Final BBQ Update

  • d

I'm sorry it's taken so long to send in the last update after returning home on Tuesday. As you might imagine, I spent the first day relaxing and eating things other than pork or beef. Then I had to head back out of town Thursday morning. I'll try to send the last update from the road, but I also want to take my time and include some wrap-up thoughts about the trip.

Thanks again to everyone who followed along and sent me messages along the way. It really was a blast.

  1. Will look forward to it, although I'm still a little disappointed by that salad you ate in Tuscaloosa.

      The salad was in Tunica, where there wasn't any 'cue to be had anyway (I was there for the casinos).

      The only thing I ate in Tuscaloosa was ribs and white bread. I promise.

        Congrats on a great report. The photos were wonderful, and I especially liked the photo of the chocolate pie carcass.

          And I especially liked the chocolate pie!

          Thanks for reading, and I'm glad you enjoyed it.

            It was an interesting read, but I was a little disappointed that you didn't cover:

            *Eastern NC
            *The Midlands & Lowcountry of SC

            I'd wager that these places have even better Q than most of the places you went. Have you covered these areas already, or do you intend to do so in the future?

            Remember: If it moos, it ain't Q!

              Thanks for reading it and for the feedback. I'm sorry I disappointed you by not covering more turf. This trip was merely a vacation. I'm not a professional barbecue eater, nor an author. I would love to get to the places you mentioned at some point, particularly the rest of SC and Georgia, but 3200 miles in 12 days was enough for now.

              If I ever do a follow-up trip, you can rest assured I'll let the chowhounders know.
