What about sticky fingers?? I know someone out there has tried and fallen in love with those ribs!! come on, guys?


Since when can the "best" BBQ be made in a place that has an internet website? Sounds suspicious to me. Real "Cue" folks (slang for BBQ) don't bother with technology much less websites. They are too busy keeping watch on that pig in the ground.


Is Old Glory the BBQ place where they give you dry pork and you get to choose a sauce from each of the different "Barbeque Regions" (e.g. vinegar-based, tomato-based) around the nation? I remember eating at one like that in Georgetown and thought that was a really interesting concept. Good place, IMO.


We have those too, and they are also sometimes referred to as "barbecues". Usually though, especially in my neck of the woods, what you describe would be called a "cookout". It's funny how everything is the same except it's a little bit different...


Thanks for that clarification Mark. Down here, a BBQ is a social event - an easy way to feed a multitude. Just last sunday night we all (50+) went to our youth pastor's house for a BBQ - BYO meat, and the boys all head out the back and burn the meat :)


And for someone *not* from the South, we use the terms barbecueing (sp?) and grilling interchangably... as in "we're having bbq. bring your own meat to put on the gril."

I know I know, such an unpardonable sin! (One must explain the finer points of bbq to this redhead.) Altho if y'all are ever out in the seattle area, one MUST stop by Big Al's. Quite good. ;)


Just to clarify for anyone outside the US, "barbecue" refers to a particular style of cooking beef or pork in the South. The style varies depending on which part of the country you're in. In Texas, it's brisket. In Kansas City, it's ribs. Where I come from, it's all about pulled pork. But trust me, it's all good.

Fincher's BBQ in Macon, Ga. The best BBQ in the south... so I've heard. I like it.


I can't understand going OUT to eat BBQ. That's something you do at home with all your friends....or is that just the way us Aussies do BBQ's?


Okay Mark...I have a question for you. Do you like pulled or chopped? Do you like the vinegar bbq of eastern NC or not? That is personally my favorite. I need to know so I can make sure you get some good bbq when you come to Raleigh in October for the State Fair.

    What's in my CD player

    • R.E.M. -

      R.E.M.: Accelerate CD/DVD
      Athens' own return with a trashy cool offering - their most consistent album in years. I think they're mad at their dad or something (****)

    • The Rolling Stones -

      The Rolling Stones: Shine a Light: Original Soundtrack
      This is what a live album SHOULD sound like. Unedited, unfixed - just a good recording of what happened that night... (****)

    • Mudcrutch -

      Mudcrutch: Mudcrutch
      Tom Petty and Mike Campbell reunite with their old band and forge an instant classic. (****)

    • Counting Crows -

      Counting Crows: Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings
      It was pretty gutsy to lay it out the way they did: all the rockers on the "Saturday Night" section and all the ballads on the "Sunday Morning" side. But it works, and in a major way. Some of the best guitar work I've heard in recent memory. (*****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: The Lost Crowes
      WHY DIDN'T ANYBODY TELL ME ABOUT THIS RECORD?! You've heard most of these songs on other records, but it's just so raw and band-y here. Fall in love with the best band in the world all over again... (*****)

    • Pillar -

      Pillar: For The Love Of The Game
      So far this is the album to beat for the rock album of 2008 in the Christian market... The title track has kind of been my "theme song" the last couple of months. (*****)

    • Maylene and the Sons of Disaster -

      Maylene and the Sons of Disaster: II
      The perfect blend of Southern rock and metal - this is my favorite album right now. (*****)

    • Kevn Kinney -

      Kevn Kinney: Broken Hearts & Auto Parts
      I picked this up in Athens the other day. It starts out a little slow, but turns into vintage Kevn Kinney/Drivin n Cryin. This is as good as anything he/they have ever put out! (****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: Warpaint
      If you look up "killer" in the dictionary, you will find a picture of these guys.

    • Baroness -

      Baroness: Red Album
      So far the most original and inspiring music I've heard this year... (*****)

    • Down -

      Down: Down - Over The Under
      This is easily the most rockin' records I've ever owned. It's like redneck Soundgarden. Heaven for a dude like me... (*****)

    • Demon Hunter -

      Demon Hunter: Storm the Gates of Hell
      Don't let the "metalcore" label fool you. This album features some of the biggest and hookiest choruses you'll ever hear. "Lead Us Home", "Carry Me Down", and "Thorns" are great examples. Plus I think they'll give you your money back if the title track doesn't make your ears bleed :) (*****)
