— A new Craigslist ad seems to indicate that a mysterious barbecue enthusiast is trying to poach recipes from DFW’s most revered smoked meat destinations. The listing asks for candidates from establishments like Hutchins BBQ, Baby Back Shak, The Slow Bone, and Mama Faye’s to share top-secret recipes. Notably, aspiring candidates who have experience at Dickey’s or Spring Creek Barbecue are disqualified, because “that is not BBQ.” [Dallas Observer]
