Slow cook BBQ Burger
Flags flapping in the breeze. Baseball on the radio. Giant pork shoulder cooking slowly on a BBQ for fourteen hours. Guns at the ready to repel the demon hordes.
That’s the world of Emergence, John Birmingham’s new novel.
Here’s the first USA-all-the-way burger to supercharge Dave, the Earth’s latest hero with a splitting maul.
Bun – Burger
This is pretty much a fourth of July cookout in a burger. Five ‘merican stars for God and Country.
Damned if this doesn’t actually taste great. While the burger is sweeter than one I’d normally eat, blow me down if the roasted pulled pork and minced patty didn’t balance it out and make it a winner.
Estimated minutes of helping Dave
High sugar sauce. Lots of protein. Thirty-five minutes.
Demons. Meet Lucille.
