    They don't grow cows in the Carolina's, only pigs and chickens. Hence the ignorance about what real BBQ tastes like and how it is cooked.

    yes, BBQ is bigger, better and tastier in Texas. I tried to like the vinegar and mustard sauce when I lived in Charleston.

    What is "mustard and pig skins" in GA?  I guess that is mustard based sauce and cracklins?  The only time I have had mustard based sauce in GA was when it was labeled "Carolina style" :)



    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    @egger ave, this is all in good jest, I s'pose.

    TXans know cow. We know BBQ. Many styles and varieties. Yu want BBQ, come hither. We do love your steaks. And you can keep your cowboy oysters right there.

    :D

    Again, I am just jestin and don't make this a war.

    not a war either, just having fun. BBQ is like beer. Everyone has a favorite. I happen to like Pearl. Have a great week and cook something great this weekend.

    Just teasing, guys.

    You guys must know what they say... Never ask a man if he's a Texan, if he is, you'll know, if not... you don't want to embarrass him.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    I guess that is the good thing about being in Indiana. I have pigs and cows readily available. I love them both! But I have thoroughly enjoyed this discussion! I have had BBQ in the Carolinas, Kansas City, Oklahoma, and Texas and I must admit, Texas and Oklahoma seem to have it right.

    Charleston for Mustard sauce, east of 85 in NC for Carolina BBQ(i.e vinegar mop - the birthplace of American BBQ). Other direction for that Lexington stuff.
  • Hi54puttyHi54putty Posts: 1,631
    @Eggcelsior, I'm a Lexington BBQ guy but don't totally disagree with your general premise. I'm happy with most anything in NC. No mustard around here, thank goodness.

    VI is right. I was just joshing. BBQ wasn't even invented in America. Different strokes for different folks.

    I am familiar with the city and both rivers. One of my favorite places to eat. Great restaurants on every corner. Just pointing out that it isn't in NC, the home of Q.

    What the history books didn't record, is that he followed that up with "to eat tasty brisket and beef ribs."  :D

    Just to sauce things up, and toss a couple more logs on the fire:

    Read this, from a very amusing fellow who also claims NYC is the biggest 'Q town in America,

    Now departing as the sporks and slaw cups start flying...

    A few years ago, a fellow from NYC came down and told us he was starting a BBQ joint in NYC.  We convinced him that it might not be a good idea.

    There is no 'Q north of the Manson/Nixon line, so NYC is out.  NC is of course just the upper half of SC, so they have some good Q there as well.  Cow meat is just grillin.
