I watched Emeriel today on the Food Channel. It was a BBQ show where Emeriel was cooking at one of his friends. It featured five winners of a contest and the number one winner was the BBQ cornbread. The guy that won it was from Rossville, GA which is a suburb of Chattanooga. He did basic cornbread, except he used huge amounts of butter and sugar and added a large amount of BBQ pork. The cornbread looked delicious. I would have added onions, jalapeno peppers and some bacon grease.
I would have never thought about adding BBQ shredded pork butte to the mixture. Another thing that I thought strange as he cooked at 350 degrees for one hour and I would have cooked 450 for 45 minutes. I do that for the crust. He also added six eggs to the mixture. I never add more than one or two. Whatever. Sure looked goooooood
