BBQ for Easter? Did I miss the memo?


So this may be a silly question – but does EVERYONE in Houston barbeque for Easter?

In other cities I’ve lived in, Easter dinner usually consisted of a ham (or maybe some lamb), a couple of potato dishes, jello salad, rolls, corn and asparagus. Nothing groundbreaking – but pretty damn good.

This year EVERYONE at the grocery store loaded their carts with bags of charcoal briquettes, ribs and tortilla chips. Grills were smoking and beers were cracking open for blocks around our house. Was it the weather? Or have I been high on egg dying fumes for the last 4 years?

What did you eat for Easter? Egg eating contests anyone??

    no, i didn’t have an easterish lunch/dinner this year… it was just another normal sunday for me, but yeah, usually there are bbq’s for easter.. probably ’cause of the warm weather.

    i had bbq for last easter though. :)

    Well… I am Polish, and Easter is a big thing there. We eat a lot on Sunday, and Monday. (Monday is the Holiday as well). If I lived in Poland I wouldn’t have to go to work today :-( Anyway – during Easter we have to take baskets with food to the church for blessing. Traditional basket contains everything what is listed on this site .
    I wasn’t very Polish this Easter, didn’t bless my basket, and had some Cherry Chipotle Pork Chops…

    Texans find any reason to barbecue. And *any* holiday is more than ample reason.

    Have to agree with Adrian on this one. Texans eat BBQ and if it happens to be Easter so much the better.
