The crockpot show found the boys on the deck in the hot tub with their sidekick, bartender "Feasty Colleen" Cramer Whitfield (who was wearing a neon green bikini), while the "Feasty Stroganoff" cooked inside.
That, the boys might say, was the very definition of "feasty."
Part of the challenge of selling The Feasty Boys Cooking Show to network TV is trying to explain what the show is, says Les Heintz, executive producer of Heintz Media Productions, who compiled a montage from the first shows and is now marketing the tape to TV producers.
"What makes this unique is the chemistry between them," Les says. "They're real guys, and what you see is what you get."
Jim and Jon think a large part of the show's appeal is its simple cooking.
"Most people generally cook like us," says Jim. "They don't eat foie gras. They open a box of macaroni and cheese and cut up some hot dogs in it and call it their secret dish. We're not hoity-toity. We cook regular food with ingredients you'd find in the cupboard. And on top of that, we're beer-drinking, football-watching, NASCAR-loving guys, and we like to have fun. And not only do we get bored with what we see on TV today as far as cooking shows, but we like to do skits and tell jokes and have pretty girls make drinks."
The combination, so far, has drawn the interest of ESPN 2 and its new morning show Cold Pizza.
"They combine the right amount of fun with the right amount of cooking guys are interested in," says executive producer Brian Donlon. "They cook food guys like to make - and like to eat - and they have some fun doing it."
Donlon said the show's Web site receives multiple hits after the Feasties appear: Viewers want the recipes for "Cold Pizza Dip," "Brick House Sandwich" and "Breaded Bacon," and viewers want to know when the Boys will be back.
Donlon said the morning show, which airs from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. weekdays, features a cooking segment every Friday called "Grog and Grub," and the Feasties so embody the spirit of the show that producers are considering taking the Feasty Boys on the road when the show travels to the World Series and to the Super Bowl.
The fun Jon and Jim get from the show is why they keep filming even though they're paid nothing for it and just a little for their trips to New York.
There are plenty of silly moments that still make them laugh. There was the time the Boys used a cordless drill to bore a hole in a Vidalia onion before they fried it, the time they drank vodka and Gatorade when they did a shoot at a sweltering golf course, the time Feasty Jim talked in graphic detail about his vasectomy, the time they filmed at a fan's house simply because the woman had a pet donkey named Diesel.
And, if all goes well, there could be plenty more.
The Feasty Boys were so popular the first time they appeared on Cold Pizza that when Jon called Jim and Les afterward to tell them how many hits they'd had on their Web site, www.feas tyboys.tv, they assumed they heard wrong.
Not 3,800, he said.
The number was 38,000.
It was so remarkable that the Feasty Boys, even now on the brink of something big, still find it hard to swallow.
