I enjoyed the show. I liked how they interacted with the locals, and highlighted the regional specialty (in this case: the hot pepper).
The banter was fine, they remind me of the type of guys I like to tailgate with…and tailgating is serious stuff for Redskins, and even more so, my beloved Penn State. The spreads at PSU tailgating parties rivals that of the finest restaurants.
But, back to the show:
Although I enjoyed the show, there’s no doubt I would’ve like to have seen at least one more dish. My suggestion would be to make the scenes shorter in order to spend more time cooking another dish or two. In some ways, I can see highlighting the area they are visiting too, but in the case of last night’s show, although I was interested in the hot peppers in NM (I love hot peppers!), I’m not going to jump in a plane to visit a hot pepper farm in the middle of nowhere.
I will give this show another shot. It wasn’t that bad – although, admittedly, I had 4 shots of Scotch in me (I saw the rebroadcast later that night). If the stick to the format of showing only two dishes using the local ingredient, it may not keep my interest, but my interest is piqued.
While I don’t find Alton Brown’s presentation style ‘pleasant’, I will give him credit for putting together a travel show (The Motorcycle Tours) that kept me coming back. I like both of those series. If he did another, I would be sure to watch each one.
I watch the Spike Haired guy now and then….but only because of the places he chooses to review. Unfortunatly his reviews tend to be very repetative. I think he would do well if his "stops at Diners and Dives" were a segment in something like the Today Show. One Place in a 5-7 minute segment. I think the half-hour format with three or more stops doing the same stuff at different locations is more than people need to see.
I don’t watch the Deen Boys at all…and unless the Feasty Boys do someting good in their second try next week, I won’t be watching them anymore either.[:(][8)]
I have to admit that I was looking forward to their show but I was dissapointed. I am not sure what I was expecting but whatever it was, I fell asleep about half way through the show.

It is now 8:07. The Feasty Boys started at 8:00. I’m over it.
I sure called this one correctly when I predicted corny and contrived.
Yet another eminently ignorable food show.
The Boys sound like heavyweight Dean Brothers. The New Mexico scenery is nice and I learned a little about peppers…but the usual constant banter is a distraction. They need the lady on the scene to help focus the show. (IMHO)
Two cooking demo’s and some scenes on pepper farms and greenhouses. Not a heavy agenda. Sorry Rouxdog, these guys need more on the table than the script is providing.
I think it comes on tonight at 8:00PM??
I am anxious to see it.

I look forward to their show as well.
I am anxious to see the show and form my opinion. I think I will like it.

To all youze epicurious purests—-Get over it! Gluttony is in! If you don’t believe me, just go to any mall in America, sit on a bench and watch the parade go by![;)][;)][8D] It should be an entertaining show. BTW, there are people out there who eat Lard Sandwiches![xx(][xx(]
The one host appears to be a Redskin fan, and that is a good reason not to watch.
Capt…. Think "Lard" !
The Yeasty Boys, a bacon grease infused, ham fisted, can-dida attitude towards food.
Hmmm, 2X is the Max…. No Girl in the show… The count is now 0-2, Get ready for what could be the last pitch, before these guys get off-the-ground! [?][:I]
Yeah… I think that’s what I said? [V]
If I want to two overly large guys shove down sausages and kabobs, I’ll visit my extended family. [V]
And the promos have them as a duo, no girl for the trips.
