The Year of the Pig

The Saucier has been diagnosed with The Diabetes – a plague among us pudgy, Southern lovers of barbecue. As you can imagine, I've been a bit uninspired when it comes to writing or even thinking about BBQ sauce for the past week. Have no fear, faithful readers. This just means I'll have to reduce the frequency and quantity of my personal BBQ intake, but I can still cook up all the sauce I want. And, I want to cook up a lot of sauce.

This is after all the Year of the Pig. What? You didn't know? Well, Chinese New Year hits on Sunday the 18th, and 2007 is the Year of the Pig. To be more precise, 4705 is the Year of the Boar. In fact depending on which fortune teller you ask, it's the Year of the Golden Pig which happens only once every 60 years. Parents consider this an extremely lucky time to have a child, and I can't help but think it's an extremely lucky time to birth a new barbecue sauce.
