        Tough to limit it to two. Different Q calls for different sides...with that in mind:

        Chicken - beans & potato salad
        Ribs - a fine sliced or thread slaw & beans
        pulled pork - thread slaw & homemade hot pickle chips
        brisket - beans & more brisket

          Cole slaw (gotta be cold cold)
          Baked beans (gotta be hot)

          maybe mac and cheese

            Brisket Same as Ribs
            Pulled Pork -My Brides Potato Salad
            Chicken - Corn on the Cob
            Shrimp - French Bread
            Possom - Listerine!

              Great rule!

              On topic, cole slaw and... I don't know. It depends on the place. I love the Salt Lick's potato salad. But some other places, not so much. I don't like eggy (eggey? eggie?) salads. Some places the beans are great. Sometimes it's a good corn on the cob. So definitely cole slaw and something else.

                oh, I forgot about french bread and BBQ Shrimp. Real New Orleans BBQ Shrimp, the hot sauce, garlic, pepper, beer and butter stuff...not the BBQ sauced shrimp you'll see in bars and pubs from time to time.

                As i think about it, other bbq doesn't really need sides like bbq shrimp need good bread. Do I like slaw with pulled pork? Sure. But you just can't eat BBQ shrimp without crusty french bread.

                    Really depends on the restaurant. If it's Smitty's in Lockhart, it will be their beans. If it's Deli-News in Dallas, their potato salad and pickles.

                            Ice cold cole slaw. Beans. But not the sickly sweet baked beans, more like the mexican pinto's simmered wwith smoked ham hocks.

                                  I think its more about knowing what the restaurant is "known for." Even if I was the world's biggest coleslaw fan, I wouldn't order it if the joint was known for doing something better.

                                    What is barbecue slaw?

                                    Hushpuppies, yes! I don't see them that often though. Are they a regional thing as far as BBQ is concerned?

                                            slaw, maybe beans. the potatoes, hot or cold, leave you too full.

                                              My personal favorite sides are fried okra and black eyed peas, but I don't know of my places serving them. The bbq place closest to my home does serve them, but when I eat elsewhere I try to determine what they do best. I love good slaw, baked beans, and most other well prepared sides.

                                                What is barbecue slaw?

                                                Hushpuppies, yes! I don't see them that often though. Are they a regional thing as far as BBQ is concerned?


                                                BBQ slaw is indigenous to the Piedmont region of North Carolina..Lexington style, in other words....it's a slaw
                                                made with a thin red vinegar sauce.


                                                And I'll take eastern slaw with hushpuppies, please.

                                                  Good slaw is important to the barbecue experience, especially with pork barbecue. None of that mayo-drenched junk, either, a vinegar dressing for slaw is best. It can be slightly creamy, but not creamy like potato salad. Yuck.

                                                  Baked beans come next.

                                                  Non-gloppy potato salad after that.

                                                  Corn on the cob is a favorite with ribs; you are already a bit messy on the fingers; why not take advantage of it?

                                                      often, I feel so limited and unfulfilled when the choice is only two sides. I'd rather pick 4 half sized sides - variety is the spice of life.

                                                          2? Grilled italian bread and green salad.

                                                          4? Grilled italian bread, green salad, corn, potato salad.


                                                          Grilled italian bread: Take a loaf, cut it in half, then lengthwise half again (4 pieces), place on grill till nicely toasted. I like it almost burned.
