Lucky

I've never eaten at many BBQ restaurants in all my traveling. This year I decided to start trying some. Here is what I've found. We are very very lucky to have the knowledge and equipment to to cook BBQ at home. I have has some good, some bad BBQ. Decent side dishes. But nothing close to the BBQ I cook on a bad day. And I listen to the locals when I ask for the best place to eat, how good they tell me it is. I haven't had any that tastes like mop water yet, but most is is edible at best. It is amazing what folks think good BBQ tastes like. Just an observation from a home BBQ cook.

Re: Lucky

Double dittos to that. It does not take long for a person to turn into a bbq snob when they get into cooking the stuff at home or at comps on a regular basis. I gave up trying to find any decent store bought bbq years ago. I dont think it exists. If it does exist they keep it hid purty good We have a chain down here called Dickey's. They cook on some fancy commercial Oylers but the brisket comes out like mush. Fortunately they tend to have some good side dishes. The veggie plate with peach cobbler for dessert is the best deal in the house.

Re: Lucky

Come on up Tim!


(BW, we have a few of those "Dickey's" joints opening up here. Had a line cook that wasn't happy with his financial income at my place of BBQ worship and he went to work at that place. I asked him what it was like and he said "mushy".) Ironic???

Re: Lucky

You're so right. If I want good food I'll make it myself.

Re: Lucky

Tim I gotta say we have some pretty good Q restaurants in Columbus, OH "City BBQ" and I did hit "Q BBQ" Tuffy Stone's in Richmond VA, good too. Next on my list is Puff's I'll report back after my next trip north.

Re: Lucky

Well I was beginning to think the crappy store bought bbq was a Texas thang. I have a pal who went on a two week or so eating tour of Kansas City. He said they have much mo betta bbq than us and they are super generous with the portion control. Guess I best send him to Columbus on his next eating foray.

Best "Q" you can cook in an "Easy Bake" oven!

Is that a nice way of saying to skip Lazybones Smokehouse? ... maybe I'll hit Dickey's ... now they do use an "Easy Bake Oven"

Re: Lucky

TIm, I tell my wife if it is not better than what I can make at home we are paying to have someone do the dishes and keep the beer flowing no matter what kind of food. I can honestly say that I cannot name a BBQ place around here. We have a Famous Dave's but have yet to have eaten there. We had a great Thai place but it just closed. Out of the 20 or 30 Mexican joints we have, there are 2 that can make a burrito worth buying, sad.
