* SelfDeprecation: Done to himself a few times, but "Behind The Bird" contains a playful jab at Alton's hometown of UsefulNotes/{{Atlanta}}, as a couple of inches of snow is enough to shut down the city (which, for the record, is TruthInTelevision).

Added DiffLines:

* {{Irony}}: There are some tools and ingredients Alton thinks do have their uses, but are really lousy at what it was they were originally made to do. For instance, he spends a while in the curry episode talking about how bad and inauthentic pre-packaged curry powder is for actually making curry, but he does still use it in some other episodes for other things, like as a spice for the Waldorf salad in the apple episode.

''Good Eats'' was shot primarily in and around Brown's adopted hometown of Atlanta, Georgia, and lasted from July 1999 to 2011 in its original run along with three hour-long specials, making it the longest-running consecutive series on Creator/FoodNetwork (12 years) at the time. It's now being run on The Cooking Channel (and still somewhat on Food Network). A near-total compendium of episode guides and recipes have been compiled into three ''Good Eats'' companion books subtitled ''The Early Years'', ''The Middle Years'' and ''The Later Years''. In 2015, Brown announced that Netflix would be hosting a run of a new season of ''Good Eats''.

Added DiffLines:

* DoesNotLikeSpam: Alton will showcase just about any food as potential Good Eats, but the one real exception seems to be basic purple raisins, which he describes as "always optional" as far as he's concerned. He doesn't seem to have any problems with other types like golden raisins, but the purple kind he doesn't seem to like any way besides spiked with rum.

* XMeetsY:
** The very premise of the show: mixing a CookingShow with a ScienceShow.
** In the 10th-Anniversary special, Alton explained his original idea for the show as Julia Child meets ''Mr. Wizard'' meets ''Creator/MontyPython''.

Added DiffLines:

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: How Alton got his science information changed as the show progressed. It went from food scientist Shirley Corriher to nutritional anthropologist Deb Duchon to the Lady of the Refrigerator.
** Likewise, longtime show friend W was [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome unceremoniously replaced]] in the later season by the Dungeon Master.
