VEGAN BBQ JOINTS POPPING UP AROUND THE COUNTRY

Posted By: Stover Edward Harger III  NBBQA eNewsletter

It takes just two words to elicit laughter from some BBQ folks: vegan BBQ.

That’s the reaction Chef Mick Brown sometimes gets when he explains his passion for promoting vegan, vegetarian and healthier BBQ food. It is hard for some in the meat-centric trade of barbecue to conceptualize an outdoor cook without a single bite of steak or heaping pile of pulled pork. To many, BBQ means meat, but Mick wants to challenge that notion; he believes eating veggies can save your life.

“They basically laugh at the concept. That’s the attitude I get from some people,” the California chef said about vegan BBQ. “(But) I’m finding, surprisingly, people are really receptive to it when you discuss it with them seriously.”

Mick is passionate proponent of getting people to eat healthier, and explaining the benefits of a vegetable-focused BBQ diet is a mission that drove him to found the nonprofit BBQ Rescues! and its website/blog www.bbqrescues.com. This past Christmas Eve, Mick helped serve fresh salads with L.A. Mission to homeless in the Skid Row area of Los Angeles.

As a diabetic whose weight has fluctuated, Mick finds motivation to help others from his own health struggles.

Mick is challenging BBQ restaurants and caterers to add a healthier — not fried — vegetable or vegan option to their menus by 2020 as part of his recent #BBQProject2020 campaign. Using the #BBQProject2020 hashtag on social media is meant to let others know the establishment has made a stride to make their menu healthier.

The chef was part of a presentation during the NBBQA’s 2018 I Am BBQ Conference called “Making BBQ Healthy and Authentic.” After he grilled up some vegan BBQ for attendees, the extras were served with lunch that day. The crowd devoured them.

“I’m finding the key is letting people taste it,” Mick said about persuading others to eat more veggies at BBQ. “If you make the vegetables as hearty and good-tasting as the meat, people will want to eat them more.”

VEGAN BBQ, A GROWING TREND

Though you might not personally know anybody serving “vegan BBQ,” there are a restaurants and food carts around the country doing just that. In Portland, Ore., home to a number of vegan-friendly restaurants, there’s Homegrown Smokers which is getting local acclaim for their “tempeh ribs” and smoked “soy curls.” There’s even a vegan BBQ place smack-dab in the center of a celebrated BBQ Mecca. BBQ Revolution in Austin, Texas, makes their “No Bull Brisket” from a “wheat roast” that includes peanut butter. 

You might have already heard of the meat-free “Impossible Burger” which has been getting lots of attention for tasting — as some people proclaim — just like meat. The patty is made of wheat and potato proteins.

But it’s not meat substitutes that Mick is pushing. He wants people to eat whole, not processed, foods. His personal favorite vegetables to grill are bell peppers and onions. With some fire, smoke and robust seasoning, Mick said a vegetable starts to taste closer to what most people imagine as “BBQ.”

“We don’t need tons of meat to enjoy BBQ, we can have meats and veggies,” he said, adding that it’s less the meat that’s the problem with health, but more in the carbohydrate- and fat-heavy traditional BBQ sides. “If all you do is grill meats and veggies, you’ll be fine.”

LESS MEAT EATING PREDICTED

As word has spread of his healthy, but still flavorful, vegan barbecue and cuisine, Mick got invites to cook for all sorts of celebrities, including catering a “Vegan BBQ Thanksgiving” for musician Redfoo, best known for his mega-hit “Party Rock Anthem” with his group LMFAO.

For that meal he served a smoked sweet potato/carrot mash with fresh mint and a mix of smoked greens.

Mick was also crowned Grill Master Champion on an episode of the Food Network show “Cutthroat Kitchen,” hosted by Alton Brown, a culinary idol of his.

Alton Brown, a master of cooking meat and all sorts of foods, penned an article for Wired magazine on “the end of meat as we know it.” In that 2013 story, Brown explains that the future will likely be much less meat-centric, due to overpopulation and evolving food culture. There’s all sorts of science food being cooked up to mimic the tastes, smells and physical sensations of actual meat, he reported.

