The title of today´s post has absolutely nothing to do with the rest of the post´s content. The words are from the title song to “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”, a hilarious comedy series for those who get it; probably unbearable to others.

In a week´s time our barbecue team (The Norwegian National Barbecue Team) is on its way to Memphis to compete in The Memphis in May World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest. This year will be the tenth in a row for us and we can´t wait.
I grew up eating Oklahoma barbecue, the best of it as good as can be found in any state in the South. Our tomato sauce is tomato-based, sweet, but still tangy. Not too thick, well, just right.
