We are trying something a little different this week. Gbot presents: Cody Tries His Best!

If you haven’t seen the official teaser trailer for Gbot’s first movie you can see it here. While you’re there, have a look around at our new website.

This is our second video this week. It is a quick look at the Alien Fresh Jerky store in Baker, CA. If you’ve done the drive from LA to Vegas, you’ve probably seen their signs on the way there. One day we decided to check them out in Baker and we were impressed by how good their jerky is. We have been stopping there on the way to Vegas ever since. It is a cool, quirky store that sells really good jerky. In addition to jerky they also sell nuts, hot sauce, candy, souvenirs, and the widest array of energy drinks I’ve ever seen. They’ve recently added an alien Barack Obama display. Baker is also home to the world’s tallest thermometer, which is kind of disappointing since it is just a digital thermometer built into a big pole. We wanted to see a giant tube of mercury.

Look back at Gbot’s bests and worsts of 2010. We will be back next week to begin our month of Gbot in Las Vegas specials.

So much for “it never rains in Southern California”; it’s been coming down hard! Never fear, this week we open the Gbot archives (better know as Gbot’s hard drive) and take a look at one of our “lost” episodes. We originally had planned a cupcake episode, but after eating one cupcake Gbot decided they were too sweet for him to eat more than one. Also he went on an anti-capitalist rant about eating $4 cupcakes during a recession when children are asking Santa for clothing instead of toys. It took us 2 hours to calm him down.

Anyways, the episode became a BBQ episode when Gbot decided to take the crew to Compton for some Bludso’s BBQ. Bludso’s is a small place and it was a bit hard to film there. The food was awesome, but a lot of the footage we got wasn’t the greatest. You can hear people ordering in the background in half the video since the place is that small. So sorry for the rough episode this week, although I must say Bludso’s served some of the best food we’ve had yet on this show.

There isn’t a real Bluth banana stand, but frozen bananas actually are a popular item in Orange County. Dad’s Donuts and Sugar N Spice both claim to be the “original”. This week, Gbot visits both.

It’s our special Canada episode, shot entirely in Orange County, CA! This was pretty hard as there isn’t really anything Canadian around here at all. We got some Ducks hockey, cheap Canadian beers, and found a place that served poutine. Sorry Canada for summing up your country with hockey, beer, and fries.

“A hot dog at the ball park is better than steak at the Ritz.”

Bogart said it best. Although Gbot doesn’t go to a ball park this week, he does try two legendary hot dogs; although they are legendary for their own reasons. Pink’s is a LA institution (soon to open a branch in LAX) while Costco is just a legendary value.

Balut

If you don’t know what balut is, watch this video. If you do know what balut is, watch this video. Either way, be prepared to see Gbot eat the most challenging thing he’s ever encountered. And he thought durian was bad…

Just kidding. This is Gbot getting lost. No smoke monsters, islands, or crazy mathematical codes. Gbot hates math.

This week, Gbot plays mad scientist and combines two tasty treats to create the donut-dog: a bacon wrapped hot dog fried inside a donut. He also creates two other bacon donuts. Will these crazy creations taste good or just give Gbot a heart attack?