“Meat is largely water. But when we taste it, we’re mostly sensing fat and protein. Proteins are simply long chains of amino acids,” he said in the article. “Plants build aminos as well, but carnivores love meat so much because its proteins — unlike plants — are relatively easy to access and digest (once you catch the animal). What’s more, meat gives us all the “essential” amino acids our bodies can’t produce, a trick that almost no plant can pull off, which is why vegetarians must carefully combine foods — like nuts and grains — to stay well nourished.

“Replicating the flavor of animal flesh is just a matter of gathering certain amino acids, especially the yummiest acid of all, glutamic acid, the key component of monosodium glutamate, or MSG.”

Even with the option to mimic meat using plant protein, Alton Brown concludes, he’s not ready to shutter the butcher shops.

“Plenty of people live just fine on veggies and grains. We could just lay off the real meat, right? Not bloody likely,” he wrote.

#SmokedWhitefish #Lox #Salmon #BBQ RESCUES #KosherBBQ.
Some people may just call it Smoked Whitefish and Lox or Salmon. Here at BBQ RESCUES, we consider it Kosher BBQ.

Where can you find the Kosher BBQ in Los Angeles? If anyone has any favorites, feel to add them to our Comments below. On June 10, 2018, I was honored to be invited to the 26th Annual Breakfast Meeting at Congregation Bais Naftoli in Los Angeles. Along with Congregation President, the event was attended by high ranking city, county and federal officials. Check below for an online printable version of the Kosher Recipe handouts prepared by the BBQ RESCUES! Foundation. Feel free to reprint and share alike.

#chefmickbrown #andrewfriedman #BBQRESCUES #CongregationBaisNaftoli #LosAngeles
Was a true pleasure to meet Andrew Friedman, President of Congregation Bais Naftoli in Los Angeles.

For the Breakfast, they served delicious Scrambled Eggs, Lox Salmon, Smoked Whitefish, Banana Blintzes, as well as was an abundances of Salad, Bagels, Cream Cheese and Fresh Fruits (& Veggies). My favorite was chomping on the Blueberries that were refreshing and in season, among other dishes.

After the Breakfast, I attended to a meeting at the West Los Angeles Farmer’s Market. Upon leaving, I couldn’t resist the unmistakable aroma of smoking BBQ.  Venturing a bit further down Santa Monica Bl., was surprised to stumble upon my first ever Kosher Street BBQ at Santa Monica Kosher Market. A Coincidence? After having just prepared flyers on the subject? Who knows… Will say I was impressed to not have to request Fresh Veggies from the Grill. They already had me covered.

TIPS: How to incorporate BBQ and more Nutrition for your Home Kosher Dishes:

Matzo ball Soup– Try wood smoking Chicken for the Broth. Grill the Carrots, Celery and even the Matzo Balls before adding with Herbs to broth.
Kosher Vegan Soup Broth and Gluten Free Matzo Balls are available online and at selected Kosher Grocery Stores.
Smoked Salmon– Home Smoked Salmon contains up to 80% less sodium than most store bought cured salmon.
Smoked Brisket– Rather than the oven, try cooking your Brisket on the Grill to add nice smoky flavor.
Pastrami- Yes pastrami! Try grilling or smoking it at home to cut down on the heavily salty and sugared brines used in store brands and certain Deli’s.
Smoked Whitefish- Is much easier to smoke at home than you may think.

Hope to see you in Fort Worth, TX. this week for the NBBQA “I AM BBQ 2018” Conference. Since 1991, The National Barbecue and Grilling Association (NBBQA) has led the way in sharing and expanding the diverse culture of Barbecue through networking and education. I plan to participate in a Session “Making Barbecue Healthy and Authentic” on Thursday. March 14, 2017 (10:30am) at this year’s Conference to be held at The River Ranch Stockyards. We will provide Samples of Authentic Vegan BBQ, and more.

#Greece #GreekBBQ #ChefMickBrown #WeberGrills
The first Grill I saw in Greece was a Weber attached to Catamaran on BBQ Cruise out of Athens.

What is Authentic BBQ?

The word “Authentic” can mean different things to different people. For most of us in America “Authentic BBQ” is the kind we grew up with- whether it’s from South Carolina, Tennessee, St. Louis or Texas. To me, the term can also be applied to the Grilled Foods that were prepared in Ancient Greece. Back then, they didn’t have access to Cuisinarts, Refrigeration or even Pellet Grills. Most households had a simple Fire Pit for cooking everything.

