What’s up devils? Barbecue season is about to be in full swing, although a true barbecue lover knows barbecue season never ends. Barbecue is gaining in popularity, with more and more people craving the flavors of delicious smoked meats every day. Of course, knew fad diets are becoming more and more popular every day. One of the most popular and prevalent diets is of course vegan. Vegans are of course people who don’t consume animal products of any sort. They also tend to be annoying and pompous, telling you about how meat is murder, meat ruins your body, eating meat is bad for the planet, and basically how their better people because they’re vegan. They also tend to make ridiculous demands, like how the plate they’re eating off of had better never come into contact with meat or any other animal product. It’s lame. Sadly, a new fad that’s sweeping the nation is vegan barbecue. That’s right, vegan barbecue. Well I’m here to tell you about how vegan barbecue is both blasphemous against real barbecue, and also should be nothing more than a fad.

First off, there’s nothing wrong with eating fruits and vegetables. They’re good for you, being a main part of a balanced diet and providing many essential nutrients. They’re also delicious, especially grilled.

However, a traditional barbecue must contain meat. That’s how it was started, that was the main thing that brought people together for the barbecue. The meat was the meal, everything else was a side. Traditions should be kept for a reason. True too much meat can lead to health problems, especially of the cardiovascular sort, but too much of anything can be bad for you. If you drink too much water your kidneys can fail, but no one is telling you to stop drinking water.

And about how meat is bad for the environment. That’s a bit of a toss up. On one hand, massive slaughterhouses use a lot of energy and produce a lot of greenhouse gases. On the flip side, most of the meat that is consumed by humans comes from herbivores. If the populations of these animals go unchecked, they can devastate ecosystems by devouring all the vegetation, leaving very little plant matter for the vegans to eat (case in point the wild pigs currently wreaking havoc in many states). Isn’t that a coincidence.

So the point is this, there is nothing wrong with eating vegetables. Nor is there anything wrong with eating meat. So stop dehumanizing meat-eaters and enjoy a real barbecue in harmony with one another.
