Korean Women Try American BBQ for the First Time

While oft-cited as the most American of foods, apple pie can't hold a briquette to the truest American food: barbecue. Although the delicacy varies regionally, it's undeniably the meat that makes this great nation's finest cuisine.

With that in mind, Digitalsoju TV, a production studio that covers food, nightlife, and culture in Seoul, South Korea, created a video that showcases Korean women trying American barbecue for the first time. Korea has its own superlative version of bbq, so the concept isn't entirely foreign to the women. However, because of their own rich bbq culture, most Koreans haven't tasted the American counterpart. Until this video, of course.

Watch as six women bravely dig into pulled pork, beef brisket, and pork ribs. Gems such as "I thought you said it was a cat," "I love fat on meat," and "This sauce is something every girl would like" make the video that much more entertaining.

Funny enough, my nickname in high school was "sauce."*