#GreekBBQ #GrilledVegetables #VeganBBQ #VegetarianBBQ
Grilled Veggie Platter served on BBQ Cruise outside of Athens, Greece.

On a recent trip to Greece, I encountered Grilled Vegetables on the Menus of (literally) every restaurant I went to. In Ancient Greece, they grew lush gardens and groves of trees. The Olive ones became especially popular when it was discovered that they made awesome cooking oils, marinades and sauces. Sorry to break the news to Pitt Masters everywhere, but Olive Oil with Spices and Fresh Herbs was the Original BBQ Sauce.

#SeaSatinMarket #Mykonos #Greece #Grill
The second Grill I saw in Greece was at the Sea Satin Market Restaurant on the Island of Mykonos.

Of course, Greek Cuisine kicked off what is known today as the “Mediterranean Diet”, which also includes Fresh Fish. I had the chance to visit an authentic Greek Fish Market where a fair amount of the available goods were still snapping or squirming around. I also took a BBQ Cruise on a Catamaran (with a Weber Grill attached). The Menu included lots of Salads, Grilled Veggies and fresh Seafood. Where were the Ribs?

What is Healthy BBQ?

The word “Healthy” when it comes to Food is a tricky thing. This is because the most “Healthy” thing people can do is to include Exercise to their weekly regimens. When it comes to Cooking, “Healthier” is synonymous with “Nutritious”. In other words, certain foods provide you with helpful Vitamins, Minerals, Proteins and Antioxidants known to be good for the human body. Some of these are known as Superfoods or High Vibrational Foods. Other foods that are considered not as “Healthy” contain excess Fats, Sugars and Sodium, with little or no Nutritional value.

#Greek #Platter #Meat #Grilled #Vegetables #Kebab
Note how this Greek Restaurant adds more Veggie Kebabs than Meat on a Mixed Platter.

It’s amazing how us in the BBQ Community (including me) can take perfectly Healthy Vegetables and add Butter, Cheese, Sour Cream, Bacon and Meat Fats to make them taste better. We are also not shy about throwing in plenty of Salt, White (and Brown) Sugar, Molasses, etc… to everything. High Vibrational Eating is about going back to nature and eating Fruits and Veggies fresh off-the-vine, whenever possible. Also using the most nutritious fresh herbs and spices for seasoning, with Low or No Salt and Sugar. Let’s call High Vibrational ingredients the “Super-Duper Superfoods”.

#Greek #Platter #Grilled #Meat #Vegetables
Another Greek Restaurant Platter shows twice more Veggies than Meat.

How Can the BBQ Community Benefit?

Good Question! For those attending Conference, the main presenter in my Session is Abraham Kamarak of True Made Foods. He will be delivering a very convincing mix of Facts and Statistics to show that Nutrition is the “New Black” when it comes to the Multi-Billion Dollar Food Industry. BBQ Product manufacturers should take heed and try to develop more All Natural, Low Fat/Sugar/Sodium products to add to Brand Product Lines.

4 TIPS For HEALTHIER BBQ

For Home Cooks and BBQ Restaurants (or Caterers), here are 3 Tips that will help you along the way to serving Healthier, more Nutritious BBQ

1. While choosing your Ingredients for Healthier Recipes, try to include as many Fresh Herbs and Vegetables as possible. You can never go wrong with Fresh Veggies- the Fresher, the Better! Also consider controlling Portions when putting together BBQ Plates (See Diabetic BBQ Article).

2. For Sauces and Condiments, be sure to read the Labels or check for Nutritional Info Online. Avoid Products with High Levels of Fat, Salt and Sugars. Remember just because a product is Organic or Gluten Free, doesn’t mean it is healthy. Checking the number of Calories per Serving is also a good thing. Even if you don’t understand what Calories actually are, the Lower the Calories, the more likely that the product is consistent with Nutritious eating.

3. Be Creative! Most of my Recipes start with a smoky, well seasoned Vegan/Vegetarian base or broth. So everyone can enjoy them. I try to make it taste good without the meat. Adding nicely Smoked or Barbecued Meats afterwards (or on the side) kicks it up a level for Carnivores.

