More than 2,000 years ago, Aristotle developed his virtue ethics. Key to this philosophy was the idea that excellence is a habit and, therefore, must be practiced regularly to achieve what the Greeks called arete.

Aristotle probably did not have barbecue in mind — or on his taste buds — when he came up with his virtue ethics but, lucky for the rest of us, Mark Gountanis, owner of Steerhogs in Frankfort, did.
