Feasting On Asphalt 2 River Run - Must See TV

There is a hell of a good program on The Food Network called Feasting on Asphalt. This season, Alton Brown, the shows somewhat enigmatic host, travels via his BMW motorcycle from the southernmost tip of Louisiana right up the Mississippi to its origin in Minnesota - He takes the side trips that most of us remember and would like to have the time to take again. He and his fun loving crew stop at out of the way eateries and talk to the locals and eat the food that each little area is noted for. From crawfish, alligator, donuts and tamales to fried chicken and everything in between. He includes his whole crew from the sound guy to the camera guys in tasting their way from south to north. This show is a must see for anyone who has been on a road trip and longingly remembers those little towns with the hole in the wall diner that made the best damned ribs on the planet. Alton Brown and his crew have created a true gem. Feasting On Asphalt is what we would all be doing if only we could.
