* UnfortunateImplications: The peanut episode featured a visit from the ghost of George Washington Carver. In keeping with Dickensian tradition, he was wearing chains (made of peanuts, no less). This is a black man in the American South. Chains might not have been the wisest costuming choice.

** HarsherInHindsight: In the Amber Waves episode, he praises the manager of the homebrew shop he visits. A year or two later, Marietta Homebrew Supply closed down because the manager in question was embezzling thousands from the family that owned the shop.

* [[ReplacementScrappy Replacement Scrappy Series]]: ''CutthroatKitchen'' and even ''IronChefAmerica'' to a lesser extent. Some people think Alton's hosting duties killed ''Good Eats''. It doesn't help that a few people are turned off by the sheer mean-spiritedness of ''Cutthroat Kitchen'' either.

** Doesn't make it less awesome though. Indeed, in an odd way, it makes it even more awesome.

* UnfortunateImplications: In "Roll Call" Alton not-so-subtly implies that the women's liberation movement is responsible for the downfall of American home-made family cuisine.
** He usually opens up his "American Classics" episodes with a very {{Eagleland}}-ish rant.
*** Though at other times, he rants about how America has messed up dishes from other countries, such as in the Bloody Mary/Margarita episode.
** Neither of the above should be all that shocking considering Alton Brown is known to be very conservative.

*** Similarly, one episode of ''Good Eats'' is an AffectionateParody of ''Series/MythBusters'' dedicated to "smashing" culinary myths. Jump ahead to 2012, and Alton guest-stars on an actual ''[=MythBusters=]'' episode.
