It s the kind of food you have to get down n dirty to eat

You cook it with the fat side up so it will drain down through the meat so when it s done it s tender.

Up until now, you probably thought barbeque was only good for eating, but wait until you see what its being used for just down the road. (nat - door slams)

Here at the Spa at the Crescent Court Hotel, you can actually order up something called the Texas Style Barbeque Experience - no kidding - we re talking barbeque on the body!

Only in Texas!

(TRACK)

The treatment begins by marinating the skin with pineapple - just like the finest grade of beef. But it s the sauce - made up of honey, tomato, and a touch of cayenne pepper - that really makes you sizzle -- basted on your entire body with a brush.

(NAT) Cesar Garcia - Massage Therapist

It's more like a tangy citrusy type of barbeque.

(TRACK)

It s the wrapping up though that s the key. (nat - tape 2 19:51:00) The spa says that's when the ingredients heat up to stimulate the skin.

(SOT) Laura Latronico - Spa at the Crescent Director

Anti-oxidants, amino acids that kind of thing that helps exfoliateas well as circulate the blood flow.
