This weekend I will be hosting a BBQ for a group of extremely Southern Folk.
Being from the city, I am not very confident with myself in the Southern cooking department.
I plan on doing Burgers, Fried Chicken, and Chicken Wings. Pretty much finger foods, being that it will be outside.
I am going to use SmokyMtnGals Fried Chicken recipe (will this work the same in a "Fry Daddy" type of fryer?)
Any recipes that are your Southern Favorite for wings and Sides?

I tend to lean too much on the "healthy" side. The last party that we went to, I offered to bring something as an appetizer, veggie plate, shrimp, clams ect. Which was shot down quickly. That was ok because the food they prepared was OUT OF THIS WORLD, I could not compare.

So what is your favorite Southern Foods for a BBQ setting ?????????

Appreciate all your help.
From a country girl at heart, raised in the city.

Biscuits and gravy - succotash - home made corn bread - I would welcome all of these to go with a Southern BBQ.

If you're looking to blow your guests away with a coronary bypass-inducing dish, google Paula Deen - she makes things that are sooo scrumptious but I can feel my arteries flapping shut just watching her pile on the butter and fat.

q........what time and where?

I have never done fried chicken in a fry daddy/baby, etc. Let us know how it turns out.

Sides to consider: cole slaw, baked beans, potato salad or mashed potatoes, deviled eggs, green beans, corn bread and/or biscuits. Lots of sweet iced tea. Desserts are a whole 'nuther post!

Qbaby,put that chicken on the grill and BBQ it.

Gotta have some corn on the cob too.

For desert some homemade nanner puddin or homemade icecream,trust me on these.

Qbaby,if you've never made nanner puddin before,I would ask one of the older women folk how to do it right.

Honey just a warning....if you decide to do cornbread and biscuits (hey that could be a song!!) Do not even attempt to serve store bought or something from a mix....
You will be opening yourself up for statements that start with "Bless your Heart."

OK so far what I have come up with.........

I am doing burgers (I make a killer burger), Chicken both fried (for me, haven't had fried chic in a long time) and BBQ, chicken wings and pulled pork sandwiches.
Thinking about Baked beans, cole slaw and potato salad.
Corn on the cob sounds good also.
Its my sons B-day so b-day cake for dessert.

I would really like to make some fried green beans, fried okra and sweet corn nuggets.

Anyone have favorite recipes for these^^?
Unfortunately my oven is not working properly at this moment so I will have to by pass the breads.
Quite honestly, I have a feeling I am going to have tons of left overs, so I think I am going to keep it simple.

I will check out Paula Deen for some recipes.

I tend to cook on the healthier side-may have to adjust my ways.

Keep them coming !

Thanks All !

I make mine in the pressure cooker. A whole pig roasted in a pit fire all day is good too.

When you make that potato salad, use Duke's not anything else. DO NOT use Miracle Whip or that will start another round of "Bless your heart".

Duke's is a SOUTHERN mayo. Started here in the south (actually by a Mrs. Eugenia Duke in Greenville, SC) about 90 years ago and has NEVER had sugar in it. Go check any other mayo and it has sugar listed as an ingredient. The History of Duke's Mayonnaise (broken link) Duke's Mayonnaise - Get in on the Secret of Great Southern Cooks Liz
