The World’s Largest Barbecue November 18, 2007

Posted by Michael in News.

In the past, IB has been the go-to site for breaking news about squirrels. And duck pron.  And the U.S.-Japan rivalry at hot dog eating contests. That’s right, we cover the stuff that matters.

However, these franchises seem to have lapsed for lack of new material. So I figure we should forge ahead with coverage of current events involving a new matter of public importance.




SAFI, Morocco (AFP) – A French cook has prepared the world’s largest barbecue — spit-roasting a 550-kilo (1,213-pound) camel for 15 hours at a seaside Moroccan town south of Rabat.

“It’s a tradition that’s fallen out of favour,” said 63-year-old Christian Falco from the southwestern French city of Perpignan, describing a time two centuries ago when a Moroccan king offered a roast camel to his people.

I wonder why barbecuing whole camels fell out of favor. Perhaps because it tastes like crap? What kind of idiot would bring this back?

“I brought it back,” said Falco, a six-time Guinness world record holder whose other culinary claims to fame include spit-roasting the world’s largest slab of beef, 985.5 kilos, in 1996.

Did I mention that Falco is French?

Falco began barbecuing his latest meal early Saturday, using three tons of wood and 15 liters of oil to cook the camel meat.

Camel? Meat’s probably dry.
