"You Can't Hurry Ribs" And Other Great Food Tunes You Can Burn

Truck with pig

Here's a playlist of BBQ, food, drinking, and related tunes for playing while cooking. Burn them and play them on the road while you're lookin' for that great little rib shack. Feel free to click to download "You Can't Hurry Ribs", my theme song sung by my niece Natalie Longo to the tune of "You Can't Hurry Love" by Diana Ross.

And yes, I know that all chicken shacks don't serve chicken and not all hot dogs and buns get mustard.

Special thanks to the readers who have suggested additions to the list and offered wise cracks. Add yours to the comments section below.

Red links take you to iTunes where you can listen to the tune and then buy it if you wish.

grouchy?1) Please use the table of contents or the search box at the top of every page before you ask for help, then please post your question on the appropriate page.

2) Please tell us everything we need to know to answer your question such as the type of cooker and thermometer you are using. Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can't help you. Please read this article about thermometers.

3) If you post a photo, wait a minute for a thumbnail to appear. It will happen even if you don't see it happen.
