Calling the show "disgusting" and "an embarrassment," Brown made a moral point -- he's a dedicated Christian, and he finds Richman's epic chowdowns untoward in a world where one in three people don't get enough milk, or whatever. It's a valid position, but it's also totally obvious and irrelevant, not to mention impolitic. I think Alton Brown was just fed up. And I don't blame him!
