Good BBQ at my house tonight. Went bunless but still had my homemade slaw. Think I'll sleep good tonight.

I don't think there is really a proper way to make slaw, it all depends on a person's taste. It reminds me of the time I wanted to make authentic borscht for a Christmas dinner, the theme of which was mid-European. I found dozens of "authentic" borscht recipes, all were very different.

Funny, all my friends that are Memphis natives, and even the transplants, love the Rendezvous, and the original Corkys location.......
BTW, Charlie Vergo, owner of the Rendezvous, passed away last month.
Ahhh, sorry to bring back an old post, but this was the thread I was looking for, recently resurrected on the memphis board. Lots of into on the world famous Rendezvous, most of it negative - it's a place for tourists. We in memphis know better...useful thread for BBQ lovers traveling to Memphis and don't want to get caught up in the Corky's/Rednezvous hype.

BEST BAR B QUE in MEMPHIS

See?

It's OK on the side, and I don't HAVE to have it - just preferred.

Actually, Alabama has a unique sauce, read back in this thread and you will find it covered here.

I do. I hate slaw. I would rather eat potato salad, and even then, it really don't like that very much either. It must be a cold food thing. Unless it is a drink or a dessert, I don't want it cold.

slaw ON a BBQ sandwich just doesn't sound right to me. But, y'all must like it.

Slaw is a afterthought side dish in Texas and Oklahoma, definitely not something to put on a sandwich. I had never heard of this until the first time I visited Memphis a few years ago. I have also had it in Arkansas since then. Maybe it's because its something people like on pork (not me!) and I live in beef world. The appropriate sides with bbq are beans, potato salad, and peach cobbler for dessert. YUM!

We moved to north AL about a year ago from SW GA after having lived there most of my life. I never saw slaw on a BBQ sandwich until we moved here, nor had I ever seen the white BBQ sauce until here. I really like both! I was a little surprised when they brought me my sandwich, and it had slaw on it - but I just went with it and liked it very much! (They also have a pork stuffed baked potatoe that is so sinful!!!) Think it depends on the slaw, since I like more of the mayo type slaw like my mother has always made.

The way I make cole slaw - I buy a bag of the angel hair cole slaw (I have gotten lazy ! LOL) and a jar of Marzetti's dressing. I mix in about half mayo and half Marzetti's. Chop up some of my mother's home made pickles (SWEET of course ) and pour in a little of the pickle juice. The secret is in the pickle juice and to add a little of the mayo and Marzetti's at a time. It is easy to put too much in. The cabbage will "settle" more than you think. Just adjust it to your preference.
