A Lion's Choice roast beef sandwich would be good too.

My apologies as I have not read through this entire thread, but I did do a search and came up with nothing.

Can you get marshmallow fluff in NC?

I ask because about 13-14 years ago I worked with a woman whose son used to go to NC to visit his relatives. She always had to send a jar of fluff with him since that's all he would he eat and they didn't carry it in NC. I was wondering if that was still true.

Josh,

Texas BBQ is slow cooked and smoked. Briskett, Chicken, Ribs.... smoked really, really well. You might use a sauce or not. Wood might be hickory, mesquite, or pecan. You may use a rub, but more than likely you mop it with a sauce/marinade/liquid will smoking to help break down the meat. THERE MUST BE A PIT. None of this oven stuff for us.

My Dad is here this weekend and I am putting him to work starting tomorrow!

Also...




Can you not just get that at Steak n' Shake?

Anyway, one of my buddies is from Philly. He says that Geno's and Pat's are overrated and that there are some better Philly Cheesesteak places. Got friends from Chicago who are always arguing about which pizza place is the best up there.

I wish I could travel and hang out with Adam Richman from Man v. Food and eat everywhere he eats.

The main difference is that in TX BBQ is a verb, NC BBQ is a noun.

No no no nooooooo. No. They are unique. The buns, the dogs, the mustard, the chili, the cheese and how finely it's shredded, the onions (so finely chopped it's like they're grated). The spaghetti, the beans, the oyster crackers. The seasonings in the chili! Noooooooo. <sigh>
