BBQ?
Ok OTE24, let's talk BBQ. What kind do you like best? I used to like all BBQ, as long as it was pork. Honestly, I've had some great brisket. Phoenix City, Ala used to have an abundance of BBQ restaurants. I remember one intersection that had 3 BBQ joints at the one intersection.
Lately I have decided that pork is chopped because there is still fat and other unpleasantries still in it. Pulled pork on the other hand is usually cooked long enough to melt away all of fat. What isn't melted is removed by hand.
If you're ever in Marietta, Ga, there is one great BBQ place that I just love, Sam and Dave's #1. I eat lunch there about 3 times a week. (They also have a #2 but is mainly for the take out crowd. The have pulled pork, beef, chicken and short ribs. They have a mustard base sauce (NC I believe) and a great KC sauce.
I have a Bullet (WSM, Webber Smokey Mtn) that does great. They have a good website with great recipes and a fantastic message board, http://www.virtualweberbullet.com/tour.html
Anyone else have any good BBQ joints in their town?

Holy smokes Bruce - down in Florida where it seems there's one on every corner I'm going to get your opinion. We know that Curt's truck automatically turns into the driveway at most of them.

That's probably how the trophies flew out............

Do they still have the Hickory House chain in the Atlanta area? I remember (35-40 years ago) you could smell 'em a mile away.

Hickory House was big in the 60-80's. At that time there were probably 15 or 20 around town. Now I only know of 2, both on the north side of Atlanta. In my opinion they are now more of a breakfast and lunch restaurant with county style cooking. In fact no one even talks about their bbq anymore.

Bruce are starting to drink early in the day or just running out of things to talk about. I will tell RT to find some new places to eat some BBQ on the way to Jacksonville

Just tired of beating a dead horse.
I googled Orange Park, Fl and BBQ and came up with Woodies Bar B Q and Pig BBQ. Jenn said forget them and go to Bono's.

Bruce,
I live in SoCal, so BBQ is only
available at the franchise places.
Friday's , Chili's so on and so on.
It's a BBQ wasteland. Only good Mom
and Pop's we have here are our great
Mexican spots. My team does make a
trip to Central California(Santa
Maria)to play in a tourney with
the only goal to eat at a steak
and BBQ place named Jocko's in
Nipomo,Ca. Great place! Santa Maria even allows big BBQs(large drum) on
one of the main drags. The team
usually looks for a BBQ place
when we travel. I realize now all
I have to do is get on the board
and should get a good spot. Talking
food never gets old.

Mike,
Live a couple blocks from Woodranch.
Good place. A little upscale though.
I forgot about Tulsa Rib, the one on
Tustin and Collins in Orange is a great little place. Are you
guys playing in Anny this weekend?
