    I want BBQ! Once you've had the good stuff, you can never go back. (And I'm from the North... so my BBQ opportunities are few and far between.)

    I'm dying for some good o'l smokey barbecue right now! I'd kill for a sandwich with cole slaw on it right now, but I'd settle for some ribs, even though I hate getting my fingers messy!

    Now ya'll have me craving some good BBQ. The good stuff is so good, but unfortunately I've also had some bad BBQ.

    May have to make a trip to Sticky Fingers this weekend for some ribs. Doxie's husband will be so jealous, I understand he is in LOVE with Sticky Fingers, but they don't have them in Alabama, just here in good ole' South Carolina.

    And Prhoshay, that's what makes good BBQ so good is the mess. It ain't "Q" if it ain't messy!

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    Okay, I do like real barbecue (but not pork) -- "low and slow" is pretty darned awesome! So, in the South, would that make up for my not liking sweet tea, fried anything, or high-fat anything?
    (I know you said you could make me fat without anything fried -- but after working to lose more than 200 pounds, I'm definitely not eager to have to go back to Plus-Size Land!!! I LIKE my size 12 jeans -- which is ultra-plus in California, but tiny when I visit family back in Wisconsin. Go figure.)

    Congrats on the weight loss! I've been enjoying the occasional pulled pork sandwich since reaching goal.

    But it's not BBQ if it's not pork! ducking and running before the Texas brisket fans arrive

    You are right! Mr. Doxie LOVES the food at Sticky Fingers. He ate there three times in two days the last time we were in Chattanooga. We don't have one here, but we can buy the Sticky Fingers sauce in the grocery stores. They'll also ship bbq to you through their website (have not tried this) for those of you who are wanting some Q!

    I've planted two okra plants and I am looking forward to some fried okra. I'm also going to attempt to make some pickled okra. I had a bloody mary recently that had pickled okra intead of a celery stalk in it and it was wonderful!

    Pickled okra is a good friend of mine. Don't care, one whit, about fried okra.

    Oh, you mash them up first--the bananas, silly! It hasbananas, pineapple, nuts, etc...hell, I'll go post it in the Recipe thread. I have no idea why it's named that, but have heard several theories.
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.
