Frequent Bites commenter and competition barbecue smoker Rob Marlow asked himself that question a few weeks ago, and came up with the answer. What you do is hook up your smoker to the back of the Ulika-mobile and get your butts down to Alabama to start slow-cooking some pork and handing out some sammiches!
The BBQ Skillet Brigade wasn't the only group to assist the residents of the war zone that once was Phil Campbell; apparently there is a society of men (and one woman) named Phil Campbell who convene for a bizarre convention on occasion. Rather than taking over the cocktail lounge of some Ramada somewhere for this year's assemblage, the group has committed to visit their namesake town in June and assist in the recovery efforts. It may only be 23 rather odd people, but every Phil counts!
So kudos to all-around nice guy Rob and the whole BBQ Skillet Brigade as well as to the Phils. After so many of us benefited from the kindness of strangers after last year's flooding in Nashville, it's great to see us extending the helping hand to our friends to the south.
