You had to ruin it! Raisins, apples, grapes, etc belong in nothing. Never mix fruit with food. Just my rule though.


Ever heard about cranberries and turkey dinner?


Good one Mr Oxner!

My slaw is already sweet. Itís coarse hand sliced tossed cabbage and chopped onions in SPS and drizzled with cider vinegar and marinated overnight in sweet vinegar dressing. In the morning it is great as is but it gets tossed and drained then tossed again with just a spoon of MW. Then finished with chopped green onions.

I served it with baked beans, smoked mac and cheese with hatch chilies and pulled pork. Fresh sliced Texas peaches and B.B. homemade vanilla ice cream for dessert. There was lots of eating and not much talking during lunch.

Oh yeah, I also baked two big taters after cleaning and coating with olive oil and lots of kosher salt (next time Iíll add coarse black pepper). They baked at 350, unwrapped, in a small cast iron skillet until nice and soft, them sliced into fat silver dollars and served to rave reviews. Nothing added, just the slice. I was surprised how well they were received.

I made mine between innings in the baseball game. The raisins are a first for me. I always add a dash of cayenne.



These beans should jell up fine after my martini.



My pulled pork is from the freezer. I'll make three dinners and several sandwiches with what I have prepared today.

It has been my observations that most barbecue places don't make their own potato salad and coleslaw. I think I can beat them all on both. I like eggs in my potato salad.

We make our own coleslaw, but not potato salad. The reason most don't is there is no payoff. Between the prep space, labor in time, and the quantity used, it's usually best to find a good commercially made brand. We use a gourmet potato salad, and quite frankly, I can't make it as good as they do. We also go thru about 60lbs each day. I would rather spend my time focusing on why folks come to my place to start with, the smoked meats.

407 BBQ tater salad is good like momma used to make, even if Tritonman doesn't make his own. I drive 25 miles for his brisket, beans, tater salad and nanner pudding. It's awesome

Used to be a BBQ joint in the 50s and 60s called Leonards. I think it was on the corner of McLemore and Bellview.
I've never had as good pulled pork, beans, and cole slaw as his. The cole slaw was served on the pulled pork sandwich. I still do it that way.

I second the notion to cross the Mississippi state line and eat at Memphis BBQ Company in Horn Lake. The owners of that place have won awards at the Memphis in May competition a few times. Also, a pulled pork sammich just isn't rightbwithout cole slaw.

Central BBQ pulled pork nachos are some of the best I've had. I like Central but when I go there the group I go with always gets a meat and cheese plate and I get nachos. I don't think I've ever ate a rib there.

I can make as good a rib (I don't eat beef ribs but rarely) at home and I hate paying a by the lb place for a rib bone that I ain't gonna eat...so I rarely get a rib at a good BBQ place. I stick to pork/chicken/beef/turkey at most.
