 BBQ for Breakfast?

BBQ for Breakfast? Sun, 03/14/04 11:07 AM (permalink)
I was at Hays Smokehouse in Lexington Tennessee yesterday. I noticed that their hours on Saturday started at 8:00AM. I ask Mr. Hays about that and he indicated that he had customers everyday requesting BBQ for breakfast. Since I got there at 10:00AM, I guess technically that was breakfast? I had just never considered this a breakfast thing.

    Mr. Sundancer, have you forgotten that Mr. Mayor and I like to arise before you porch dogs and seek out BBQ for breakfast?????

    When I was a young man in the early 80's, I would often drive from my apartment in Austin to Louie Mueller's in Taylor for breakfast. Fred Fontaine, the pitmaster then, would open the place at 6 or 7. He would have a pot of fantastic coffee made, and he'd cut whatever was ready to eat there or to take out. It was a usual stop for the construction workers.

    They don't do that now. It was different back then.

      Yep, Bush and I had made two stops on the Tennessee run before the city boys got their coffee in the morning !!! Ok so one of the two wasn't open yet.... and the other was leftover ribs fromt he night before...Oh well!!
      We have done Louis Muellers at 9am a couple of times, with my mom with us !! She didn't want to do the Hot Links, but can gnaw a rib or two with the best of us when the Sun is just getting started!! (BTW Mom is 92 !)

        "BBQ! It's What's for Breakfast!"

        Very catchy slogan.

        Al-The Mayor, your mama rocks! i can see her telling Willard Scott the secret of longevity is ribs for breakfast.

          Well, I for one am from the school of thought that if it tastes good then it is good for any meal. I enjoy many different things for breakfast and have been know to eat just about anything leftover. So, as much as I love B-B-Q, I'd eat it for breakfast in a heartbeat !!!

            I always enjoy the slogan "BBQ, it's not just for breakfast anymore!"

              Mr. Mayor: God Bless Your Mama! I could not do BBQ for breakfast. I can barely get down a cup of joe or tea. I know........those darned pickey Yankees........

                leftover pizza, half of yesterday's uneaten sandwich, generic poptart, girl scout cookies, crackers n peanut butter, the last piece of chicken from the bucket....all perfectly valid breakfast choices du jour @ Chez Jackson at 6am

                If I had some good bbq...heck, even barely adequate bbq...that'd fill the empty space for a few hours just fine :-)

                  Buddy's in Knoxville was serving breakfast for a while although it seems that they have ceased. Somehow it did not seem to turn folks on.

                  I am not sure that Hays in Lexington Tennessee did a booming business, they did it on a regular basis.

                        And the half-full bowl of Lime Jello with the little marshmellows in it....and a cold pork chop....the crackers and peanut butter have to be the little pkgs of the cheesy crackers and salty coating... and a Mtn Dew or better yet a Big red.

                          Actually, I was amazed at the folks that was at the Hays Smokehouse for breakfast. Perhaps they were stocking up for the day with BBQ?

                          Regardless it was great.

                            Dearfolk,
                            There used to be a barbecue place in Atlanta that opened for breakfast and served a terrific barbecue omelette. Alas, for some reason, they ceased opening for breakfast: now they wait until 11:00 A. M. for all that hoity-toity Buckhead lunch crowd.
                            Sniff. I'll go over to The Lakewood Diner instead. Anything they serve me is always great - and asininely cheap.
                            In my travels, I'm sure to find another place that serves BBQ for breakfast. When such time comes, I'll let y'all know.
                            As If On 'Cue, Ort. Carlton in Unpitted Athens, Georgia.

                              Some leftover liver and onions made a great breakfast this morning.

                                  Yesterday, I had leftover green beans and potatos. I would rather eat left overs than any traditional breakfast food. I would rather have a cold meatloaf sandwich for breakfast than just about anything. I've also had barbecue in the morning. I am an early riser also. I even wake up early on weekends. I think it is just a force of habit.

                                    I'm with you emsmom; the morning is the right time,whether for left over BBQ from the night before, a breakfast burrito, or chicken on a stick bought at a flea market or roadside stand.
                                    I always try and cook enough to have leftovers. Everything looks new in the morning.
                                    My 11 year old son's preferred breakfast is last night 's dinner.....
