Go Down Home With the Neelys

With all the hullabaloo over at the Food Network, I was interested to see this press release about Pat and Gina Neely. The couple own and operate several famous Bar-B-Que joints in Memphis and Nashville, and are now taking their recipes into Food Network's kitchens. In their new show Down Home With the Neelys, Pat and Gina will share their secrets for ribs, spaghetti, shortcake, and more.

I haven't seen an episode yet — they begin on Saturday, Feb. 2 — but I imagine it's going to be similar to the rest of the Food Network's kitchen shows. Yet no matter how formulaic, I am curious to see how theirs will turn out. It's nice to see such a cute couple cooking together. Plus, I'm glad to see a little more diversity on Food Network — you have to admit they're skewing awfully white these days. Also, did I mention I love bbq? I can't imagine that their recipes are going to be wonderfully healthy, but if they taste great, that's okay with me!

So how about you? Will you be tuning in?

I love this show and watch every week. I've tried most of your recipe's. The only request I have, I would like to see SOME of your old school recipe's remain the same. I know you guy's are doing a great job, some of us like the memory of the way our Mother's prepared our favorite comfort meals, especially if they are no longer with us and we didn't know the real recipe. Thank you for such a wonderful show, I really enjoy the new ones as well. It's a great show, I look forward to many season's of The Neely's. Oh, how do make real dirty rice(old school)? Not today's version.

i like the idea i guess but i'm not really that interested in the content. i might tune in to see how they are and what the show is about - but i doubt that i'll be a regular viewer

I am going to tune in. I agree with the other posters that Food Network definitely needs some diversity on it. The Neelys were quite charming when I saw them on Paula Deen's show. I hope their show lasts!

Probably not...I watch Food Network less and less. Besides, I don't wanna get in trouble with Fit...she'll make me do extra pushups.

I'll check it out, and see if I can tolerate yet another FN personality. As of late, I can only take the currrent personalaties in small doses.

Southern food or comfort food is always okay with me! ;) I agree, Food Network needs some new shows and diversity. Although I still wish that Reggie(I think that that was his name) from the first The Next Food Network Star had won over Guy Fieri. He and his food were "sassy"! lol

I don't have tv or I totally would. I will always have a place in my heart for Southern food. BBQ is even better.
