Can I just get the barbeque plate with potato salad, baked beans, and cole slaw?

MBMouse is from a Polish town. I don't think so! That's ME-ME-ME-ME!!!!!!!

I want the Polish dinner!!!!!!

I just found out my family is from Posen, Poland. I am ENTITLED!

Um, Alleycat...Are you sure you want that coleslaw? I can take it off your hands...

I'll take the barbecue but not the kind they serve up in Knoxville.

I love barbeque. My husband has it down to a science. He makes baby back ribs with the best honey bbq sauce and he can grill or smoke them and they are wonderful. All his friends want his recipe, but he keeps it a secret. He also can grill up just about anything on the bbq. Another of my favorites is Beef TriTip. He also grills artichokes, asperagus, corn on the cob, etc. My mom makes the best cole slaw I have ever had. My parents also make great fish and chips. They learned from my dad's folks. I'll have to try making haluski. Kielbasa we eat a lot of already.
Well that's all. WC8

anyone see the recent special on Food Network about the Pork BBQ Championship held in Memphis. Like the locals said, "it's all about cooking low & slow" Yummy!! I would consider a road trip to sink my teeth into that good stuff!

Challenge: Memphis in May BBQ
The best barbecue teams in the south gather in Memphis, Tennessee to compete for a $24,000 prize and the title of world champion. More than 200 teams come to this week-long party and pork-only contest, hoping their ribs, shoulder or whole hog will stand out above the rest.

Oh let me tell you, it is worth the drive to Memphis for the bbq! I've been all over the country and have had good bbq just about everywhere. But I've never experienced anything like Memphis. It's like the entire city is insanely passionate about bbq. I mean I think bbq sauce flows through their veins. Ask 10 different Memphians where to get the best bbq in Memphis and you'll get 10 different answers. But the neat thing is, they're all correct.

I'll keep the cole slaw, thank you. You can have my piece of chess pie . . . this once.

Hi guys and gals, I have some catchin up to do so here goes. One of the best places to get homemade fried chicken is the state park in Crossville, they also have the best coleslaw and cold ham, shoot all of there food is homemade and so good it'll make your tongue smack your brains out. One of the best catfish restaurants that I've been to in a while is called Ragland Bottom and it's between Smithville and Sparta(you can also get there from Cookeville) just take the Smithville exit off of I-40 and keep going several miles after you cross over the river. They also have great hushpuppies, one other ingredient that alot of southerners put in their hp's is chopped onions. Yum, yum. Another southern food that I havn't seen listed here is cracklin bread and home fried tenderloins. As for Spam, it's made from the parts of the pork that has to be hand picked from the bone because the machine can only get so much off. It's still real good quality (nothing gross like hearts, tongues, snouts and stuff like that), I actually found this out from a documentary. Great to hear from all of you and have a walk down memory lane, as I grew up on a farm and ate most of what ya'll have talked about. Except for grits (YUCK). Grits to me means: Girls Raised In The South! Yee, Haw!!!

I'm with you on the grits. Give those to the tourists. ;-)

And, yep, I've had cracklin' bread, and tenderloin that came from the farmer who raised the hog (that's hard to get these days).

Kitty Cat, you are a great source of information. I thought Spam came from the spamelope, a hooved African animal.
