BBQ Texas Style!

All my hopes and prayers for the best for folks there on the East Coast. Today I'm the Head Chef cooking up BBQ Texas Style for some family and wishing we could just take the rain they are having. We're in the middle of a major drought here in West Texas and need the rain badly. Ribs, Sausage, Brisket, Baked beans, Potato Salad and last but not least, Corn on the Cob!

With great respect to the ''Republic of Texas'' and all Texans everywhere regardless of location I Seajay the sailor man have this to say.
When it comes to BBQ Brisket is good,,,,,, real good but being a old North Carolina boy I still am very partial to HOG, WHOLE HOG BBQ..... Cooked for at least 8 to 12 hours (according to the size of the hog) cooked very slowly and ''peeked'' at occasionally and the BBQ man sippin on a suds and kepin' his hand on the top of the cooker occasionally to ''test the temp'' and adjusting flame as necessary..... The smoke and the ''smell'' will bring people in for a radious of about 12 miles around the ''cooker''. Fix up some good vinegar base sauce and cook up some good Hush Puppies, slaw, baked beans, several gallons of ''Nanner Puddin'' and some Sweet Ice Tee and just add lots of friends and it dont get no better than that....
I say this with all respect to the Republic of Texas cause I have been thru Texas several times and have eaten their Brisket and ribs.....
One ''Texan'' told me that North Carolina was actually in ''East Texas''... I did not argue with him.........

God keep our troops safe.....

Nothing can beat good old Texas style pit BBQ. KC and the Carolinas are just BBQ wanta'bes. Same goes for Chili...real chili comes from Texas and does not have beans or tomatoes.

Start bad mouthing Texas BBQ, you might just get an uprising.

I have a rack of ribs slooow cooking as I read this thread. Man I'm getting hungry but I have to wait a few more hours. It's time to start whipping up some sides. Reading all these posts made my mouth water. One good thing about RVing is my wife and I can travel the country and eat the best foods in each area.

A good side of slaw comes to mind.. I found a great recipe that mocks what Col Sanders does.. that's the only thing they do that I can say I really like. Easy to do.. but time consuming... but, well worth it. IMO

Well. Without braging, everybody that knows anything about BBQ ing KNOWS that BBQ was INVENTED IN NORTH CAROLINA and that is a fact. Just go over to the Lexington NC BBQ festival and just ''sniff'' and then ''taste'' and I SEajay the sailor man, do gareentee you will fall in love with ''Roasted Hog'', ribs and all the good stuff, North Carolina Style.
Seriously ..... BBQ is all a matter of taste and the area you grew up in. In NC pigs are king when it comes to BBQ. That is the way it is and the way it always will be. When we travel and are gone for two or three months we usually carry at least 5 pounds of 'Tarheel Q' in the freezer frozen in two and three sandwich portions. We talked to a ranger in Zion that said he came to NC for two reasons. To ride the Blue Ridge Parkway and to eat NC BBQ. We went and fixed him a BBQ sandwich and he said the park was ours ....lol...
It is a fact in Texas and South Carolina and North Carolina and anywhere and every where they serve, sell, cook, or ''give away free'' BBQ that ''theirs is the best'' and each will argue you in the ground concerning this. It is all a matter of taste and where you come from ''YOURS TASTES THE BEST''...
Nuff said for now ........

Everyone should thank vet for your freedoms ... some of them died giving them to us..
