    Is marginally less good than North Carolina BBQ.

    But still good

    Not to swell any heads in the mafia, but Louisiana BBQ is the best I've had.

    I'll be honest, and say the thought never crossed my mind!

    We have a gentleman here, an LA expat. Cooks up a mean brisket and has a sauce he calls "the man."

    It boils all day in a black cast iron pot, and he brings it out for every new guest and the regulars.

    That shit would set paper on fire, but I love it.

    His wife, a VERY large black woman, she keeps a jug of sweet tea under the counter only for people who know to ask for it.

    Speaking of LA barbeque, I might have told this here before but I was at a Masonic Lodge one night, covered dish supper. I got a serving of what appeared to be pulled barbeque pork or beef. I ate a couple of bites and realized that it was game but I could not identify it. I asked (with a huge bite of it in my mouth) what it was and the guy who brought it, an LA native, simply said "beaver". Now to me a beaver is nasty, they smell, have big yellow nasty teeth and beady eyes. I almost could not swallow the bite I had.
    Later, I got some of it in a plastic cup, thinking that I would pull a good one on my stepson and wife. I got home and my wife immediately smelled a rat (no pun intended) but the boy tried it after I told him it was some of the best barbeque pork I ever had. After he took a couple of bites, I told him what it was and he paused just a second, then shrugged his shoulders and continued eating. The joke was on me, he loved it.

    You bastards, I love food and you are making me hungry. All I have to say is you will get your best food (Taste and Quantity) from a Mom and Pop stand and not some commercialized chain of crap

    Texas can cook a mean brisket but that's all.

    There is a good BBQ in Greenwood Mississippi on I65.

    LA has good BBQ'd shrimp.

    I got a cook book from my sister for Christmas written by Chef John Folse it has recipes for cookin all types of game, posum, beaver, muskrat everything that walks or flies.

    From reading this thread, it appears none of you have ever had Alabama BBQ. Until you've tried it, you just don't know.

    I've tried to tell them about Dreamland and other tin roof places. However, I will say that BBQ is truely an art. The thing about art is it varies from place to place. For example Memphis and St. Loius BBQ are different, but both are very good. There was a show on the history channel about BBQ that airs every now and then. I think everyone reading this thread would love to see it. Here is a clip from it.

    You mean you can eat BBQ without a large glass of sweet tea

    Alabama also has some great BBQ. Give Dream Land in Tuscaloosa or Birmingham a try if you are in the area. They have extended their menu lately, but it used to read, "Ribs, White Bread, Sweet Tea".

    Oh yeah, and a sign that says, "no farting". It is still there. One time a friend of mine and I were eating there and he let out a fart. I asked the waitress to change our seat to the no farting section.

    So in other words, you don't like to eat beaver.

    btw, I went here for dinner tonight. Had grilled chicken, catfish, green beans, black eyed peas, hushpuppies, and mt. dew. It was wonderful, but I left feeling like I was gonna puke because of all the food.

    I have to go purge in a few minutes. VERY cool place to have dinner!

    90% of Washingtonians would not know what sweet tea was.

    I asked her for it and she smiled and got the pitcher from under the counter in a little fridge.

    From that day forward, I Gene has treated me well and I never get barked at in line.

    I must have some bit of south in me, I can never figure it. The only thing I really liked about the south was the food and the women.

    Southern women are sweethearts. Up north (as you probably well know), most women, especially the ones who "know" they are hot, are bitches.

    Down here, you smile at a woman, and she smiles back. You talk to her, she is polite if not engagingly friendly. They really know how to raise them or something. Maybe I'll have to find me a good woman down here and kidnap her up to Michigan

    Of course, up north women usually have all their teeth, bitches or not
