BBQ Season in NC Sun, 10/6/13 3:28 PM (permalink)
I bought this plate at the Methodist church on my way home Friday. It weighed in at almost 20 oz and was very good! I'm looking forward to the upcoming fundraisers by churches, fire departments, schools, etc.

    I bought this sweet potato pie at the Presbyterian church bazaar yesterday. It was a perfect finish to the BBQ plate.

            3 Olives,

            We passed several church BBQ sales this weekend. How does the quality generally compare to commercial places?

              I think moonshiners may be Baptist.
              Without telling the whole joke (told me by a Baptist) it goes:
               
              Baptists don't recognize ... (fill in the blank re: religious doctrine);
              the punchline is -
              And Baptists don't recognize each other in the liquor store!
               
              Actually, if you substitute Presbyterian for Baptist the same joke could be told about my still-dry hometown of New Wilmington, PA.

                That's a difficult question.  The Methodist church I bought the plate from has been doing this for more than 40 years and is very good at it.  There are only a few BBQ restaurants better than them.  Some nonprofits still do pit cooked whole hog BBQ, as they've been doing it for years. That's hard to beat.

                  "Where's the meat!"


                  I know you're kidding, but for those who might confuse the 'Cue with hash browns ...  Genuine 'cue - that which the Natives taught us Euro-types to do - is minced whole hog smoked in a pit.  The only things that box is missing is hush puppies and sweet tea.  I wish I could dive right into that.
                   
                  I know damn well that an Eastern Carolina pit would be a big hit in Texas.  I wonder why someone isn't doing it.  And we have so many feral pigs; why not smoke 'em & mince 'em?!

                    Jim,
                       We are working at spreading the word about the quality of the Pork in those Feral Hogs.  Ask Cajun King about his recent sample of a Missouri Hog done with Caroway and 'Kraut' (Czech-Roast). It isn't traditional BBQ, but it is great eating.
                     
                    Around here, many of the churches in So Indiana do Chicken dinners on the Sunday's after services, thruout the Summer (fundraisers).  In the late Spring the rural communities in Western Kentucky do Community/Church Mutton BBQ. Some of them draw big crowds from all over to the Pit.

                      I've had feral hog.  Simply delicious - rich flavor without any 'gaminess'.  They are seen as destructive (and sometimes dangerous) pests down here in Texas.  They make for good huntin' and great eatin'!

                        You are so right MJ. A coworkers nephew traps them out near Fredricksburg and he gave me a rack of ribs and they were wonderful. Unlike any ribs I have bought and smoked from HEB and no gaminess.

                                Today I met my son for BBQ in Lexington at THE Lexington BBQ on Business 85. Little did we know that this was the weekend of the BBQ Festival in downtown Lexington. There was a line out the door, but it moved quickly and everyone was in a good mellow mood. Usually I won't stand in line for anything, but Lexington BBQ is an exception! It was outstanding.... as usual, My son asked for his sandwiches "brown" which includes some of the charred outside bits of the meat which is extra smoky. Oh, my!

                                    I love Brunswick Stew!  I don't know that I've ever seen rice in it before, but it seems like a no-brainer to absorb some of the liquid.
                                     
                                    I'm also a big fan of North Carolina BBQ, having lived in Greensboro, Raleigh, and Durham for several years.
