Feasty Boys: No More Frying In A Backyard Vat
More than seven years ago, in the early months of my columnizing, I visited two guys from Annapolis who were, remarkably enough, becoming a hit on a local cable access channel in Anne Arundel County. Jon Mayer and Jim Stump were clearly not ready for prime time, but as the Feasty Boys, two hefty gents who knew there was honor and magic in frying a huge turkey in a massive vat of oil out in the yard, they showed enormous promise.
Consider that promise fulfilled. The boys debuted this week with their own show on The Travel Channel, "The Feasty Boys Eat America." WIth a big TV budget, the guys are far from the backyard and home kitchen where I visited them, and they're not cooking Chicken Miata anymore, either--a lovely, delicate dish in which you tenderize the meat by wrapping it well, placing it on the driveway and running it over with a Mazda Miata.
Rather, the guys learn about chilis in New Mexico, work the cranberry bogs in Massachusetts, and come home to Maryland to travel the Chesapeake with a crab man.
Hey, we all have to head uptown now and then. But I feel secure in saying that while the Feasty Boys may no longer be cablecast on the channel that carries the zoning board hearings, they will nonetheless stay true to their core religious belief--that there is no food, none, that cannot be improved with a generous layer of cheese, topped off with a dollop of butter to promote browning.
