: Yeah, I would have to agree with Andy. I think the chicken was the winner here.
Male: I think I’m probably still going to go with Nancy Grace and/or ribs.
Josh: So it’s unanimous. Nancy Grace is the winner. It’s the first time I’ve ever said that and I feel like that’s the first time most of you have ever heard that sentence. Beer can chicken is the way to go. It’s easy to cook, it only takes an hour, and it’s amazing. Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re gonna eat the rest of this.
