I'm reading A Gold Digger's Guide.

Definition of a player: "he may drive a nice car, live in a fancy home, have a college degree or work for a Fortune 500 Company and earn a five-figure income. To most women, he has it going on...."

Would that be Pork or Beef Bar-b-que?

They are both good, but never on Tuesday.

I kinda thought TX.

Somehow, that place just don't look like Santy Fay.

So what's 'going down' in Texas?

Curious George said...

That place must ROCK on Saturday night.

Althouse: "That is, to refer to oral sex, [Christie] would have [said] something closer to "somebody's going down on something tonight."

In point of fact, Chris Christie and his wife have a completely different name for blow jobs:

Peek-a-Boo.

(Alright, enough fat guy jokes.)

I'm not sure if its the same BBQ place.. but this place may have been featured on the Food Network with Guy Fiery.

LOL!

A large sack of flour also crosses the mind...

If it's Texas, it's beef. (Because, as I think Lewis Grizzard said, you can't steal a pig from a horse.)

In Tennessee, it's pork.

As much as I miss Texas and everything about it, I have to say that Memphis BBQ is better than Texas BBQ.

The BBQ debate. It's as stale as political debates. Everyone loves their pols, bbq, pizza, etc. that they grew up on. When people travel and eat other cuisines w/ an open mind they see that it's all good...just different. Who says travel is overrated? Only the myopic, or the phobic.

That's in Sweetwater, Texas?

I grew up 100 miles from there, due west across the prairies. Damn fine people there.

@ Class factotum: As a lifelong Texan, I absolve you from your feelings of guilt.

Barbecue, done properly, is a religion that can easily embrace both beef and pork varieties. The Goddesses of Barbecue are remarkably ecumenical and inclusive, tolerant of odd ingredients and competing flavors.

Barbecue is like sex. It can be bad, but there are many, many, many ways for it to be good, sometimes sublime.

So enjoy your pork in TN and your beef in TX, or vice versa -- guilt-free.

I went through Sweetwater yesterday. And I have eaten at Big Boy's; it is good bbq.

Sweetwater is not far where there was a naughty rock on a ranch that was subsequently painted over.

Carol said...

oh man I miss Texas barbecue! It was always the same, and it was always good.

Unfortunately, I am now in Wisconsin where there is no BBQ of worth to be found. We do, however, have cheese curds and brats, but all things considered, I'd rather be back in Texas.

East Texas has pork barbecue, but it's beef by default everywhere west of the Big Muddy.

I love pork barbecue Lexington style, but I long for Texas brisket.

Wisconsin has no appreciation of the pig whatsoever, except to grind him into small bits and stuff said bits into an intestine.

8pm seems like an awfully early time for a restaurant to close.

Interesting - in that the Tejas BBQ cuisine was established by German immigrants.
Same as the Wisconsin bratwurst thing.
Perhaps the immigrants made the best of what was available?

When I was in the U.S. Army stationed at Ft. Benning newcomers to post would often ask me where they could find good barbecue. My answer was always the same; go to Atlanta, get on Interstate 20, head west, keep driving until you see mesquite trees, you will be somewhere west Texas, pull over.
