    1. Coleslaw, potato salad, baked beans (or some more spicy kind), corn fritters or cornbread. Mac salad is good, too, as is just about any kind of pickle.

      If you'd care for actual recipes for any of these, just ask.

      1. The other night I made Robert's greens with pot liquor along with some slow cooked BBQ chicken. It was fantastic. I used swiss chard. I'd say it's a perfect BBQ side. Thanks to Robert for the recipe, it's a keeper.

        1. re: Hoss

          I was just about to recommend that! I like beet greens and/or kale the best.

          The two accompaniments I want most are a loaf of crusty bread to sop up the sauce and a red wine that can hold its own.

        2. Roasted corn on the cob, orzo salad, couscous salad.

          1. Some of the dishes we like are potato salad, southern greenbeans with tomatoes and green onions, pork & beans, fried corn, tomato and cucumber salad, country fried potatoes, pasta salad, cucumber & onion salad. We like rye bread to sop with.
