'Tis the season for barbecues. With Father's Day and Fourth of July on our doorstep, thoughts turn to the thrill of the grill. Barbecuing may be America's oldest competitive outdoor sport. The battles are endless. Since that first day when lightning struck a woolly mammoth and men in animal mini-skirts grunted their appreciation of the superior taste of the meat, to the dry-rubbed, pecan-smoked, indirectly heated pork butt, cooked by the all-American male dressed demurely in a printed apron, stylish hat and long gloves, men have debated the nature of "true" barbecue.

It was a sad day on the west side of Huntington Beach when Brother’s BBQ folded up its cooker and headed for parts unknown. The smell of ribs and chicken being slow roasted in the metal contraption outside of Mother’s Bar in Sunset Beach signaled the start of the weekend. Dan would surf for four days and then put hickory and other types of specialty wood in the cooker on Friday afternoon. Ribs and chicken were then available for anyone brave enough to gingerly negotiate the Harleys parked outside the beer bar all weekend.

From the moment Tim DeCinces tasted the tender, wood-smoked ribs in Mobile, Ala., he was hooked. He'd never tasted anything like it back home in Newport. He was entranced not just by the pulled pork, the tangy barbecue beans and the smoked grilled corn on the cob, but also by the southern hospitality. While DiCences played minor league baseball, he toured the country and tasted the finest down-home cooking he could find. "I couldn't imagine staying in my hotel room," DeCinces said.

The bodies of two men, identified as Travis McCarthy, 25, and Matthew Danihels, 29, both of Huntington Beach, were found inside the unit containing the barbecue.

The smell of a good old, down-home barbecue wafted through the air as people danced to the sounds of rhythm and blues that jolted the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa Saturday at the kickoff of the Blues & BBQ Saturday night concert series. Each summer, Pete's Sunset Grille, located in the resort, hosts a concert series for Surf City locals and guests alike. "We're not trying to create a hotel event, we're trying to create a community event," said David Coonan, executive assistant manager of food and beverages at the resort.

There are quite a number of Korean restaurants in the Irvine area and new ones seem to be opening every week. This is a cuisine with which we are less familiar and so we asked a Korean friend for a recommendation. She suggested Korea House, and off we went carrying several lists of ingredients and popular dishes and their English translations. As it turned out, we were over-prepared because the menu was also in English and our waitress was eager to help. Korean-style barbecue is a feature in many of these restaurants.

One hundred dollars may sound like a hefty charge for a meal, even if it's all you can eat. But for two all-you-can-eat pigouts, it may sound like a bargain. At least, that's the hope of the producers of the Orange County BBQ Bonanza. The weekend festival at the Fountain Valley Sports Park offers a special VIP Rib Village package for $100, which entitles the buyer to unlimited food and drink for four to five hours - in other words, lunch and dinner, with a few snacks in between.

The biggest compliment I can ever give a chain restaurant is that when I eat there I had no idea it was a chain. That doesn?t happen too often, some tell-tale signs usually give it away, but with Dickey?s Barbecue Pit I was fooled through part of my meal. This restaurant on Beach Boulevard near Garfield Avenue, has been open since December, but its first establishment premiered in 1941 in Dallas. Its philosophy is to provide quality barbecue, but at a fast-food-type pace. Meals are ordered at the counter and a plastic number given, then a plate quickly delivered to the table.
