Alton Brown's Feasting on Asphalt

Is anyone else enjoying the Feasting on Asphalt show in Food TV? It's a road trip with lots of road trip history thrown in, and lots of regional specialties and mom & pop diners. Great fun for those of us stuck at home and dreaming of hitting the road. I'm a big fan of Alton's anyway, so this is a real treat.

We only have basic cable here in the summer. We figure we are out and about most of the time anyway. I really miss Food Network in the summers. We also love Alton and his sort of kooky scientific personality.

Stefanie,

I am watching this show with great interest. It looks like a great deal of fun and the way to see the USA. Reminds me of the TV show "Then Came Bronson" with Michael Parks in 1969. But then I am dating myself.

There is a NPR show which features Jane and Michael Stern's book Road Food. A good source for out of the way resturants, mostly on the eastern side of the US, unfortunately.

I'm also a big fan of AB. I emailed him when he posted his 78? Airstream on ebay - it was real nice, although no reply. Speaking of Food Network, check out the Region 1 rally Alumination Celebration and the Tin Chef cookoff spin from Iron Chefs. My wife will be one of the participants representing the New England Unit.

If anyone is interested, we have a thread on this forum where everyone wrote in about their fave regional foods or places to eat. Great summer time read. Sorry I can't remember the title of the thread, but "regional food" ought to do it. Maybe would be fun to bump and add to it with so many new members? ~G

Thumbs up Its a great show!

Alton is so cool!! I like the Feasting on Asphalt show too! I am a little worried when he tries to drive the motorcycle and talk into the camera at the same time, must be the mother hen in me! What creative and cool camera work on all his shows! I love the little skits he does on Good Eats! He did a bit last week about behind the scenes at Good Eats, its amazing the props they make for that show!

Oh, me too! I'm like "hey, both hands on the wheel there buddy!"

Yeah, that regional food thread is just the thing I wanted. I love watching shows about what people eat in other parts of the country. On the last episode he had a Brain Sandwich somewhere in Indiana. I assume that's VERY regional! You'd have a hard time finding that out here!

Talking Enjoy? You Bet!

Some think it's Emeril or Rachel Ray that make the Food Network. It,s AB.
It's too bad he's not pulling the Airstream around but the BMW is the next best thing. Gives it more sex appeal I guess. TV is all about demographics.
We always try to find local fare when we are on the road. Some of the best lunches I've ever had have been in the local "Bar and Grill". Friday night fish fry in Wisconsin, giant platter of fried chicken in Georgia, Derby Pie in Kentucky. Aren't these one of the things that make the road trip so enjoyable?

Can't wait 'till next week,
Tom.

Well, I guess that way you know you will always have a date on Friday nights!

Sorry, couldn't resist.

I won't spoil it if you haven't watched it yet, but I have to get one of those 12 volt lunchbox stoves the truckers showed Alton which he later used to make meat loaf. Its on the Flying J website, but sold out...I'll just keep on looking... That would be so sweet for those long days of driving...hmmm aha!! Found it here at Go Truck Stop ouch higher on the price but has a cookbook...

Have to agree that Alton Brown makes foodnetwork worth watching. I've got a huge backlog of Good Eats on tivo to enjoy: so entertaining. Feasting on Asphalt was terrific, cool music and all. Just wish the show would keep going (maybe after some "repair" work.)

Definately plan on checking out that Burton stove, too. Very neat!

My wife said she wants one of the Lunch Box Stoves, too! She also wanst one of those 12 volt crock pots. I wonder if the cord would reach from the power port next to the tele to the kitchen sink in our 30' Safari so we could put the crock pot or Lunch Box Stove in the sink while on the road and have dinner ready when we arrive at our destination?
