Brown's evil twin of sorts. Brown uses camera tricks to appear as himself on one side of the screen and as his "brother" on the other. B.A. is often used in a manner similar to Goofus and Gallant to compare and contrast Brown's and B.A's cooking techniques and their results. In "American Pickle," for example, B.A. compares Brown's sweet pickled fruit to a recipe for extremely hot "Firecracker" carrots. As shown in the episode "Sub Standards," he is Brown's identical twin in the Good Eats universe and can imitate Brown perfectly when he wants to. He is frequently depicted as being a criminal, the exact opposite of Alton.
