Challenge #1: ‘Que for Two Haiku

The first of the weekly challenges for the “Famous Fans” is to write a haiku about the ‘Que for Two deal.  This gargantuan platter comes with half a chicken, four ribs, your choice of brisket, chopped pork or a hot link, two corn muffins, fries and your choice of one more side.  Half a chicken is what mere mortal restaurants would serve two people.  But a super hero like Famous Dave will always go beyond the ordinary!  It really is way too much for two human appetites.  Two hippos, maybe (no offence to any couples out there who may have polished one off).  It would be a nice meal for three adults.  But ‘Que for Three lacks the rhyme and just doesn’t have the same ring.  It would even do for two adults and two young children.  But I really don’t think ‘Que for The-Typical-Suburban-Family-Hit-Hard-By-The-Global-Recession would do well in advertising.  So, for two, it’s a great deal.  For three, it’s a steal.  Either way, it’s one killer of a meal!

Now that I got the rhyming out of the way, please enjoy my haiku, BarBeQuethMinistry! style:

Major props go out to youth group alum, David, for working his mad skills to put this awesome video together (more zany vids are planned for the campaign–stay tuned)!  This challenge is open to you, as well!  Famous Dave’s and JRP are following the BarBeQuethMinistry! and you could win some cool prizes along the way.  Just leave your haiku (three lines: the first with five syllables, second with seven, third with five) as a comment and stay tuned for coming challenges.  Of course, please let me know if you and a friend (or two) attempt to take on the ‘Que for Two!

  4. Becka on

    Wow. lol That was hilarious. Pretty sure those people weren’t even acting. They were really touched!

  5. jaynepomuceno on

    You’re right, Becka. As soon as we were done filming the recital, it was clear that we were in the midst of a very special moment. It was almost like the last night of summer camp. We needed to capture their thoughts. Their pure, raw emotions.

    It was so very special.

  6. Renae on

  9. Leanne Lattin on

    It’s been a while since I’ve seen you all. What a way to reunite! 🙂 I felt like I was there. Haha…

  10. jaynepomuceno on

    Prince, you put on your game show host voice and just made it happen. I owe you. Wait, you pretty much owe me your life so … nevermind.

    Leanne, coming in from the south! Thanks for coming by! As you can see, we’re still a tad goofy. Please tell your family I said hi!

  11. donny on

    never heard of Famous Dave’s where is the closest one to Moreno Valley. Where can i pick up some sauce.

  12. Ryan Anderson on

    The nearest one to Moreno Valley, CA is in Redlands. Sauces are available in many grocers and wholesale clubs, or can be ordered online at

  13. jaynepomuceno on

    Hey, Donny, thanks for coming by. There’s one in Redlands and you can find their sauces at Stater Bros and, I think, Vons.

  14. pocospage on

    That truly was an inspiration. I mean, who knew our youth group had such a plethora of talented actors/actresses??

  15. Clint on

    haha so this made me laugh pretty hard and Bekah’s so right!! yeah had to go to rudy’s today and well it was another sad sad disapontements as far as BBQ goes so please PLEASE PLEASE Famous Dave open one in Lubbock Tx

  16. jaynepomuceno on

    Ryan, any relation to you-know-who?

    Poco, actually we don’t have any good actors/actresses. None whatsoever. What you saw was pure, raw emotion.

    Clint, I reviewed Rudy’s (you can search the BBQthMinistry in the sidebar) and had a nice experience. Mostly ambience, I guess. Pretty much lacking in the moisture department. Rudy can’t hang with Dave, though. Keep hope alive for FD to come to Lubbock.

  17. zaza on

    wow…you have some pretty emotional youth then! lol.

  18. zaza on

    so…i decided to be the first (not including the bbq director himself) commentor to add their own personal haiku. yes, ladies and gentlemen, after slaving for hours, may i present…uhm, myself since i dont have any one to introduce me…*clears throat*

    Want some FAMOUS stuff?

    It’s more than enough!

    *bows. and walks away*

  19. jaynepomuceno on

    Woah, you guys are poets and I didn’t even know it! I like the last one best.

  22. S.J. on

    Wow Jay. I’m so touched… I envy my youthgroup for having such a tender moment and I wasn’t there for the blessing. *voice cracking* You’ve… touched the lives… of so many! wow.

  23. mommyof3 on

    Okay so I had another brillian moment *at least I think it’s brilliant*

    The Que for two deal,