4. #BBQProject2020– Let the World know that you have decided to add Fresh Grilled (or Smoked) Vegetables to your Menu by using hashtag on all Social Media platforms. #BBQProject2020 is a new Initiative the recommends All Restaurants/Caterers that serve Barbecue add Fresh Veggies by the year 2020. We can do it!

#VeganBBQ #Grilling #Smoking #Veggies #Vegetables
YES. There is such a thing as Vegan BBQ! The trick is to Season and Smoke the Vegetables just like you treat the Meat. The flavors are Amazing, and will keep Guests or Customers coming back for More!

Texas BBQ Goes Vegan! (Well, Kinda Sorta…)

Last year while in San Antonio, I learned that some long lost Cousins actually owned a BBQ place called Brown’s Bar-B-Que. So I went to visit with my Mom who, it turns out, tries to eat as Nutritiously as possible- almost to the point of being Vegan. Upon meeting our Kin for the first time, they were very nice as the Restaurant was coming off of a late Lunch Crowd rush. After noting that the only fresh Veggie on their Menu was a Baked Potato, we asked if they had Salads or any Vegan dishes? They said regrettably “No”, but wished they did because there is a nearby community of Joggers and “Healthier Types” who would probably patronize them if they served more Veggies.

Ancient Greek BBQ Grilling

In ancient Greece, fruit and vegetables were a significant part of the diet, as the ancient Greeks consumed much less meat than is usual today.[40] Legumes would have been important crops, as their ability to replenish exhausted soil was known at least by the time of Xenophon.[41] As one of the first domesticated crops to be introduced to Greece, lentils are commonly found at archaeological sites in the region from the Upper Paleolithic.[42]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ancient_Greek_cuisine

Mediterranean Diet

The Mediterranean diet they follow has been linked to lower rates of cancer, obesity, Alzheimer’s disease, and—most recently—heart disease. And although we can’t adopt all aspects of the Greek-island lifestyle, we can incorporate some of the eating patterns and dietary traditions practiced there. The best part? Eating like a Greek is not only healthy; it’s also delicious.

BBQ Cruise in Athens Greece

Enjoy stops to swim or snorkel, stay refreshed with unlimited complimentary drinks, and savor a delicious Greek meal, including barbecue dishes, served by the crew. Choose a morning or sunset cruise when you book.

Superfoods

Some of the nutrients that certain superfoods contain include antioxidants, thought to ward off cancer; healthy fats, thought to prevent heart disease; fiber, thought to prevent diabetes and digestive problems; or phytochemicals, the chemicals in plants responsible for deep colors and smells, which can have numerous health benefits.

https://www.livescience.com/34693-superfoods.html

High Vibrational Eating

Foods with high vibrational energy and nutrients include organic nuts, fruit, vegetables and fresh herbs. Keep to a minimum foods such as meat, poultry and sugar, and foods that are highly processed, microwaved, chemically altered, genetically altered (GMO), contain chemical additives or have being mistreated by a person.

Diabetic BBQ Advice

Consider grilling kabobs. To keep your protein portions controlled, alternate one small piece of the total meat serving with three servings of non-starchy vegetables and then repeat. The mixture of the two adds bulk, and the meat and vegetable juices make for a flavorful dish.

Demand Growing for Healthier Food Products

Global sales of healthy food products, in fact, are estimated to reach $1 trillion by 2017, according to Euromonitor. While the health fads and trends have come and gone (remember oat bran in the 1980s or low-fat everything in the 1990s?), this time the category appears to have serious stamina.

FDA Recommend Calorie Guidelines

Food and nutrition play a crucial role in health promotion and chronic disease prevention. Every 5 years, HHS and USDA publish the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, the Nation’s go-to source for nutrition advice. The latest edition of the Dietary Guidelines reflects the current body of nutrition science, helps health professionals and policymakers guide Americans to make healthy food and beverage choices, and serves as the science-based foundation for vital nutrition policies and programs across the United States.

https://health.gov/dietaryguidelines/

Eating Healthy at BBQ Restaurants

The good news is BBQ food can be healthy and relatively low in calories as well as finger-licking good. Grilling is a geat way to cook meat without additional fat and some of the fat in the meat will sizzle away. Forget the fatty sausages – do something different.
