That ain't news ...

Yesterday's Atlanta Journal-Constitution featured an article with this bold-type headline:

Hours of low-temperature cooking yield tender, juicy meat

Given that low-and-slow-cooked pork and beef is a Southern specialty, I find it almost - nay, very - insulting that a major Down South newspaper felt compelled to tell its readers that cooking meat at a low temp. for a long period of time yields juicy and tender meat.

Next thing you know, the AJC will be running these foodie newsflashes:

Rolling chicken in flour and cooking in hot oil yields a tasty treat

Bacon grease can perk up a simple green bean dish

Country ham is fabulous; No, we're not talking about the Blue Collar Comedy Tour
